Bronze Award holders seek to promote an Armed Forces friendly position and are open to employing Reservists and supporting their training and mobilisation commitments.
The Company has made a commitment to support the Armed Forces community and recognise the contribution to society and business made by serving, reservist and veteran military personnel. As an Armed Forces friendly organisation, the Company has pledged to promote a recruitment pathway for service personnel, their spouses and partners, ensuring that no member of the Armed Forces faces a disadvantage in seeking employment. The company also recognises that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate and has promised support, including special leave and deployment, for reservists and leaders of military cadet organisations.
Karen Winfield, UK HR Director, Konecranes Demag UK Ltd, stated: “We are extremely proud to receive the Bronze Award. There is a strong synergy between the training and education programmes provided to engineers in the Armed Forces and the skill sets required by lifting equipment Service Technicians. As such, ex-military personnel represent a large pool of talent from which we can recruit for our national network of after-sales’ support services.”
