Our Commitment to Wellbeing
We know that the wellbeing of our people engenders real business benefits and is key to supporting our strategy for growth and resilience but, fundamentally, ensuring a happy and healthy workforce is simply the right thing to do.
Our wellbeing strategy is designed to support the financial, physical and mental health of our people and includes:
What initiatives have we put in place
to enhance wellbeing?
How are we measuring our wellbeing goals?
Last year, we also set a goal to achieve a Best Companies two-star accreditation by 2023. We have achieved this a year ahead of our target, with anonymous feedback from across the firm leading to us improving – from “Very Good” to “Outstanding”.
As such, we moved from 38th to 12th in the Best mid-sized company to work for in London and from 15th to 11th in the national law firm rankings.
We also have good engagement and satisfaction scores of over 90% across the firm which is a strong foundation for all wellbeing initiatives.
We also regularly monitor our wellbeing goals by reviewing:
- Time recording and billing for fee earners
- Sickness absence figures
- Staff retention and turnover
- Employee satisfaction through annual staff survey
- Exit interviews
The governance of the firm ensures that the work of HR and the Wellbeing Leadership group is reported at Executive level and supported.
