Lord-Lieutenants of Yorkshire pay tribute to top forces-friendly employers

Eight of Yorkshire’s leading forces-friendly employers have been honoured with special awards at a ceremony attended by all four of the region’s HM Lord-Lieutenants.

In a mark of the significance placed on their achievements, the presentation was the only event in the entire ceremonial calendar attended by all four of Yorkshire’s HM Lord-Lieutenants – HM Lord-Lieutenants of South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

HM Lord-Lieutenants were joined by representatives of each of the UK’s Armed Forces to honour organisations who have achieved a Silver Award in the Government’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. The award is for employers that go the extra mile to give reservists, cadet force adult volunteers and veterans a fair deal.

HM Lord-Lieutenant of West Yorkshire Ed Anderson said: “Reservists, cadet force adult volunteers and veterans make a huge contribution to businesses across the region and it’s fantastic to be able to acknowledge the support that these employers give back in return.”

The winning organisations were:

  • Bradford District Care Foundation Trust
  • Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Humberside Fire and Rescue Service
  • North Lincolnshire Council
  • Software Box Ltd (SBL)
  • Irwin Mitchell
  • VICTVS
