The health and wellness of our people is critical to our success.  Skilled, committed and engaged employees are key for growth and vitality of our firm.  Our approach to employee wellbeing is a value aligned with our promises to our clients; that we are proactive, collaborative, personal and exceptional.

We are proud of our people and we recognise that, at times, pressures of long hours and heavy workloads can be unavoidable.  We adopt best practice and behavioural principles to tackle and reduce the avoidable stresses in the workplace.

We have developed a highly effective, ever evolving, and bespoke programme to create a healthier work environment which enables our people to perform at their best and deliver optimum client service.

We have a responsibility to our employees to create a work environment that they are excited to be a part of.

Our wellness programme is led by Christina Ioannou, an solicitor in the Real Estate Finance team.  Christina is also a certified Health Coach having qualified at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. It is this hybrid role which inspires the most valuable aspect of the programme – that it is inclusive, meaningful and highly personalised.

Naturally, Christina recognises the pressures of day-to-day transactional work; the demands, bottlenecks and resultant stress-points, as she commits herself to the high-intensity work environment she shares with her colleagues.

Christina comments: "We aim to promote health and wellbeing as a part of our firm’s culture ensuring the initiatives are innovative and entertaining.  Our ultimate aim is to establish a harmonious workplace where our people are in their best frame of mind, body and social vibrancy."
