For employees who are members of the Reserve forces, Peak Scientific will support their training and deployment wherever possible by offering one extra week of leave per annum. . Jonathan Golby, Peak Scientific CEO, said: “At Peak we recognise the value Armed Forces Serving Personnel, Veterans and military families contribute to our business, and to the UK where we are based. We feel it is our duty to support these individuals wherever we can, which is why we have committed to the Armed Forces Covenant.’
Peak Scientific will actively participate in Armed Forces Day, which takes place on the last Saturday in June each year, by supporting staff in wearing their Service uniforms or by other means of expressing support.
