Reliance Precision Limited (‘Reliance’) is pleased to announce it has been granted the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award.
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) scheme is designed to recognise employers who support the armed forces community and the wider defence industry. Those who receive the award must have signed the Armed Forces Covenant – a pledge to treat those who serve, or have served in the armed forces, fairly and with respect.
As a silver award holder, Reliance has shown that it proactively supports veterans and their spouses or partners; reservists; cadets and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs). The company’s Armed Forces Network was established by veteran employees to provide assistance and advice to reservists and ex-military forces personnel within the Reliance community. In addition to this, the organisation’s ‘Reserve Forces Training and Mobilisation Policy’ provides a practical guide to help ensure reservists are available during times of mobilisation and supported during their subsequent demobilisation.
James Selka DL, Chairman of holding company Reliance RG Limited, commented: “As a family-owned business that has supplied into the aerospace defence industry for over 60 years, we recognise the importance of the armed forces and appreciate the transferable skills and experience that ex-military personnel can bring into the civilian workplace. We are proud to have received the Silver Award and will continue to demonstrate our support and hopefully, inspire others to do the same.”
