DESIblitz.com Receives the Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS)
DESIblitz.com is proud to announce that they have received the prestigious Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) from the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme itself was launched in 2014, by then Prime Minister David Cameron. The scheme is in place to recognise organisations, such as DESIblitz.com, who pledge, display and promote their support for the Defence and the Armed Forces community.
This community includes but not limited to the Reserves, Service Leaders, Cadets, Veterans of the Armed Forces, wounded individuals, injured and/or unwell individuals, Military partners or spouses and their families.
Additionally, the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme encourages employers to show their support for defence and inspire other individuals to follow suit.
Specifically, the Bronze Award for this brilliant scheme recognises how the holders, seek to promote an Armed Forces friendly position. They are open willingly to employ Reservists, ensuring they support their training and any mobilisation commitments.
The holders of the Bronze Award are self-nominated by their employers. They pledge their aim to assist Defence, ensuring they take a positive approach towards Reservists who are active or potential employees.
Indi Deol, Managing and Advertising Director of DESIblitz.com expresses his delight towards receiving the Bronze Award and appreciation for the Armed Forces community, stating:
“We are very pleased to have been awarded the bronze award and to be recognised for the support we have provided to the armed forces community.
“Asians made huge contributions in both first and second world wars and were posted on the front lines during the conflicts.
“It’s also not widely known that Indians formed the largest volunteer armies with 1.5 million in WWI and 2.5 million in WWII. Thousands made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives.
“Therefore by trying to play our small part in supporting the MOD through this scheme, we can only help to ensure that our ancestor’s sacrifices and memories are not forgotten.”
