‘Joining forces’ to benefit employers and staff

Posted: Sun, 16 Feb 2020 11:59 by Lynn Cosgrove

A unique opportunity to learn how being involved with the armed forces community can have a hugely positive impact on local employers is the aim of an event in Market Harborough.

Harborough District Council is hosting a free 'Joining Forces' event encouraging organisations and businesses to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant and pledge a commitment to help support the armed forces community in any way possible. More »

The aim of the event is to get as many employers as possible to sign the Armed Forces Covenant which offers an opportunity to build a reputation as a Forces-friendly business. It will also raise awareness of the diversity of our forces community as a recruitment source and, in turn, provide more job opportunities for them.

The invite is open to any employer in the Harborough district such as businesses, shops, schools, manufacturers, care homes, logistics firms, security firms, medical centres, dentists, or others.

There will be a special group photo taken on the night to celebrate all the employers who have attended on the night to support the initiative.

The event – 'Joining Forces: How partnering with the armed forces community can strengthen your workforce and reputation' – takes place on Monday 16 March 2020, 6pm-7.30pm at Harborough Innovation Centre at Wellington Way, Airfield Business Park, Leicester Road, Market Harborough, LE16 7WB.

Cllr Rani Mahal, Harborough District Council's Armed Forces Champion, said: "We want all employers to understand the strength and wealth of skills that the armed forces community can bring along as employees. It is a great opportunity to come along and find out more and take part in our group photo with all the organisations showing their support."

There will also be a chance for businesses to learn about the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. This scheme acknowledges employers who are providing exceptional support to veterans, serving personnel, reservists and family members of those in the armed forces. Those businesses which are successful in achieving this can gain access to free training opportunities to help develop the skills of staff.

Light refreshments will be provided.
