Our work-life balance arrangements were reported as a positive aspect of life in the firm, as well as the strong corporate values of mutual respect and trust which the assessors felt underpinned all firm activity.

Opportunities for personal development and training, as well as the involvement of all employees in the strategic direction of the firm through initiatives such as a staff liaison group were commended.

The firm, which has strong local community ties, was also praised on its wide array of charitable and education initiatives, which the assessors felt, were strongly rooted into the firm’s business strategy.

Other examples of links to the community included the firm’s ‘Make a Difference Day’ initiative, which encourages team members to abandon their usual office surroundings and spend the day giving back to the community.
