• Pinnacle receives award for supporting armed forces

        • Cardiff-based, the Pinnacle Group, has a received Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) ‘Silver Award’ from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for its support of the armed forces community.

          Pinnacle received the award along with 18 other Welsh employers, including local authorities and private sector employers, ranging from micro-employers to small and medium-sized enterprises based in Wales.

          Clive Hamilton, CEO of the Pinnacle Group, will be formally presented with a certificate at the 2018 Armed Forces in Wales and ERS Silver Awards Ceremony in Cardiff, in November.

          The Rt Hon Tobias Ellwood MP, Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans said, “I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the armed forces community.

          “The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our reservists, veterans, wounded, injured and sick and their families. We’ve seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the armed forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit.”

          The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme recognises those who demonstrate or advocate support to the armed forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant, a pledge from the nation that those who serve or who have served and their families, are treated fairly.

          Silver award winners must meet varied criteria, such as; employ at least one individual from the armed forces community, actively ensure that their workforce is aware of their positive policies, demonstrate support to mobilisations of reservists and provide at least five days additional leave for training.
