CBRE CONFIRMS ARMED FORCES COMMITMENT
Armed Forces Day took place on Saturday 25 June and provided a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the entire Armed Forces community; from those currently serving, to Service families, veterans and cadets. It was an important moment for the nation to honour both the historic and continuing contribution made by the UK's Armed Forces.
As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, CBRE is a proud signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant - a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly: http://bit.ly/28OGWig
The covenant’s two principles state that:
- The Armed Forces community should not face disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services
- Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most, such as the injured and the bereaved
Cliff has seen operational tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and almost twenty deployments as a reservist. He currently combines being a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Marines Reserve with being Head of CBRE’s Capital Projects team, based in London. Cliff was awarded the MBE for services to the Reserve Forces in 2013.
I take great pride in the fact that as a business we recognise the importance of the entire Armed Forces family, and the value what that brings to CBRE. I would urge more businesses to take heed, and to sign up to this commitment in order to promote wider public understanding and awareness of the vital contribution the Armed Forces makes to society.
