Tees Law believes in the power of the body as well as the power of the mind, so staff were encouraged to take part in two physical challenges during lockdown.

For the Tees Step Challenge, the team covered a total of more than 100 million paces – the equivalent of twice round the globe – to raise money for Mind. Red January saw them participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day for 30 days in support of Sport in Mind.

Tees Law has 325 staff in Brentwood, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Royston, Saffron Walden and Bishop's Stortford, where the firm was founded 108 years ago. It provides legal services and independent financial advice to individuals, families and businesses.

The group managing director kept all members of the team updated via daily emails during the early months of lockdown. As the pandemic progressed, the leadership team moved to a weekly email and a monthly pre-recorded business update video.

The HR team had regular check-ins with staff, including managers, and took part in surgery sessions to deal with any questions and concerns about Covid-19 and returning to the office. Blended working eased the transition from WFH and will ensure everyone can obtain the right work/life balance going forward.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

78% of staff agreed

My manager shares important knowledge and information with me

During the pandemic the heads of department each set up a management team, comprising all the managers in their departments. These met on a regular basis not only to give updates on business matters but to support one another mentally and share knowledge.

Leadership

81% of staff agreed

This organisation is run on strong values / principles

The leadership team kept up to date with staff during lockdown through informal meetings, in one-to-one or group formats, and by joining in with virtual activities that included quizzes, gin tastings and escape rooms. Also, the leadership team sent employees a gift hamper as a Christmas treat.

My Team

81% of staff agreed

I feel a strong sense of family in my team

The heads of each Tees Law office award a gift card/bottle of champagne every month to an individual or group of colleagues as a reward for special effort. Team heads take their people out for lunch or dinner as a reward for their hard work on a daily basis.

Quote from the top...
"Our strategy has ‘Great Place to Work’ as one of its 4 key focus areas and I am thrilled to see our business achieve the 1 star accreditation in recognition of our combined efforts, especially so given the challenges we have all faced over the past year. The accreditation is the best insight into how well we are executing that part of our strategy and driving our business forward."

Ashton Hunt, Group Managing Director - Tees
