The RFCA’s employer engagement team are to host a series of online workshops to support businesses and organisations aiming for awards under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).
The workshops are to help employers aiming for a Silver or Gold Award in the 2023 ERS scheme, giving them practical tips on how to meet the essential criteria for one of the prestigious awards.

Knowledge and support
Pauline King said: “The purpose of the workshops is to give employers the knowledge and support they need to progress to the next level of the ERS scheme which recognises organisations who pledge, demonstrate and advocate their support for the armed forces community.
The awards programme window will open in the new year and we’re keen to build on the success of the 2022 awards”.
The Zoom events are:
Tuesday 10 January – for Armed Forces Covenant holders to progress to a Bronze Award
Wednesday 11 January – for Bronze Award winners to progress to Silver
Thursday 12 January – for Silver Award winners wishing to progress to Gold
