Armed Forces Covenant...

PROUDLY SUPPORTING
THOSE WHO SERVE.

Reservists are warmly welcome to work in our Company and we are proud to work with SaBRE to promote such support and ways of employment to embrace the rich skills and contribution such employees can bring. The consultation into a new framework, structure and approach for reserves and the overall shape and integration with the serving personnel was as a consequence of the last Strategic Defence and Security Review {SDSR}.

The Future Reserves 2020 consultation took in some 3,000 views and the majority of them were from businesses (including our Company). The objectives were to look at the reserves, their structure, skills and needs for the year 2020 and beyond. This is a key report on Future Reserves 2020. The key outcomes are:
  • Reservist numbers will rise and they will form a greater proportion of the Armed Forces
  • Most Reservists will have an increased training commitment to ensure they are fully prepared to serve with the Armed Forces when required
  • The UK MoD will build closer relationships with employers, with the aim of giving greater predictability as to when Reservists will be required for training or deployment
  • The accredited military training that Reservists receive will help develop highly valued skills that can be easily transferred to their civilian roles
  • For employers or mobilised Reservists, the UK MoD will revise financial assistance regulations and introduce a financial incentive for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
The Future Reserves 2020 Key Facts and Consultation Documents are all detailed for Employers and Reservists on the various links on the government website now and will be briefed out via the SaBRE Regional Teams and website.

Reservists and ex-forces and forces families will enjoy additional special benefits working with us. We believe our employment benefits are very good but these are added to for the forces to support their commitment to the country and our allies. We are looking to even expand on those by offering Single Living Accommodation and Married Quarters at or near each and every site where possible.

These forces-friendly benefits help with training commitments, deployments, welfare needs and reflect the contribution they also bring back in exemplary skills, commitment and attitude within the workplace. We respect the Forces Contract and as such our benefits and employee terms and conditions make significant allowances for an individual to be a Reservist. We also structure our work, workplace and the way we organise the Comnpany and projects to allow for the needs of additional (service) training and mobilisation(s). If you design this in to the organisation it is possible to ensure a huge win all-round.

The organisation clearly will grow and change, so it is crucial to review each employee annually and take into account any Reservist training or developmental activity - and ensure that is rewarded, but also look to embrace such in the workplace. The facilities and sites may over time change and develop, but it is the people in the organisation that are crucial and are the real asset. Reservists contribute to that richness in a whole host of ways and SaBRE produce excellent resource kits for employers to explain these.

In keeping with the sensible and respectful traditions it is the company policy to support, not just that defined in our Corporate Covenant, but a series of key dates depicting loyal service and solemn sacrifice for the safety and security of the British people, our allies and our places around the world. We are hugely proud to play a part in researching advanced capabilities that are non-lethal for such forces. We are also very proud to support where we can resources and skills for such.

Due to Security Reasons, given the work we do, we do not post online our supporting events for each of these or which locations/events we attend.
