creating a fairer and more inclusive culture
The Aster Way
The Aster Way is not the start of something new, it’s part of our journey to move towards creating a fairer and more inclusive culture – something we’ve been working towards for the last four years.
The Way We Work project marked the beginning of our cultural transformation where we began work around lots of things we see across the business today, including a move towards more flexibility for colleagues and nicer spaces to work in. Then, last year we undertook some work with the Corporate Rebels to begin challenging some of the ways in which we work.
The Aster Way has been developed as the next stage in this journey and takes the Corporate Rebels themes but interprets them in ways which will work for our business. It provides colleagues with clear boundaries around how we’ll all expect to work moving forwards while still giving colleagues the freedom and trust that we know is needed to make us an even more successful business.
It includes several broad themes from supportive leadership, freedom and trust, transparency and talent to networked teams, experimentation and adaptation.
Many of you without even realising it are already bringing to life The Aster Way – from breaking down barriers, having open and honest conversations with each other and putting safety first. The Aster Way is already a big part of the way we already do things here at Aster and we hope it will support our colleagues as we continue our culture change.
