Aquila is awarded with the Corporate Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award
Aquila – Air Traffic Management Services (ATMS) has been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award. This is great news for the company which was awarded the Bronze level Award shortly after signing up to the Armed Forces Covenant in October 2017.
The Corporate Covenant is a UK Government initiative which encourages UK businesses to employ and support ex- service and serving men and women.
The Review Body responsible for making the award recognised that Aquila, while still a very young company, had already shown an outstanding commitment to its Reservists and Veterans alike.
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.”
Mike Stoller, CEO of Aquila ATMS said “I am delighted that Aquila has been able to reach Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award Status building on our bronze award last year. As a company we are very proud to be able to support to those who are serving, or have served, in the military and this will continue to be a very important part of what we are about as an organisation."
