Corporate Social Responsibility
We want to make the world a better place, but we recognise different people have different priorities. So everyone who joins Aristar is asked to choose a UK based charity to which we make regular donations on their behalf. We currently support the following charities in this scheme: Cancer Research, Home-Start, Motor Neurone Disease Association, National Deaf Children’s Society and Save-the-Children. We even sponsor a puppy through Hearing Dogs!
The Aristar team also take part in fundraising events throughout the year, including our annual Reverse Advent Calendar for the Guildford night shelter Number Five Project.
Recent events have included a water fight in aid of Cystic Fibrosis and a fire walk to raise money for our local hospital.
We also provide pro-bono financial accounting support to OPERA Global Youth Foundation - OPERA's #thrive fund helps empower disadvantaged young people to #thrive not just survive by providing practical and financial support when they enter the workplace. OPERA is solely funded from donations from the recruitment industry.
Aristar team members recently endured a Bush Tucker Trial to raise funds for OPERA. You can watch the video below - it's a beauty!
We aim reduce our impact on the environment with a range of measures including encouraging team members to minimise printing, to use Video Conferencing and to recycle paper, packaging and toner cartridges.
