CACI honoured with Armed Forces Gold Award
CACI has been recognised by the UK government for its continued support for the Armed Forces with the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award.
The ERS Gold Award is the highest badge of honour for organisations which have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and demonstrated outstanding support for those who serve and have served. The Awards recognise employers who actively support the Armed Forces community in their workplace and encourage others to follow their lead.
“We are extremely proud to be awarded the Gold Award under the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme,” said Cathy Sutherland, Senior Vice President, Head of CACI IIG. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to supporting the armed forces and providing opportunities for reservists and cadets. We are grateful for the support of the Greater London Reserve Forces and Cadets Association and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
To win a Gold Award from the Ministry of Defence, organisations must show that they provide 10 extra paid days leave for reservists and have supportive HR policies in place for veterans, reserves, Cadet Force adult volunteers and spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces. They must also advocate the benefits of supporting those from the Armed Forces community, encouraging others to improve their own practices.
The ERS was launched to recognise and reward employers who support Defence and inspire others to do the same.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. More information about the Armed Forces Covenant and how to get involved is available here.
