EMCOR UK Signs Armed Forces Covenant

Ahead of Armed Forces Day which is commemorated in the United Kingdom on 25th June, EMCOR UK has signed the Armed Forces Covenant committing to fair treatment of current and former armed services personnel, and their families.

The facility services provider signed the Covenant on 20th June at the start of Armed Forces Week.

A key principle of the Covenant is providing employment support to members of the Armed Forces community. As a national facilities management service provider with clients from numerous sectors including defence, EMCOR UK is well-positioned to provide a career path for those members, including ex-service personnel.

Becoming a signatory to the Covenant is an important step for the company as it is commited to delivering social value, with its commitment re-enforcing previous commitments it has made to supporting Sustainable Development Goal 8 (which focuses on promoting decent work and economic growth by 2030), UNDG 10 (with a focus on combatting inequality) and 17 (a goal the promotes partnerships as the best means of delivering other development goals).

EMCOR UK will drive social mobility by supporting ex-service personnel who may struggle to transition to civilian life. It will also engage those transitioning that have a disability to deliver equal opportunities and tackle workforce inequality.

Keith Chanter, EMCOR UK CEO, comments: “We recognise the sacrifices that those in the Armed Forces make, and the difficulties they and their families can face when transitioning to civilian life.

“Signing the pledge is a commitment from EMCOR UK that we support veterans and wider members in gaining employment and will support them throughout their time with us.”

Dylan Wickenden, the company’s Executive Director for HR, adds: “We already have a number of colleagues who come from an Armed Forces background and have always been proud to support them and their families.”
