Programme Experience – our biggest transformation yet

Programme Experience is our biggest and most exciting transformation yet. It brings together all the transformation going on across the business under one umbrella.

Our development – the future

Despite the initial impact of the lockdown on the housing market, most sites have now reopened with safety measures in place to protect workers. In the next year we plan to build 834 affordable and 103 open market homes. To help us achieve this, we’re working hard to create new partnerships and further leverage those already in place.

Being a diverse and inclusive employer

The Aster Offer is all about improving the experience of working at Aster, enabling our people to be the best they can be at work and creating a fairer and more inclusive culture. We know that to be a really good employer there are some very basic things we need to have in place and feeling comfortable at work and being treated fairly are important parts of getting those basics right.

Introducing Inc

Under the Aster Foundation, we’ve been busy preparing for a new project aimed at tackling some of the biggest challenges faced by local communities. We want to tackle social challenges such as homelessness, financial inequality and unemployment in a different way to anyone else in the housing sector and in a way where we will have the greatest impact – through our new social incubator, inc.

Shaping the future of customer experience

With Covid-19 acting as a catalyst to further accelerate our business transformation, we're using the opportunity to make sure we can respond to rapidly changing customer expectations and so that we come back better and stronger than before.

Our new Charity of the Year

Following a year of fundraising for our last Charity of the Year, Cancer Research UK, our colleagues have chosen to support Dementia UK following a business wide vote.
