Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Stevens and Bolton encourages its employees to join several charitable and community initiatives. One example of such an initiative is the Tour de Law, in which every employee rode static bikes to help raise money for charity. Other examples include the company’s Give & Gain initiative, work for Sports Relief, the Guildford Legal Walk and the Surrey Hills Challenge. These events occur alongside many other initiatives that take place more regularly in the workplace, such as Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning, a charity day for Phyllis Tuckwell in the office and managing members of the firm being put in stocks and having sponges thrown at them for money. Stevens and Bolton is a member of PRIME, an alliance of law firms and legal departments across the UK that has made a commitment to broadening access to the legal profession. As a PRIME member since 2015, the firm is committed to providing work experience placements for students from less privileged backgrounds and, by using the firm’s resources and expertise, help them gain important employability skills.
Fair Deal

Stevens and Bolton currently operates the 'Thx!' scheme. One of the key strategic objectives for the firm is to make this a great place to work for all their people and an important part of that is acknowledging and showing gratitude for the help their colleagues give day to day. Often a simple ‘thank you’ will suffice, but sometimes it would be nice to acknowledge people in a more public way. This can be done via the 'Thx' online system, which allows staff to allocate Thx points to their colleagues for exemplary work. Each staff member is allocated 25 Thx points for the year and can award single or multiple points via the profile of a certain staff member on the online 'Sandbox' platform. At the end of the year, the top five employees at the top of the leader board are then given a budget to use on a joint treat day or experience.
