Today, Altia announced it has become a Pledge Partner for Fortem Austalia, a not-for-profit organisation that offers first responders, and their families, mental health support, wellness activities and assists their transition into private sector roles.
Building on Altia’s long-standing relationship with law enforcement agencies throughout the world, Altia is delighted to be able to support this not-for-profit organisation which supports first responders by offering mental health support and wellness activities and by assisting first responders in their transition from roles in the public sector to the private sector.
As a Pledge Partner, Altia commits to four key things:
- Adopting at least one new strategy or process that promotes the recruitment of first responders and their families.
- Developing at least one new strategy or process that increases employment retention levels within the organisation for first responders and their families.
- Building knowledge, understanding and awareness of Fortem Australia and of the strengths and needs of first responder community.
- Considering first responders and their family members as candidates for learning, training and/or volunteering opportunities.
Rob Sinclair, CEO Altia, said:
‘We’ve been working with Fortem Australia to set up this new partnership because it so closely aligns with the values we hold – and because it gives us the chance to truly give back to the first responder community we have worked so closely with.
‘Over 10% of our own workforce is already made up of former first responders so we know, first hand, how amazing their lived experience is in creating solutions that support the impact and efficiency of first responders in the communities they serve.’
As this partnership grows, the Altia team will be taking part in webinars and events across Australia.
