Conrad Energy has pledged its continued commitment to treat fairly those who serve, or have served, in the military and their families by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. The Covenant is a promise from the nation to actively support the Armed Forces community, recognising the contribution to the country that serving military personal, veterans and their families have made and continue to make.
Steven Hardman, Managing Director, said “At Conrad Energy we recognise the considerable value of supporting those who have served or are currently serving our country, and those who are connected with the military. We are proud to say we are a ‘forces friendly’ company and signing the Covenant demonstrates our appreciation of the contributions made by serving personnel, veterans and military families and illustrates how we hope to support them in the future.”
By becoming a forces friendly employer and choosing to partner with defence by signing the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC), an organisation demonstrates its intention to support the Armed Forces community and provides the signatory with the opportunity to be recognised by the Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) award. An ERS award shows that the recipient is delivering tangible support for the Armed Forces community. The Ministry of Defence (MOD), as the representative of HM Government, welcomes these commitments and is grateful for the support being pledged and provided.
Since its’ introduction in 2011, nearly 8,000 organisations including businesses and charities have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
