“In addition to delivering a first-class service, providing other benefits to our clients’ stakeholders, their environment and the wider community is important to us. Through our Waterman Aspen in the Community initiative, we offer all our staff one day each year to undertake voluntary or charitable work, often linked to the interests of their secondment client.”

Mark Emberton, Managing Director, Waterman Aspen

In today’s socially conscious environment, employees and customers place a premium on working for and spending their money with businesses that prioritise corporate social responsibility (CSR).

CSR is a term that has come to mean whatever a company does to give back to the community in which it has a presence. Sometimes this involves volunteering or sponsorships but can also be our commitment to a charity or some laudable effort or cause.

Through our Waterman Aspen in the Community initiative, we offer all our salaried staff one day each year to undertake voluntary or charitable work for their secondment client or community in company time. Click here to view our CSR Policy.
