Double award win for Trowers & Hamlins for diversity and wellbeing
Top 40 law firm Trowers & Hamlins was awarded top marks twice over for the Diversity and Inclusion and Mental Health and Wellbeing Initiative Awards at the CILEx National Awards Ceremony on Thursday 5th September at Madame Tussauds in London.
The firm scooped both awards at the ceremony hosted by presenter Claudia Winkleman, and was commended for its 'successful initiative that has led to enhanced staff satisfaction, improved operational performance and the embedding of mental health and wellbeing into organisational values and culture'.
It was also honoured for 'embracing the benefit of recruiting, retaining and supporting the development of a diverse workforce' and recognised for 'having a workforce which understands the needs of its client base and is best placed to reassure and encourage clients to seek access to justice'.
Sue Brooks, Head of Reward said:
"We are thrilled with our double win at the CILEx awards. Our focus on mental health and wellbeing is a top priority for us and our culture and ethos is about diversity and inclusion for all our staff. Receiving these awards demonstrates the impact of our programme TrowersIncludes, the spirit of our firm and how we work together to maintain a happy and healthy workplace. Congratulations to everybody at Trowers, we should all be extremely proud of this fantastic achievement."
