“Attracting and retaining the best people is one of the greatest challenges any company faces. Our culture of putting our employees first helps us stand out from the crowd. A major focus this time has been on work-life balance. Having a happy and healthy workforce means our clients benefit too. Our attention now turns to striving to make it four out of four Best Companies awards next year.” – April-Jayne Barnes, HR Manager
Every single member of our team matters. Whether you’re a Solicitor, an Administrator, a Trainee or a Director – we’re all responsible for making Harrison Drury one of the best law firms to work at in the UK.
Our One HD ethos recognises those who contribute at all levels of the firm and values client service and entrepreneurship throughout the organisation.
As the firm grows we invest significant resources in making sure our staff get to know either other, personally and professionally so that we build a resilient and effective team.
Staff Social Scheme
As our firm grows it’s important to us that we retain the good quality relationships that have helped our firm to flourish. The Staff Social Committee organises events on a quarterly basis to ensure that our teams get to know each other across departments and geographies. In addition to our busy social calendar all staff are welcome to join our charitable giving scheme – raising money for causes we all care about.
We know that we’re only as good as our people. This is why we invest heavily in the personal development of our entire team. From a formal PDP process through to internal “lunch-and-learns” you’ll get regular access to personal development.
Employee Support Scheme
We don’t just want to look after your career, we also want to make sure you’re thriving as a person too. Mental health is an area too often ignored in the work place. At Harrison Drury we enrol all of our staff into an Employee Support Scheme that affords access to counselling, telephone support, employer advice as well as a range of other benefits to make sure you have access to timely and professional advice both for work, and at home.
