Impellam signs Armed Forces Covenant

Impellam Group are proud to have recently signed the UK Armed Forces Covenant. This covenant is a commitment from the group to support and treat the Armed Forces Community with fairness and respect.

Our CEO Global Managed Services, Simon Blockley said of the signing: ‘At a brand level, Carbon60, Lorien, Comensura and Guidant Global are already signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant. By elevating this support to the Group level, we will be able to have a bigger impact on the Military community through a louder unified Impellam voice. Not only ensuring Impellam supports and treats the Armed Forces Community with fairness and respect but by influencing our extensive client base to do the same.’ 

The signing was organised by IM Military, Impellam’s dedicated employee-led Business Resource Group for veterans. The signing allowed Impellam to show their commitment in continuing work towards supporting veterans across all sectors.

Creating an inclusive culture built on trust is at core of what makes us successful here at Impellam; one which embraces diversity both inside and outside our organisation – whether it be gender identity or military background – everyone should feel accepted without judgement or bias regardless their circumstances or beliefs so they can reach their full potential in life. We look forward to building on these initiatives by providing greater impact for those who served in defence sector.

What is the Armed Force Covenant?

Put simply, it is a promise from the nation to ensure that those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families (known generally as the armed forces community), are treated fairly.

Signing the covenant means that a business is committed to supporting the armed forces community by recognising the value that serving personnel, veterans and military families contribute to our businesses and our communities.

The Armed Forces Covenant currently has over 9600 signatories. They represent UK PLC, coving all sectors, and include major corporations, charities, NHS trusts, universities, police forces, and SMEs. From a business perspective, it is a commitment to ensuring that no member of the armed forces community suffers a commercial disadvantage because of their service.
