RSA signs Armed Forces Covenant

RSA Insurance has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a government-backed scheme that advocates for the needs of those within the armed forces community. The scheme is designed to ensure employers create environments in which all those who serve, have served and/or have serving family members are understood, treated fairly, and supported to thrive.

The signing also marks the launch of an RSA Armed Forces Employee Resource Group, co-chaired by Ian Dawes, who currently serves as an Army Reservist Lieutenant in the Royal Corps of Signals, and Victoria Bauling, a military veteran who served six years in the Army Intelligence Corps as both a Regular and Reservist.

Ian Dawes, co-chair RSA Armed Forces ERG, Army Reservist Lieutenant, and Project Manager at RSA said: “We’re delighted to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, which acts as an important conduit between the civilian and military spheres. It marks a significant milestone in our understanding of this extended community and recognises the extraordinary contribution of those involved in military duty.

“By signing the Covenant, we’re proving our commitment to support the Armed Forces community, ensuring we have the right people in place to create ongoing guidance and policy for families, partners, veterans, and those serving. I’m proud RSA is a military friendly employer, with a supportive and enabling environment for the armed forces community.”

Peter Germain, chief executive at the Armed Forces Covenant, added: “When an organisation commits to signing the Armed Forces Covenant it speaks volumes about the value they attach to the skills, experience and character that members of the armed forces community can bring to their organisation.”
