MGS Ltd, a UK based manufacturer and specialist in the installation, service and repair of Aluminium, Automatic Door and Entrance systems, has signed the Armed Forces Covenant to register formal support for the Armed Services, and recognise the value and contribution they bring to our business and country.
The Armed Forces Covenant ensures that the armed force community and their families will not face discrimination or disadvantage compared to other citizens.
By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, MGS has committed, through its influence as a business and employer, to show respect and support for those in Service and their families, including members of the Reserve Forces, veterans and leavers, showing appreciation of their benefit to the workforce and their specific needs.
Managing Director Jason Pease, served in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers at the start of his career, hence this subject is one which is very close to our hearts, and we are delighted to be able to support.
As an Armed Forces-friendly organisation, MGS reviewed internal recruitment and employment policies to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant and ensure the Armed Forces Community will not be disadvantaged, whilst recognising that in some cases special treatment is required.
MGS has pledged to provide support to employees and their spouses who are members of the Armed Forces, the Reserve Forces, military cadet and other voluntary organisations, in specific ways, such as flexibility in granting leave before deployment, provision of additional paid/unpaid leave to attend training, courses and events, and encouraging volunteering.
