A visit from the Inspector General of the Armed Forces

September 28, 2021

Inspector General of the Armed Forces (IGK) Frank van Sprang visited the Hengelo premises to speak with ex-soldiers and reservists about the interpretation of being a reservist in combination with day to day job at Thales.

The IGK stands beside the formal organizational structure and reports directly to the Minister of Defence. This position guarantees its independence. The IGK uses this to fulfill four main tasks: advising, mediating, penalty/work related visits and he ensures recognition for veterans. During his visit, he spoke to several board members and reservists and was given a factory tour. A fruitfull visit, especially because it will soon be Reservists Day at Thales in Hengelo.
