London-based law firm, Sharpe Pritchard, which specialises in public law and commercial matters has received a London Healthy Workplace Award from the Mayor of London’s Office.
The award, which is supported by Public Health England, recognises good practice amongst London’s employers in promoting the health and wellbeing of their staff.
The verifier was particularly complimentary about the firm’s approach to supporting employees during the Covid-19 pandemic, including through the distribution of a ‘Lockdown Bible’ – a one-stop handbook to everything employees need to be able to work from home.
Justin Mendelle, Senior Partner at Sharpe Pritchard, said: “Providing strong and effective support to our team reflects several of our core values as a firm.
“Our health and wellbeing initiatives are not only valuable in and of themselves, they also enable us to provide a better service to our clients.
“Lawyers who are well looked after are likely to be in a better position to provide quality legal advice to clients than those that are not.
“It is great that our efforts have been recognised in this way and we are pleased to have been granted the London Health Workplace Award.”
Sharpe Pritchard’s London Healthy Workplace Award will remain valid for the next four years and the firm will be required to provide a brief update annually.
