We have been awarded with a prestigious Silver Award from the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) for its commitment to the Armed Forces.
Having only been presented with the Bronze award in May this year and so it is an honour to have quickly been recognised with a Silver for our rich and continued empowerment of veterans up and down the country.
The ERS acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their covenant pledges.
This recognition further rubberstamps SSGC’s commitment to the Armed Forces by way of our recruitment strategies and positive policy implementation.
Our CEO, David Stubbs said: “We are incredibly proud to announce we have been awarded Silver in this scheme.
“It is an amazing recognition for the hard work that everyone at SSGC puts in to support and improve the lives of the military community and their families.
“It has been a very strange and challenging year for many of us and I strongly believe that organisations need to go above and beyond in supporting defence personnel and their families.
“The leadership here at SSGC comprises several veterans, including myself, so we fully recognise the invaluable skills they can bring to any organisation.
“We are so proud of the success we have had in embedding this level of skill into our business and in helping several of them get back to normality after life in the Armed Forces.”
