There are three tiers of award – Bronze, Silver and Gold – for employers who first pledge, then demonstrate, then advocate support to the Armed Forces Community in alignment with the Armed Forces Covenant. Before the employer is able to receive an award they must first pledge their commitment by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
