The award acknowledges that Aggregate Industries treats members of the Armed Forces fairly as part of its recruitment policies. Aggregate industries also actively ensures its workforce is aware of  positive policies for veterans, Reserves, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, and spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces - another part of the criteria that must be met to receive the award.

Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries, said: “At Aggregate Industries we are delighted with our achievement as an Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award winner and we will continue our efforts to further improve our performance.

“We pledge to treat all those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families fairly and we are proud signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant. Those brave men and women have done their duty for this great nation so it is now our duty to make sure they are given the opportunity to bring their invaluable skills and expertise to our organisation.”

Aggregate Industries has a proud track record of supporting the Armed Forces, having signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2018 and cementing its commitment to recognising the unique skill set that Forces personnel have to offer while combating the disadvantages they may face.

Cat Suckling, the Ministry of Defence’s Assistant Regional Employer Engagement Director for the East Midlands, said: “I am delighted that Aggregate Industries numbers amongst the 31 employers in the region to achieve Silver ERS awards this year. Aggregate Industries have demonstrated their commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community with concrete, actionable policies and we look forward to working together to develop this in the future.”
