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.

For many, maintaining a healthy work-life balance is difficult which is why for some time we’ve promoted a culture where working from home, under the hours that work for the individual is the norm. It’s about colleagues finding a way to make it work for them.

To help us ensure we also create an environment where diversity is welcomed and celebrated we’ve developed a set of principles for all our colleagues to work to and have a programme of work to help us ensure we understand differences across our colleagues and customers. This includes a new LGBTQ+ network.

Most recently we also took part in this year’s National Inclusion Week, running a week-long programme of webinars and initiatives to continue the conversation and help us all to take steps towards being a more diverse and inclusive organisation.
