National law firm Weightmans has been as a Top Employer in the UK for the 14th time by the Top Employers Institute.

Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and exhibits this through excellent HR policies and people practices.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion and more. Weightmans was noted for its diversity and inclusion programme as well as enhanced flexible working policies and promoting important work-life balance initiatives for those with childcare or other caring responsibilities.

Weightmans’ HR Director Helen Taylor said:

“We are delighted to have secured Top Employer status again this year. The last 12 months took an unexpected turn and what our people needed from us changed. We have operated within our guiding principles offering employee assistance, embracing flexible working, supporting our colleagues' wellbeing and using technology to ensure we remain close to each other. Our people have been incredible in return, working hard for our clients and each other despite living through an incredibly challenging time.

“We will continue to support our people and look forward to welcoming more fantastic talent to our team in 2021.”

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says:

“Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), Weightmans has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”

The programme has certified and recognised more than 600 Top Employers in 120 countries/regions across five continents.
