Axiologik signs the Armed Forces Covenant!

Since signing the covenant, the company has been awarded the Bronze Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, demonstrating the success of its commitment to be an armed forces-friendly employer recognising the importance of reducing barriers to employment and the difference this makes to our community.

The Armed Forces Covenant, a national scheme, is a pledge to acknowledge and understand that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the community, economy and society.

The prestigious award, which recognises employers that support defence personnel encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for organisations which pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

As part of the pledge, Axiologik is fully committed to supporting members of the armed forces community, actively recruiting service leavers and embedding a 'forces-friendly' ethos across the workplace. We are also promoting the business as an armed forces-friendly organisation, supporting the employment of veterans, employing service spouses and partners and endeavouring to offer flexibility in granting leave related to a partner's deployment.

Jack Taylor, Head of Talent, commented, "We are proud to be an armed-forces friendly organisation, and to offer workplace policies aligned to our wider commitment to be a flexible and inclusive employer. Over the past few years, we have been working hard to improve our practices and procedures to support our armed forces community members. We look forward to growing this work programme in the future with the opportunity of many exciting projects for our veterans, reservists, cadets and forces families."

Axiologik has always had an open approach to career changers, particularly from the armed forces and hopes this recent award will attract more ex-services personnel who have transitioned into tech, whilst also encouraging other employers to join the scheme

Delivery Consultant Aimee Rankine joined the team recently, said “Members of the armed forces community bring valuable skills and perspectives to the workplace, and I take pride in being part of a company that acknowledges this. Without such initiatives, I would have found the transition to ‘civvy street’ much more difficult and I doubt I would have achieved the same success.”

As Axiologik marks the honour of being awarded Bronze, this is only the start of the journey as they embark on the next phase of the Covenant's work. With hopes the pledge will encourage other tech and local organisations to do the same
