Fletchers Solicitors has been listed as a Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work for in 2017, for the second year running.
The leading medical negligence and personal injury law firm was awarded 85th place in the annual list, which recognises outstanding levels of employee engagement at the firm.
The Sunday Times praised Fletchers’ strong training and development strategy, as well as its wide range of employee benefits, including its flexi-time policy and colleague-nominated awards.
This hard-fought and celebrated list represents the top 100 companies in the ‘mid’ category with the highest Best Companies Index scores. Fletchers achieved an impressive score of 702.
The accolade follows a number of recent success stories for Fletchers – most recently the opening of a new office in Manchester and the launch of its innovative trailblazer apprenticeship scheme, where apprentices can qualify as a solicitor without the burden of university fees.
The annual ranking from The Sunday Times and Best Companies is widely acknowledged as one of the most extensive studies into employee engagement in the UK. All the scores and ratings are based on employee opinions and every year the questionnaires are revised to reflect the current workplace concerns.
Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers Solicitors, said: “Making the list is a huge accolade for the team and entirely supportive of our vision of achieving Top 100 law firm status by 2018.
“We work hard to create an environment in which our talented team can flourish. As well as offering outstanding training programmes and career development opportunities, we understand the importance of fostering an excellent working environment and culture. Our reward, recognition and employee wellbeing schemes have helped grow the firm from 90 to 370 people in just four years. Plus, our groundbreaking apprenticeship scheme is helping to encourage diversity in the law profession.
“Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we’re proud that our efforts have been recognised in The Sunday Times highly esteemed list.”
