The RFCA for Yorkshire and the Humber will be paying tribute to some of the region’s outstanding employers at three events this Autumn.
The first event will be a special dinner in York on 18 November to recognise 17 employers who have won a Silver Award under this year’s Government’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
Companies and organisations who won a Gold Award under the scheme in 2020 and who missed out on the usual celebrations due to Covid will be invited to join the RFC A at York’s Royal Gun Salute on 15 November, followed by a lunch at the city’s Grand Hotel.
Gold Award 2021
Later in the month, the RFCA will join forces with its counterparts in the East Midlands and North West of England to stage a prestigious event at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 25 November for this year’s winners of the scheme’s Gold Awards.
Pictured above is Julie Verity, head of human resources at West Yorkshire engineering firm NG Bailey as she celebrates the company’s success in winning a Gold Award.
“All these companies and organisations provide fantastic examples of the very best in employment practices for staff who are serving as reservists or cadet forces adult volunteers or are former military,” said the RFCA’s head of engagement Phil Walton.
