We have a welcoming, approachable and supportive environment, which rewards and recognises individual contributions along with those of our teams across the business – whether you’re delivering legal advice or providing operational support.
We also think it’s important to give something back. We support many local charities and initiatives as a business and also vote annually for an employee nominated charity we’d like to support.
Take a look at some of our celebrations and initiatives:
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW)
We celebrate and appreciate the contribution our talented apprentices make to the business. During NAW we support the national campaign by showcasing them and sharing individual stories online. Read about #NAW18 and #NAW17.
International Women’s Day (IWD)
We promote positive cultural values. The IWD national campaign which we are proud to say has been shortlisted for a Law Society Excellence award, provides the opportunity to raise the awareness of everyday and trailblazing women. Read about #IWD18 and the contribution women make to our business.
Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW)
Achieving a healthy work life balance is part of our working culture. During MHAW we look for ways to promote mental and physical health by sharing practical tips and by encouraging colleagues to get involved in activities. Read about #MHAW18 and #MHAW17.
Our commitment to CSR (Corporate and Social Responsibility)
We believe that giving back to the communities in which we work and live is very important and as a business we take part in individual events to support local causes, and help colleagues fund raise for charities they feel passionate about.
The HMEEC (Employee Engagement Committee) exists to encourage employees to be involved in the development of both people and charity related CSR initiatives across the business.
In 2018 staff voted to support Jamie’s SDR Journey, helping him and his family to raise £60K for a specialist operation to improve his quality of life. The good news is, Jamie and his family achieved this target and following his operation, he is undergoing physiotherapy.
