Personal Growth

Not only are they told this by recruitment consultants, they are recognised by their competitors and experience no problems in recruiting highly talented trainee level Attorneys. The company also has excellent retention rates.

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
The introduction of the cash plan, alongside the firm’s private health and dental plan which is all paid for by D Young & Co, has been really well received. They have found that individuals are opting for the cash plan more than the private health. The cash plan is a great way to promote other health aspects as it incorporates optical benefits, prescription benefits, as well as alternative medicines. The firm is particularly pleased as this has also generated savings for the business, which have been reinvested into other benefits. These other benefits have included a discounted shopping portal. Whilst not directly associated with well-being, there have been two key advantages. Firstly, it has given individuals the opportunity to maximise online shopping discounts in their comfort of their own home, but it also gives discount in health and well-being areas. For example, employees can get 8% off products at Boots, as well as saving money on gym membership and other fitness activities.

Fair Deal
Fair Deal
Over the course of the first half of the firm's financial year, they experienced high levels of Work in Progress (WIP). This WIP caused the firm issues with maintaining cash flow levels, because invoices were being delayed. Consequently the firm implemented a WIP Team of the quarter bonus, which recognises teams who maintain their WIP levels within the operationally acceptable guidelines. The bonus is paid out to the individuals who have contributed towards keeping WIP to the communicated levels, and therefore recognises the firm's team ethos by acknowledging that the bonus may also go to individuals outside the immediate time. The reason for the bonus was clearly explained to all staff, and consequently a number of team members have come up with suggestions for improvement to help manage WIP across the firm.
