Atkins Gregory Pledges Support for the Armed Forces Covenant

Atkins Gregory Pledges Support for the Armed Forces Covenant

Atkins Gregory, Cambridgeshire-based commercial contract cleaning provider, and part of the Monthind Group, is both delighted and proud to announce that it has received the bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), in recognition of our commitment to the scheme.

ERS encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

Atkins Gregory’s Managing Director, Simon Biggs, says: “I am a veteran, ex-Army and a big supporter of the reservists. The Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to those who serve in the armed forces and their families; that commitment continues after they leave the services. Reservists and veterans have a host of skills to bring to the workplace, but sometimes need a little extra support or a helping hand to during the transition to the civilian career ladder. Atkins Gregory is proud to be part of that. It’s not a totally altruistic gesture, though, as a company we benefit from the forces’ training, whether that is in management skills or general work ethics, it makes sense for us to invest in these people.

“Signing up to the Armed Forces Covenant ERS brings a host of positive outcomes to any organisation, it enhances the workforce, not only with skills but also with accredited training; it demonstrates a commitment to local community and Corporate Social Responsibility; and it gives something back to those who would give their lives for our freedom and safety.”
