About Weightmans LLP


What is it like to work for Weightmans LLP

Leadership
Leadership
Weightmans strive forward as a combined workforce. There is no segregation between their leaders and employees and everyone adopts an open door policy. Their values state that they have a clear approach to teamwork and respect and the senior and managing partners lead them in this area. Both the senior and managing partner carry out road shows at each office to update on firm performance. This also serves as an excellent opportunity for question and answer sessions, in addition to the monthly staff forums at which the senior partner is always present.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
As a company they are aware of the increasing pressures placed on staff both in terms of work and private life. They have commissioned Employee Care as a 24 hour service to both employees and their families where they can seek counselling, legal advice and information on health and well-being. They offer flexi-time, flexible working and remote working facilities and are supportive of times when dependents require care and assistance and have a dependent/parental leave policy. The benefits and events Weightmans provide always take into consideration the families of their employees.

One to one meetings and peer recognition are encouraged. The offices are open plan throughout the firm and encourages instant recognition from peers and managers. Weightmans hold an annual awards ceremony where employees are nominated to receive an award within a number of categories. The award may be for anything that the employee has done and is used as a vessel for recognising the contributions their employees make. A staff newsletter is distributed and a number of notice boards on each floor of each office are used to display posters, health and safety information, charity events and management information.
