EffecTech has been awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award for 2021! This Ministry of Defence award recognises companies for their support to the Armed Forces community, including Reservists, veterans, spouses, Cadet Forces Adult Volunteers and cadets.
EffecTech’s CEO, Dr Gavin Squire said “I was thrilled to receive our notification that EffecTech has been formally recognised for a Silver Award under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. It gives me a sense of immense pride to be in a position to be able to support and recognise the sacrifices made by current and past Armed Forces personnel and to their wider families.
“It is only right that those businesses who are able to do so provide opportunities for employment and other forms of engagement through positive treatment during recruitment. After all, such people have had the best training in life skills any employer could wish for; skills that can be deployed to provide quick wins for any ambitious business.
“By giving back in our small way as payment for their selfless courage I hope that our business can make a difference to the lives of such amazing people.”
