Our culture and values
As an individual, you’re one of a kind. Together, we’re a community.
Anchor builds communities of older people who have the opportunity to live their lives in the way they want. We also build a community of highly committed and talented people who create welcoming, supportive environments where residents can thrive.
Our communities are based on our ARCH values
Our culture is all about supporting the individuals who make up our communities. We do this in so many different ways…
Supporting carers, supporting you
As an organisation that cares for and supports so many, we value carers and understand the challenges faced by people that care for others at home. That’s why we’re proud to be an employer that offers the flexibility and support you need to balance your career and responsibilities as a carer.
- An inclusive recruitment process
- Flexible working
- Carer-friendly policies
- Listening & Acting
Coaching you to develop
We understand that progression and development is important to colleagues. Through coaching we are encouraged to identify solutions to in turn increase confidence, create high performance, and encourage progression generating talent for the future.
Committed to supporting your mental health
We understand the importance of supporting the wellbeing and mental health of everyone working with us. We’ve signed up to the Mental Health at Work Commitment, a framework based on research from UK employers and mental health experts, to access a range of cutting edge resources and continually improve the support we offer all colleagues.
Celebrating diversity, celebrating you
Anchor is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We aim to celebrate diversity and inclusion in all that we do, as we know that the more diverse our colleagues are, the better care and support we can give to our residents and each other.
To ensure we are constantly listening, consulting and learning from experience, we are proud to have an LGBT+ resident group for our customers, and also Disability, LGBT+ and race and ethnicity colleague networks. These work closely with the organisation to celebrate diversity, address concerns, review policy and practice and empower their members. We also have an Inclusive Ambassador network to allow all colleagues to be part of promoting diversity and to be an ally to others.
We are a member of Inclusive Employers, a Stonewall Diversity Champion and a signatory to the Care Leaver Covenant and HouseProud Pledge schemes.
