The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce will be marking Remembrance Day with an award recognising their support for the Armed Forces.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire other organisations to do the same.
GBCC received a Silver Award in recognition of their efforts.
Chief executive Paul Faulkner said: “We are honoured to have received a Silver Award in recognition of our work with the armed forces and Chamber patron the West Midlands Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association (WMRFCA).
“The British Armed Forces work with and employ some of the best and brightest leadership talent in the country.
“While Remembrance Day marks the sacrifice made by service men and women, we are also passionate about working with reservists, current and former armed forces personnel and the benefits these relationships can bring businesses.
“I would encourage everyone reading this to find out more about how working with the WMRFCA can benefit your business as well as supporting the Armed Forces.”
The Chambers are holding an event with the WMRFCA on 28 November (2.30pm to 4pm) at Park Regis Birmingham.
The event will provide an opportunity for members of the business community to join representatives from the Armed Forces and the WMRFA for afternoon tea, to network and learn how defence and businesses can work together.
