Uniform to Work Day is on Wednesday 25th June and is an opportunity for Reservists to promote the Reserves and recognise Reservists and the roles they play both in their communities and work places and in their military service.
By wearing their uniform to work, Reservists will demonstrate visibly their dual roles.
Within the MOD, it is an opportunity for Regulars as well as Reservists to wear their uniform to work and to recognise the role the Reserve Forces play in both the community and the Armed Forces. The event forms part of Armed Forces Day, which this year takes place on Saturday 28 June.
Uniform to Work Day provides an opportunity to recognise the significant contribution and support provided by the families and employers of Reservists. Reservists and their employers are encouraged to get involved and take pride in the achievements of Reservists.
Reservists are encouraged to wear their uniform to their civilian place of work on Wednesday 25 June and should notify their line manager beforehand to ensure there are no objections and that this does not impinge upon their civilian role.
Employers are being asked to support Uniform to Work Day as the contribution from employers is crucial to the campaign; it is also an opportunity to recognise their significant contribution and support. Reservists can inform their employers of Uniform to Work Day and encourage their engagement by getting in touch below.
