Employer Recognition Scheme

The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support Defence and inspire other organisations to do the same.

The Employer Recognition Scheme ERS encompasses Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards and was the MoD's initiative to recognise publically the support and commitment towards Defence from UK employers and organisations. The Awards recognises employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to Defence and the Armed Forces Community and align their values with the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant

NE RFCA facilitates the presentations of Bronze Awards, organises the annual Silver Awards Ceremony and represents the North East at the ERS Gold Awards Ceremony.
