Stand Together is one of the core values of leading independent law firm Brabners, creating a strong family feeling. Each member of the team of more than 400 people was rewarded for their efforts during a difficult year with an extra day's holiday and a performance bonus.

With offices in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston, Brabners employs national experts in many practice areas. Team spirit finds an outlet in charity initiatives, social and company-wide events. Each team has a social fund to spend on getting together.

Established in 1815, Brabners serves businesses of all sizes, public sector bodies and charities, entrepreneurs and high net-worth individuals. Everyone is allowed two paid days off to volunteer for a good cause and the company will be encouraging maximum take-up of the scheme in future. Three key themes emerged from feedback from the Best Companies survey 2020 and steps to improve Brabners' performance on the Fair Deal, Giving Something Back and Personal Growth factors are on the way in 2021.

The business intends to introduce blended home and office working permanently in response to people's preferences, expressed in surveys. Responses to a Wellbeing survey were overwhelmingly positive: 89% of respondents felt they had access to relevant support and advice during the pandemic and 91% were confident of staying connected to their team. Although 71% felt they knew who to turn to if they felt anxious, the company said it was “not nearly enough” and reminded everyone of the support available from the employee assistance programme.

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The independent Brabners Foundation awarded 13 emergency grants of £1,000 in 2020 to front-line food banks, hospices and organisations providing mental health and loneliness support for vulnerable or homeless people.
