Armed Forces Covenant – Proudly supporting those who serve
“System Group is proud to sign the Covenant and recognise the contribution of those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families. Our mission is to support ex-military personnel kickstart their employment development within transport and logistics. We recognise the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military bring to System Group and the logistics sector.”
- Commercial Director at System Group, Claire Lee
In recognition of the value that serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring, System Group has pledged its support to the Armed Forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) is a promise to ensure those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives. The AFC relies on the people, communities, and businesses of the UK to actively support it in order to make a difference.
The principles in the agreement outline that no members of the Armed Forces Community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen and in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.
We hope that the pledge will inspire other organisations and businesses across the UK to sign the Armed Forces Covenant too. Follow the link to find out more: https://www.armedforcescovenant.gov.uk/
