We are delighted to have received the bronze award, acknowledging that Aspris is a forces friendly employer.
This is a voluntary pledge, which involves Aspris providing work opportunities for those who may need to relocate throughout their career due to their partner’s military stationing, along with providing support to veterans and reservists, who may need additional support from their employer.
Aspris wants to ensure that members of the armed forces community are treated respectfully, offering a supportive work environment.
Louise Watts, Group HR Director at Aspris, said:
“We are delighted to be assigned the bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant, representing our first steps in giving back to those who have chosen to serve and protect us.
“Supporting this community is something close to my heart as someone who grew up in a forces family, and I’m proud to support others and create a welcoming community here at Aspris.”
As part of the covenant, Aspris guarantees interviews for service personnel as they transition into civilian life and has a forum called Aspris Allies, in which colleagues can connect, share resources and celebrate our colleagues who are serving, have served, or have family in the armed forces.
Kylie Cheston, Head of Central HR at Aspris, will be leading this initiative for Aspris, and said:
“Setting up the Aspris Allies community is something close to my heart as a military wife and cadet forces volunteer.
“I’m really proud that Aspris is supporting the wider military community and their families with their careers and I’m looking forward to talking with colleagues who are part of this group.”
We continue to increase the support we offer as we work towards the silver award, and welcome those in the armed forces community to get in touch if they would like to work with us.
