In October 2018, the Road Haulage Association signed the Armed Forces Covenant – a promise by the nation to those who serve. It declares that we as an organisation will do all we can to ensure that they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.
The RHA has now been awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award in recognition of its ongoing work and continued commitment to supporting the recruitment of the armed forces community and their families.
Commenting, RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “I am both proud and delighted that the RHA has been awarded this accolade. It recognises our work as an employer of ex-members of the armed forces, our collaboration with Care after Combat and our continuing work with Skills for Logistics.”
