Talbots Law named one of the best places to work in the West Midlands
A leading Black Country law firm has been named one of the best places to work in the Midlands.
Talbots Law, which recently announced 10% growth in 2018, has been ranked 65th in the regional league table compiled by The Sunday Times and Best Companies, recognising its commitment to investing in its staff, their careers and to its charity work.
The legal specialist, already awarded the 1* rating for the second successive year in the national awards, has now been named in the exclusive regional list after securing significant improvements in scores for leadership, employees being treated fairly and ‘giving something back’.
Chief Executive Mary Mocklow commented: “Our aim is to be the employer of choice in the Black Country and Worcestershire and this is an important step in the right direction.
“The Sunday Times Best Companies programme ensures we are benchmarking what we do against the best firms in the West Midlands and the UK. We want Talbots to continue to grow and this means we need talented, motivated and values-led staff doing the right thing for our clients.”
She continued: “We invest heavily in recruiting locally, promoting from within and investing in our apprenticeship programme. Our strong score shows that the strategy is paying dividends.”
Every employee was asked to complete an independent survey of their experience of working at Talbots Law, revealing what it’s like being an employee at one of the firm’s six offices in Codsall, Dudley, Halesowen, Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Wolverhampton.
Mary continued: “I was delighted with our ‘giving something back’ score. We encourage all our people to support local causes and last year we raised over £50,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH). Our employees have run, climbed, baked, cycled and dressed up and dressed down - I couldn’t be prouder of them.
“Our work with BCH means they have been able to purchase lifesaving equipment for a fleet of four ambulances. We’re not going to stop there; we’re already looking forward to another record-breaking year!”
