MPCT attend the Armed Forces Covenant, Employer Recognition Scheme Awards

The Armed Forces Covenant, Employer Recognition Scheme Awards was presented on Tuesday 12th November 2019 at the National Army Museum in London.

On the evening Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Marvin (Manny) Manfred – Chair of MLT and Jonathan Poyner – Patron MPCT were hosted by Brig Harrington and Ben Onions.  MPCT were nominated to pick up the ERS Gold Award from Chief of Defence Staff General Sir Nicholas Patrick Carter KCB CBE DSO ADC Gen in the Atrium.

The Ministry of Defence has awarded MPCT a Gold Award for the Employer Recognition Scheme to celebrate our business’ pledge to support the UK’s Armed Forces.

MPCT is one of only 29 SMEs receiving gold awards across the country.

On behalf of Huw Lewis CEO, Manny said of this award

“As a team we are honoured to receive the Armed Forces Covenant, Employee Recognition Scheme Gold Award for our commitment to helping current and former members of the armed forces.

“For us this award recognises not just what the business has done for those who have served, but also what they have done for us.

“Our business demonstrates every day that employing veterans works. We are very grateful for the invaluable contribution they have made.”

The Gold Award is the highest accolade given to employers who demonstrate forces-friendly credentials through a rigorous application process, adjusting human resources policies to allow flexibility for reservists and supporting individuals transitioning out of the armed forces into a new career.
