A message to colleagues from our CEO, Brendan Brown
Today the flag over HRI flies at half-mast. Our Queen was admired, respected and loved across the world. She pledged to serve her country at the start of her reign and did so for the rest of her life. Only on Tuesday was she pictured, still carrying out her duty, receiving our new Prime Minister at Balmoral.
She’s been a constant throughout all our lives and this news will have an enormous impact on the country and many of us here at work. Overnight the news has been filled with people remembering and paying tribute and you may also be feeling a sense of loss personally. It may touch on our own stories where we have lost family and loved ones and so you may now be feeling the need for extra support and understanding. If that is you, then please contact our colleagues in Workforce Wellbeing who can offer confidential, emotional support at this time.
Our condolences go to the Royal Family and our thoughts are with everyone who loved her today. We’ll share details of the national response and period of mourning as they are confirmed over the coming days.
If you'd like to leave a message of condolence you can do so here.
