John Pipe International Have Signed The Armed Forces Covenant

Signing the Armed Forces Covenant

John Pipe are proud to have recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant – a promise to treat those who have served in the forces fairly. We have received the bronze award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) and commit to honouring the Armed Forces Covenant and supporting the Armed Forces Community.  Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular, Reserve, or in the past, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services (including the families of those who served). We believe that special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given the most such as the injured and/or the bereaved. This obligation involves the whole of society: it includes voluntary and charitable bodies, private organisations, and the actions of individuals in supporting the Armed Forces. Recognising those who have performed military duty unites the country and demonstrates the value of their contribution.

Principles of the Armed Forces Covenant

We will do our best at John Pipe to follow the important rules of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are the following:

  • No member of the Armed Forces Community should face a disadvantage in the public and commercial services compared to any other citizen.
  • In some circumstances, special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.

Demonstrating our Commitment

We recognise the value that personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business and to our country. Due to this, we will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by:

  • Promoting the Armed Forces
  • Recognising military skills and qualifications in our recruitment and selection process.
  • Supporting our employees who are already members of the Reserve Force.
  • Supporting our employees who are volunteer leaders in military cadet organisations.
  • Supporting Armed Forces Day, Reserves Day, the Poppy Appeal Day, and Remembrance activities
  • Supporting staff who volunteer to assist with Armed Forces charities fundraising.

We are proud to say that we will publicise these commitments through our literature and/or on our website, which sets out how we will seek to honour them. We will invite feedback from the service community and our customers on how we are doing.
