Soldier On welcomes Synergy Group Australia as its Platinum National Ball Partner for 2021.
The National Gala Ball is a premier black-tie event attracting more than 500 attendees and VIP guests. The annual Gala Ball welcomes some of the most influential people in Defence, business and the community to raise money in support of serving and ex-serving veterans and their families.
As the event’s Platinum Partner, Synergy will contribute a total of $50,000 to the Soldier On mission.
Synergy’s partnership will allow Soldier On to deliver more of its services to a greater number of veterans and their families, enabling them to thrive in their transition from the Australian Defence Force into civilian life. This is achieved through Soldier On’s delivery of holistic services assisting individuals to build resilience, create and expand meaningful connections with family, community and employers through its health and wellbeing services, employment programs, learning opportunities and participation activities.
Synergy is one of Canberra’s largest and fastest growing consulting and contracting firms, specialising in the provision of services across Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments.
An avid supporter of Soldier On, Synergy has demonstrated its support for the veteran community through its own programs, with the implementation of a Veteran Recruitment Campaign and Veteran’s Assessment Centre which has seen the number of veterans within the organisation grow to over 10% of the growing workforce.
Synergy has also offered support to the veteran community through its ongoing partnerships with Soldier On by signing the Platinum Pledge, as well as being the Platinum Sponsor of the inaugural Golf Vet-AM.
Galia Cornish, CEO for Synergy Group, is a strong supporter of providing opportunities for veterans.
“Veterans are a fundamentally important part of our business and we really enjoy the energy they bring to Synergy. Our support of Soldier On reflects our ongoing commitment to assisting veterans and their families,” Galia said.
“Transitioning after years of dedicated service can be demanding, so creating opportunities to bridge between the Veteran – their values and beliefs, and Synergy’s values and our principles- based approach to business, is critical to providing a meaningful next step. The capacity of Veterans and their families to get on board and get on with each new challenge and opportunity has been admirable and shows the value that Veterans provide to businesses like Synergy Group,” Galia said.
Soldier On CEO, Ivan Slavich said Soldier On is thrilled to have Synergy as its 2021 Platinum National Ball Partner.
“Soldier On is extremely grateful for Synergy’s ongoing support. This partnership will not only work to assist current and ex-serving personnel and their families across the country, but it also sends a clear message that there are large organisations in our community who are proactively committed to supporting those who have served our nation,” Ivan said.
