TriCIS give thanks on Armed Forces Day

Today, Saturday 26th June, is Armed Forces Day – a chance for us all to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. To mark Armed Forces Day, celebrations and events take place up and down the country starting on the 21st June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks.

Whilst this day and the many festivities give us the all the chance to demonstrate our appreciation, TriCIS has pledged its continued support to the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. In addition to this, we are proud to hold the prestigious Bronze Award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme for demonstrating our commitment to those who serve, who have served, veterans and their families.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a national commitment made between the People of the UK and Her Majesty’s Government, to those who protect our nation with honour, courage and commitment. It is a pledge that, together, we all acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

TriCIS has a strong platform when it comes to this commitment with their Head of Operations, Martin Edwards, a RAF veteran of 32 years and around a quarter of its workforce having served in the Armed Forces. We continue to build on this and plan to do our utmost to ensure that we offer fair opportunities to all service personnel in the future.

Defence Advisor for TriCIS, Ann-Marie Warner-Read says, “Having served in the Army myself, and working alongside a wider team of ex-service personnel, I am proud and delighted to work with a company who genuinely strive to meet the values set out in the Armed Forces Covenant – to treat those who serve or who have served with fairness and respect.”

Please join us this Armed Forces Day in showing appreciation for those spend their lives protecting us. From TriCIS, we thank you.
