Some of the staff from the Punter Southall offices discuss what they are working on and why they chose Punter Southall Aspire.
Punter Southall Aspire provides the option to work flexibly to our staff.
Here's what our employees have to say:
“As someone who lives with both physical and mental health issues, the ability to work flexibly is of huge value to me. Working from home occasionally allows me to keep on top of my workload, whilst avoiding the stresses of a commute. As a result, I feel trusted and valued as an employee.”
“I have an accommodating and forward-thinking employer in Punter Southall Aspire… as an older employee the option to work from home is a godsend and, I feel, improves my performance along with my mental and physical health.”
“My manager trusts me to work from home as and when I need to, and having this option available is so important to me. I live and work in a busy city. The ability to work flexibly gives me a break from constantly commuting, stops me from getting worn out, and helps me achieve a healthy work/life balance.”
“As a parent of a young child, working from home is invaluable. I am a big believer that flexible working has a beneficial impact on employees’ mental health and wellbeing.”

Lord Mayor’s City Giving Day
We were very pleased to get involved with the Lord Mayor’s City Giving Day for the first time in 2018, and again in 2019. It was great to see so many of our London team taking on challenges like time-pressured cycling, or getting stuck into baking new recipes!
CEO Steve Butler commented: ‘We were very pleased to get involved with the Lord Mayor’s City Giving Day for the first time this year, and it’s been great to see so many of our Leadenhall team taking on challenges like time-pressured cycling, or getting stuck into baking new recipes! We’re looking forward to taking part in next year’s CGD already, and raising funds for the charities the Lord Mayor’s Appeal supports.’

York get baking for Macmillan
Friday 28th September was the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Each year, Macmillan asks people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to the charity to assist with their research and support.
With last year’s coffee morning having raised over £27 million nationally, Punter Southall Aspire’s York office wanted to try and help make this year’s total even higher!
Donations of delicious baked goods were provided by all and sundry and the grand total at the end of the day was £48.50
Commenting on the fundraising, York-based Principal Caroline Gains said: ‘We love taking part in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning each year and knowing that we’re helping raise much-needed money to support everything that Macmillan does. This year’s cakes were a particularly tasty bunch and the winner of the unofficial bake-off competition was a Forest Fruits cake...I’m looking forward to next year’s selection already!’
