Two Team Lincolnshire ambassadors are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the Gold Employer Recognition Scheme Award for 2022!

JD2E and KryptoKloud were awarded the highest standard in the awards, which recognises organisations who pledge, demonstrate and advocate their support for the defence community. There are three tiers of award – bronze, silver and gold – for employers who advocate support to the armed forces community in alignment with the Armed Forces Covenant. 

Jon, Managing Director of JD2E said:

"Receiving the Gold ERS award is an incredible privilege and great testament to the active part all our veterans and staff play in supporting our Armed Forces,” said Jon, Managing Director of JD2E. 

“We are incredibly proud of our Forces personnel, their families, and the essential roles they perform."

We also spoke to KryptoKloud about the win. The team said:

“Our passionate support for the armed forces community runs deeply through our ethos, and to be one of only 18 organisations in the East Midlands to achieve this accolade is truly humbling.

“We will continue to strive to support armed forces personnel, both serving members and veterans. Congratulations again to all the other Gold Award 2022 recipients.”

Paul Burrows, CEO at KryptoKloud, shared the news on LinkedIn, saying:

“Great effort everyone and especially to Andy Marchant for leading on this. Fantastic achievement to get from bronze to gold in less than three years! It demonstrates our commitment to the armed forces and is reflective of the years of military service within KryptoKloud.”
