our values and our people

Partnership, entrepreneurship, creativity, citizenship – are core to our business and the people who work for us. Read what our values mean to different employees across our business:

partnership

arvato teams in the UK and Ireland work closely with each other and with our colleagues across the globe to create integrated and international solutions. Our employees form client relationships built on mutual trust and respect, helping clients deliver high performing services to their customers and citizens.

Robert Burkitt

Contact Centre Supervisor, Public Sector, Beverley

“For me, the one thing that makes arvato stand out from other companies is the importance they place on ensuring that all members of staff have their say through our employee surveys and forums. They’re also keen for us to improve ourselves and they provide the support to make it happen.”

Alex McDougall

Team Leader, Supply Chain Solutions, Milton Keynes

“I transferred from Universal Music Group to arvato and am now a team leader responsible for client orders in our Milton Keynes distribution centre. Most of my colleagues also transferred over, so the great thing is I’m still working with my old friends from Universal and I’ve made some new ones from arvato too.”

entrepreneurship

We are a big business without the bureaucracy. We let our people think freely and act flexibly, with the entrepreneurial freedom to make decisions at a local level and take personal responsibility for their actions. This individual autonomy - unusual in a company of our size and scale – we hope you will find inspiring and we believe it’s beneficial for our clients.
