Roythornes achieves Investors in People Silver status

East Midlands based law firm Roythornes Solicitors has been awarded a silver accreditation by Investors in People, an internationally recognised people management standard, after showcasing a high level of commitment and investment in its staff development and wellbeing.

Roythornes, a national law firm with offices in Alconbury, Nottingham, Peterborough and Spalding, has an over 200-strong team and covers a wide range of expertise including agriculture, food and drink, property, litigation, private client and family law.

Gillian Nash-Kennell, HR director at Roythornes, said: “We are delighted to have achieved the silver Investors in People award, particularly as this is the first year we’ve applied for the accreditation.

“Over the few years, we’ve been working on a clear strategy and vision for the firm and it’s really become part of the culture here at Roythornes. We look to empower our teams and individuals by investing in training and management time, so I’m thrilled this was recognised in our assessment.”

Investors in People work with businesses in order to drive better leadership and workplace environments in companies across the UK and internationally.

Vember Mortlock, managing director of Roythornes, added: “Supporting and developing our staff is one of our priorities, so achieving Investors in People silver status is a real triumph and testament to our dedication. Staff feedback has told us that the training and workplace initiatives such as the investment in learning and development that we have introduced have really made a difference.

“We are currently looking to recruit across all our offices, Alconbury in particular, to help support our ambitious plans for growth. We aim to offer great benefits for staff at all levels and consistently feature in the Legal 500, however this highly respected accolade will hopefully help encourage top level talent to join us.”
