Mission: To take responsibility for safety, hygiene and sustainability, as the future is safer with Altro. Vision: To be the brand of choice for creating smart and stylish interior spaces that help keep people safe in their daily lives.
“WE LOVE INVENTING things,” says Altro. Based in Letchworth Garden City, the firm makes safety flooring and hygienic wall-cladding systems for the transport and construction industries.
More than half of the 370-strong workforce have been with the company for five or more years, many passing through leadership development programmes that seek to discover and promote talent internally. This culture results in individuals feeling they can make a valuable contribution to the firm’s success, an 84% positive score, and being proud to work for it (81%). Employees are at the heart of business decision-making, too, with regular initiatives such as breakfast with the directors creating a robust feedback loop for ideas and concerns.
Founded in 1919, Altro takes pride in the way its core values — safety, hygiene, sustainability — are part of day-to-day working life, and staff agree that the company is run on strong principles (81%). Everyone attends an externally run stress- management course, and line managers have the discretion to help team members adopt flexible working arrangements to accommodate their needs.
