Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that everyone in this world should be treated equally and valued as an individual. We promote and support diversity in the workplace. We do this by implementing robust measures at key stages of recruitment, selection, and the retention of employees.
Protecting our planet
We put recycling at the heart of what we do. We seek to minimise our impact on the environment and have committed to improving it in any way possible. That’s why we have developed internal good environmental and net-zero carbon practices.
Optimising employee health
A business is nothing without its people. That’s why we actively support employee well-being to help prevent stress and create positive working environments where our employees can thrive. We also provide access to impartial support and advice for employees with physical and mental health needs.
Prompt Payment to Suppliers
At Asset Disposal we believe that paying promptly shows respect to our suppliers, this is particularly important with small businesses where late payments can have negative impacts. We follow the government prompt payment code. We commit to paying suppliers on time, give clear guidance to suppliers and encourage good practice.
Pay the Living Wage
A real living wage for our employees
Asset Disposal believes staff deserve a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. That’s why we follow the living wage pay conditions as set out by the Living Wage Foundation. The living wage is based on the cost of living and aims to meet the everyday needs of our employees.
Encouraging internal development
We are commented to ensuring our employees have a voice to make suggestions and to raise issues with senior management if they should so wish. We have internal processes to facilitate this, along with regular employee satisfaction surveys.
Fair Hours and Contracts
No zero hour contracts
We believe that our employees should be secure in the knowledge that they will have both stable hours and receive a guaranteed income each month. That’s why we don’t have zero or minimal hours contracts to avoid people struggling to meet their basic needs.
Pay Fair Tax
We are proud to do our bit
We believe that all businesses have to do their bit to make the services we need are paid for all by all who use it under a fair system. We commit to being transparent with HMRC and not engaging in tax avoidance.
