We are proud to say we have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. The armed forces are important to us, with personal relationships with current and former service men and women, and we are pleased we can honour them in this way.
The Armed Forces Covenant is, in short, a promise from the nation that those who have or are serving our country, and their families, will be treated fairly. It provides a mechanism through which businesses, local authorities, charities and community organisations can show their support.
At DeNove, we have not only committed to upholding the covenants key principles, including the acknowledgement that special treatment may be required, but we have also pledged to demonstrate our commitment further. We will:
- Promote that we are an armed forces friendly organisation;
- Support the employment of veterans, spouses and partners;
- Offer flexibility when granting leave surrounding deployment;
- Actively support staff members who choose are members of the Reserve forces.
The very nature of serving in the Armed Forces is turbulent, necessitating long absences and compromises. It is the least we can do to pledge to accommodate the nature of these difficulties, allow families as much time together as is possible, and make sure former service men and women are not only to transition into employment, but are given a wealth of opportunities to do so.
