ASB Talent Sourcing Manager Mark Sumner discusses what makes us different from other employers.
“What is it like working at ASB?”
I get asked this question a lot from potential employees, customers, friends and family; and the simple one word answer is always “awesome!”, I love working for an innovative brand that values its employees and customers.
Our unique culture is one of the things that makes ASB different. At the heart of ASB is a belief in the potential of our customers, communities, and each other. Everything we do is about creating a better future for New Zealanders. ASB people get the opportunity to support the community and volunteer to assist a multitude of ASB partners including the Starship Foundation, St John and Coastguard. ASB’s sponsorship of events such as Chinese New Year Lantern Festival, Polyfest and Matariki give ASB people the opportunity to immerse themselves in supporting New Zealand’s diverse culture.
At ASB, the focus on giving back to the community is highlighted by our Charity Choice programme which gives every ASB person the opportunity to fundraise for any registered New Zealand charity,and have these donations matched by ASB.
Innovation is a key driver for people who are looking to become a part of the ASB family, and we have a long history of innovation in technology. We’ve celebrated success with a number of firsts - we were the first bank to open a virtual branch on Facebook, the first New Zealand bank to offer a banking app across Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices, and the first New Zealand bank to offer payments through Facebook.
At ASB we care about our people and aim to provide safe, healthy, and inspiring work environments. Our new home, ASB North Wharf, has been designed to promote a collaborative environment and a sense of well-being as a priority for our people and incorporates the latest technology and sustainability features. When our people move in to ASB North Wharf they will be working in one of the most advanced buildings in Australasia.
At ASB we currently offer staff banking and insurance packages (including discounted home loan rates) plus health and well-being programs ensuring our people are happy and healthy both at work and home. We also provide significant discounts with wide range of retailers across New Zealand.
