Bradford-based LCF Law has been recognised as one of the finest workplaces in a prestigious guide that gathers feedback from employees across a wide range of industries throughout the UK.
The firm’s inclusion in The Sunday Times’ Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL, a list of medium-sized companies, is a result of an anonymous survey completed by 87% of LCF Law’s team, who operate from offices in Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, and Ilkley.
Simon Stell, the managing partner, expressed his satisfaction with the accolade, stating, “These national awards identify the top workplaces solely based on the responses received from employees. The process not only provides invaluable insights but also enables us to evaluate our culture, colleague engagement, and the sense of value our team members experience.”
The survey, consisting of 26 questions, gauges employee satisfaction across six fundamental areas, including reward and recognition, information sharing, empowerment, instilling pride, job satisfaction, and well-being.
Simon further explained, “We understand the significance of a company’s culture and colleague engagement in achieving long-term success. We have collaborated with our colleagues to foster an environment where they are acknowledged, appreciated, and proud to be part of our team. We achieved an ‘excellent’ rating in all six key areas, with scores ranging between 84% and 89%, surpassing the industry average by 15% to 18% in each category.”
He continued, “As we actively recruit ten new individuals across all levels this year, these results solidify our position as an employer of choice in the Yorkshire legal market. It ensures that we attract and retain the most talented and high-performing individuals.”
