We are committed to promoting and maintaining a culture underpinned by values of civility, respect and fairness.
The Firm is committed to providing a workplace:
- Which recognises our staff are the most valuable asset and as such their welfare is of paramount concern.
- Which engenders a sense of pride, camaraderie and community amongst colleagues.
- Where expectations and roles are clearly defined with a view to minimising unnecessary stress in so far as possible; so that staff may grow and realise their potential.
- Which recognises the need for balance between demands of work, family and personal life.
- Where presenteeism is categorically discouraged and staff are actively reminded and encouraged to take their breaks, including lunch hours and annual leave.
- Where there are open channels of communication; staff feel they have good levels of involvement and influence as regards decision making via mechanisms such as the Representative Committee and contribution to departmental meetings.
- Which is supportive and responsive in ensuring concerns raised by staff are addressed appropriately.
- Ensures the location and availability of useful resources are clearly signposted. This will be primarily via the firm’s targeted intranet page.
- Where awareness-raising sessions and initiatives are made available to empower staff to care for their own wellbeing and that of their colleagues better.
