At Aress we believe that it is not only what we do that is important but how we do it – both in and outside of the work environment. As a company and as individuals we all take responsibility for our actions and are accountable for their consequences. But the tone is set by the corporate ethos - as expressed by Aress’ top management - and we encourage our employees to express our values in their actions.
Aress is a major employer and a contributor to the knowledge economy in its native Nasik. But the company sees its corporate responsibility as being greater than this and is involved in both local and national initiatives to enrich the lives of those whose lives are more challenging than most. From giving free weekend tennis and cricket workshops to inner-city children to providing meals to 2,500 residents of a leprosy community in north-eastern Maharashtra (see inset) we try to play our part.
Initiative in the area of social responsibility is actively encouraged within Aress and our staff are individually involved in a variety of worthy causes – to the extent that in 2014, 65 man-days of voluntary work was given to charitable projects. A few examples can be found here.
