Network Rail, alongside 32 other organisations, received its award at a presentation hosted by the Secretary of State for Defence, Sir Michael Fallon, on Monday 9 October at the Imperial War Museum.
Network Rail has a long tradition of supporting our armed forces and in employing ex-service personnel and reserve staff. There are plenty of similarities between Network Rail and the Armed forces – the challenges and pressures, where every day is different, requiring a professional can-do attitude and strong teamwork ethos.
A large number of our workforce come from an Armed Forces background and have thrived in our organisation providing the skills that are critical to our Railway Upgrade Plan and helping us to build a bigger, better railway for Britain.
We are extremely proud to have received this recognition of our work and continued commitment to support the Armed Forces community.”
