“Techmodal is absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the Silver Employer Recognition Scheme by Defence Relationship Management,” she said. “As a serving Reservist and the People lead in the business, I’m delighted that we are able to support our serving and Veteran colleagues.
“Our people are what make our business, and through our current and future initiatives we are looking forward to continuing our support for the Armed Forces community.”
Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Johnny Mercer, said: “Veterans make a huge contribution to businesses across the country and it’s fantastic to see a record-breaking number of organisations recognised for their support.
“We’re working closely with businesses to help them further understand the huge value that veterans, reservists and military spouses can bring to their organisation.”
ERS award holders include Defence sector giants Thales UK, Babcock and BAE Systems.
Techmodal Director Gareth Vaughan said: “We see huge benefits from the perspective our reservist and veteran employees bring to our business and we are always delighted to be able to support the Service charities which do a fantastic job looking after them when they complete their service.”
