HOUSTON – (September 18, 2019) – KBR (NYSE: KBR) is proud to announce that its unwavering commitment to supporting military reservist and veteran employees in the UK has been recognized at the highest level by the UK Ministry of Defence.

As a supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant since 2014, KBR has continually strived to improve the support it offers employees who currently serve or have served in the British Armed Forces. This commitment was formally recognized with a Gold Award as part of the Covenant’s Employer Recognition Scheme, building on the Silver Award previously held.

“These awards recognize the outstanding support for our armed forces from employers across Britain and I would like to thank and congratulate each and every one,” said Ben Wallace, UK Secretary of State during his announcement of the Gold Award status winners.

“This is a truly fantastic achievement showing our commitment to the Covenant – an important element in our wider support of the armed forces,” said Andrew Barrie, KBR President Government Solutions EMEA. “We recognize the enormous contribution and added benefit that reservists, veterans and their loved ones bring to our already diverse and dedicated workforce.”

KBR’s Government Solutions EMEA business now employs over 150 reservists, veterans or military spouse/partners. Earlier this year the business formed the Armed Forces Network (AFN) to support KBR’s Covenant pledges. Employees, leading in multiple areas, volunteer their time to support our wider business to further advance recruiting and career development experiences for colleagues from the military community.
