Bentley signs Armed Forces Covenant

Bentley has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a national pledge to support the Armed Forces Community.

Its ultimate ambition is to be the employer of choice for those leaving the military, by recognising military skills and qualifications in the recruitment and selection process and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support the employment of Service leavers.

In addition, the company is supporting colleagues who are members of the Reserve Forces and volunteering leaders in military cadet organisations, granting additional leave for annual training.

Emma Humphries, diversity and inclusion manager at Bentley, said: “By pledging Bentley’s support and joining the Armed Forces Covenant, we acknowledge the importance of ensuring our servicemen and women receive the respect, support, and fair treatment they deserve. It is a promise to uphold the values of unity, solidarity, and gratitude towards those who risk their lives for our safety.

“Joining the Armed Forces Covenant is not just a symbolic gesture; it is a concrete step towards creating a society that values and cherishes the sacrifices of our military personnel. It is a commitment to fostering an environment where veterans, active-duty members, and their families receive the care, recognition, and opportunities they rightfully deserve.”
