Accomplish more with a career at HomeProtect
HomeProtect is owned and operated by Avantia Insurance Ltd. Based in Kingston-upon-Thames we are spoilt with a terrific location; stroll along the Thames river walk, take in the sights and smells of the market and browse shops galore! As well as enjoying the location our staff are part of a very active community. We run regular sports, social and charity events, including fundraising for the children’s hospice care charity Shooting Star Chase. In fact, we’re pleased to say that in a recent staff survey 90% agreed there is a good sense of community and fun here!
Our company values provide the framework within which we all interact, both internally and with our customers. They shape and influence our culture and give us all an opportunity to work towards something outside of our day to day tasks. It is important to recognise that these values, these underlying beliefs, attitudes and behaviours aren’t just words written in a company handbook that gets dusted off when a new employee joins the organisation. They need to be lived and breathed by everyone.
Why are values important?
When we are around people with whom we share common values and beliefs, we feel safer and more secure. Having a set of shared values that everyone buys into is what helps to shape a strong culture. If we are happy, we have a more positive outlook on all aspects of our lives - our environment, the people we work with, and the work we produce.
Your culture really is one of the most important things of your company, it’s who you are, it’s why customers choose you. Build a great company which you would want to do business with yourself. If you get this right, your culture is right. -Richard Branson
We also support a lot of learning and development across the business, so there’s always opportunities to progress your career with internal promotion. What’s more, we look after our team with a variety of benefits designed to make their lives a little easier and a little sweeter.
