NI: Worthingtons Solicitors honoured with Ards Borough business awards
Worthingtons Solicitors was recently honoured with two awards at the Ards Borough Business Awards 2015.
The Belfast-based firm’s Newtownards office won in the Best Company to Work For and Investment in Health categories, in recognition of the firm’s investment in its workforce and importance placed on staff’s physical and mental health.
The office has run a variety of “extra-curricular” events for staff, including raft-building, caving, Hawaiian-themed BBQs and a cruise on Lough Neagh. It has also provided all partners and staff with online training on “Equality and Diversity in the NI Workplace”.
The solicitor firm successfully applied for a grant from Ards Borough Council under the Mind, Body, Business initiative, which funded the costs of providing staff with a healthy breakfast once a week for a month and three meditation sessions delivered by Physio+ in Comber.
Huw Worthington, senior partner at the firm, said after the awards ceremony: “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.”
