Impact

ASB seeks to consider the impact of our corporate and investment-level operations on the well-being of our tenants, employees, contractors, and the communities in which our investment activity serves.

OUR GOALS

Promote tenant and resident engagement events including donation drives and community-building events


Provide amenities and spaces that support tenant and resident health and well-being where possible


Pursue building certifications in recognition of health and well-being attributes at certain properties


Through support of charitable organizations give back to the community to help those in need


Ensure the employment of highly trained, skilled workers from the construction industry, who are paid fair wages and have safe living and working conditions through ASB’s responsible contractor policy

Tenant Engagement, Health & Wellness


ASB utilizes tenant engagement and surveys from time to time to gauge satisfaction levels and identify issues to address with the aim of ensuring high levels of retention. In addition, we have conducted tenant satisfaction surveys to track tenant satisfaction and engagement at certain properties.

Additionally, we have launched a number of initiatives to address tenant health and wellness, pursuing applicable certifications where possible, such as Fitwel and WELL Building Standard. 

IMPROVING INDOOR AIR QUALITY

We currently have an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) program focused on select office and mid-to-high-rise multifamily assets across our Allegiance Fund portfolio — timely during the Covid-19 pandemic. The program included third-party measurements and internal review.

EMPLOYEES

The ASB team is a diverse group of individuals that enjoy professional benefits, including competitive pay, access to health, dental, and vision care, disability and life insurance coverage, plus paid time off. Employees are encouraged to take an active part in managing their careers and growth within the organization.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

As a leader in the institutional real estate marketplace, we recognize the importance of promoting diversity and equality within all facets of our organization. The ASB Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative’s purpose is to foster an environment that seeks to recognize employees’ unique skillsets and strives to ensure that they have equal opportunity to grow and advance in an evolving workplace. As part of our DEI program, we have partnered with the following organizations:

SUPPLIERS & CONTRACTORS

We believe one of the more impactful policies employed by ASB in pursuit of social engagement is its responsible contractor policy.  This policy seeks to promote responsible investing through engagement of signatory contractors ensuring the employment of highly trained skilled workers from the construction industry that are paid fair wages and have safe living and working conditions.

ASB: GIVING BACK

ASB wants to give back to the community to help those in need. We strive to make a positive, impactful change and support a wide variety of socially responsible organizations. Fostering a corporate culture of giving, the company has created a volunteer committee, ASB in Action, which aims to organize fundraising events that give back to the communities where we operate. In addition, all employees are given five volunteer days per year.
