ADP wins silver award for the support it gives to the armed services
London, UK – 15 August 2018: ADP is to receive a silver award as part of the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme in honour of its support for the armed forces. The award will be presented at a ceremony on Wednesday, 5th September in Portsmouth at the Historic Dock Yard.
ADP has been recognised for a number of reasons, most notably signing the Armed Forces Covenant which ensures that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. Additionally, throughout 2017 and 2018 ADP hosted a number of key events in aid of this cause, such as an Insight Day for military veterans, and Armed Forces & Reserves day displays.
Commenting on the award, Jeff Phipps, Managing Director at ADP UK said: “We are delighted to have received this Silver Award. Here at ADP we are proud supporters of our Armed Forces and recognise the exceptional skills and talent of those who serve. Our goal is to help businesses around the world to find, manage and reward their most important asset; their people. It’s that fundamental sense of service that makes our partnership with the military so natural, because, whilst the context of operation is different, we share a bond of service to others and of working as a team.”
Commenting on the announcement of the 2018 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards, Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans, the Rt Hon Tobias Ellwood MP said: ““I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the Armed Forces Community. The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our Reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick and their families. We’ve seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit.”
