LONDON, July 23, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The UK business of global real estate advisor, CBRE, has been awarded the Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award by the Ministry of Defence. CBRE is the first property services provider to achieve this accolade, which recognises organisations which employ and support those who serve, veterans and their families.

To win an award, organisations must provide ten extra paid days leave for Reservists and have supportive HR policies in place for veterans, Reserves, and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, as well as spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.

Organisations must also advocate the benefits of supporting those within the Armed Forces community by encouraging others to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and engage in the Employer Recognition Scheme.

Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Leo Docherty, said: “I would like to thank all the organisations who have proven their support for the Defence community during such unprecedented and challenging times. The vast range of those recognised this year demonstrates how employing the Armed Forces community makes a truly positive and beneficial impact for all employers, regardless of size, sector or location.”

We recognise that those who have served in the Armed Forces – or continue to serve in some capacity – bring valuable skillsets and ways of thinking to our industry and we are delighted that our efforts in professionally supporting this community have been recognised. CBRE’s Armed Forces Network has been integral in our journey to the Gold Award and I encourage other organisations to consider forming a similar community.

We are thrilled to have been recognised as an exemplar within our industry, and the first real estate practice to have received the ERS Gold Award. CBRE’s approach to the defence community will continue to bring real benefits to veterans, reservists and families, and to our business. Now we have the opportunity to work with and support others in our industry in stepping up their defence community activity.
