Giving Something Back

100% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Aspect Capital work with a company called the Access Project. They are a charity who connect GCSE and A-Level students in London with people who can give them one on one tutoring for an hour a week. Aspect have about six people who regularly provide Maths and Science support to students from the King Solomon Academy on the Edgware Road. Their staff also regularly volunteer to help out with wrapping presents, serving food and manning stalls at St John's Hospice's Christmas and Summer fayres. Aspect Capital and it's employees raise money for a number of charities annually and on an ad-hoc basis. Charities that they have raised money for this year include Access Project, Sands, St John's Wood Hospice and the British Lung Foundation to name just a few. After a company survey about charity the company found that employees were particularly interested in raising money for medical research and so they company set out to donate to the Francis Crick Institute, a Cancer Research centre in near their offices in London.

My Team

98% of staff agreed

People in my team go out of their way to help me

Although the senior management team are always looking to meet the business goals, they don't compromise the corporate values in order to achieve them. This is regularly demonstrated, whether it be not hiring someone who wouldn't fit with the values of Aspect, doing day trips to far-flung destinations to help out a member of the Sales team at a particularly challenging meeting or getting involved in any of the community and charity events. Aspect's Board members regularly sit in the Staff Hub to have lunch with the wider company and ensure they are listening to issues and they each host two Director Breakfasts every year, these breakfasts are designed to provide an opportunity for staff to ask questions in a comfortable environment. There are usually around 10 attendees. The CTO, Anthony, randomly selects support tasks to take on in order to help out the IT team when they're busy and keep his skills fresh. Anthony has an open door policy, he chairs the weekly Company meeting, gives quarterly updates on progress against the business plan to the whole company and endeavours to introduce himself to new joiners as soon after they start work at Aspect. They also rope in him to push the beer trolley round the office a couple of times a year.
