Our Spectrum Digital podcast is called ‘Tomorrow’s Workplace, Today’, and this title reflects the culture we adopt across our entire organisation. We’re passionate about social and sustainable change within our company and beyond; we understand that our actions have an impact beyond our immediate business operations, and so we constantly strive to make a positive difference in the world around us. Our dedication to becoming the workplace of the future, for both employees and clients, is ultimately our greatest goal.
Inclusivity & Diversity
At Spectrum, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our values. Part of this is recognising that unique perspectives are paramount to our team’s success, and so we’re committed to promoting neurodiversity in the workplace. Our senior management team have undergone training on how to best support our neurodivergent team members, and we offer accessible and flexible accommodations.
We don’t subscribe to a traditional ‘corporate’ culture. Our workforce is made up of a diverse team of people, with a variety of life experiences and backgrounds, and everybody from our apprentices to our Directors is treated equally and fairly. We aim to maintain open and honest conversations at Spectrum, creating a supportive environment that promotes inclusion by allowing the team to speak up and have their voices heard.
Good Mental Health is Wealth
At Spectrum, we recognise that mental health is just as important as physical health. We are committed to promoting wellbeing in the workplace and beyond, and we take our responsibilities in this area very seriously. A number of our employees have trained to become mental health first aiders, receiving specialised and in-depth coaching from HSTS to recognise the early signs of mental illness. We offer single-session counselling with licensed professionals for any staff that needs that extra support, as well as run mindfulness workshops such as meditation.
Our organisation is dedicated to uplifting good causes that are close to our hearts. We’re proud sponsors of local sports teams in Hull and the East Yorkshire region, including:
Hull City FC, Hull City Ladies FC, Tigers Trust, East Midlands Motor Club, North Humberside Motor Club, Malton Motor Club, North Ferriby Football Club, Royal Yorkshire Yacht Club, Westella & Willerby FC, Kingswood Utd FC, Hessle Rangers FC, Gainsborough Trinity FC, Hull Chevrons Netball and Springhead FC.
We’re also passionate about philanthropic causes and support various charities such as Macmillan, Mind, Cat Zero, Samaritans and Child Dynamix.
Putting the Planet First
Sustainability and environmental targets are priorities for Spectrum over the next five years. Our partner Canon are pioneers in reducing the environmental impact of print, with the MFDs we supply to our clients being Energy Star Programme compliant. We’ve recently joined the Natwest Mentor Scheme to work towards an ISO 14001 accreditation, and are in the early stages of developing a plan to offset our carbon footprint.
