Social value

Waterman Aspen in the Community

“As well as delivering a first-class service, we want to leave a legacy. Providing further benefits to our clients, their environment and wider community is important to us. Through our Waterman Aspen in the Community initiative, we offer everyone one day each year to carry out voluntary or charitable work, often linked to the interests of their secondment client.”

Mark Emberton, Managing Director, Waterman Aspen

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has come to mean whatever a company does to give back to the community – and we take that responsibility seriously.

With a team of hundreds of engineers, designers and project managers, armed with a huge range of technical skills, we know we can really make a positive difference to our communities.

That’s what the Waterman Aspen in the Community initiative is all about – all of our salaried colleagues are given a day per year to get involved with a project which is important to them, their client or community.

In recent years, our people have helped restore woodlands, rivers and canals… refurbish community buildings and help at homeless shelters… as well as using their specialist skills, such as designing signs for a charity event.

Enthusiastic Waterman Aspen colleagues play an integral part in thriving projects all over the UK, creating a better environment and giving back to their communities.
