Worthingtons Newtownards Office was delighted to be chosen as the winner of 2 categories in the recent Ards Borough Business Awards 2015 - the Best Company to work for and an award for Investment in Health.
Senior Partner Huw Worthington said, “We pride ourselves in having a great team of professional and enthusiastic solicitors and support staff. Our staff retention rates are very high and these awards are a fantastic tribute to the entire team.”
The Newtownards Office was selected as the winner of the best Company to work for in recognition of our investment of both time and money in promoting staff well-being and bonding, through many varied ‘extra-curricular’ events, which incorporate activities from raft-building and caving, to Hawaiian themed BBQs and a cruise on Lough Neagh.
The Investment in Health award reflects the importance we place on staff physical and mental health. We have an ‘open-door’ policy, both metaphorically and physically and have recently provided on-line training to all partners and staff on ‘Equality and Diversity in the NI workplace’.
We successfully applied for a grant from Ards Borough Council under the recent ‘Mind, Body, Business’ initiative, which funded the costs of providing staff with a healthy breakfast once a week for a month, and paid for 3 meditation sessions delivered by Physio+ in Comber, which were very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed by those staff who took part.
