Tivoli Group Ltd is proud to announce it has been awarded Silver Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) status. The organisation recognises the vital role of Britain’s Armed Forces, and the valuable contribution that members of the Reserve Forces make to Britain’s defence, their communities and their civilian workplace.
The Employer Recognition Scheme was launched to reward employers who support Defence People objectives and encourage others to do the same. This includes employing serving and former members of the Armed Forces community and demonstrating flexibility towards training and mobilisation commitments for Reservists and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers.
Tivoli pledged to support the armed forces following the signing of the Armed Forces Covenant in 2020, demonstrating its commitment to support veterans, reservists and their families currently in employment, and to encourage those who serve, or have served, to join the Tivoli team.
Cathy Dawson, Tivoli’s HR Director, said:
“As a long-term provider of grounds services to the Defence Community, Tivoli is thrilled to receive this Silver Award. Service people, veterans and their families occupy a unique place in our society, and we are delighted that our efforts to ensure they feel valued and supported have been recognised. We hope this award will encourage more service leavers, reservists, and cadet instructors to consider Tivoli for their next role, as we recognise their dedication, professional standards, and discipline.”
Commenting on the announcement of the 2021 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards; Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Leo Docherty said:
“I would like to thank all the organisations who have proven their support for the Defence community during such unprecedented and challenging times. The vast range of those recognised this year demonstrates how employing the Armed Forces community makes a truly positive and beneficial impact for all employers, regardless of size, sector or location.”
