A leading law firm has been crowned the best employer in Leamington after a successful year of growth.
Wright Hassall, which is based at Olympus Avenue, won the title at this year’s Leamington Business Awards, the fifth annual instalment of the event.
It is the first time the legal firm has won an award at the ceremony, having sponsored awards and received nominations in previous years.
The firm works for clients across a variety of sectors, covering agriculture, housing, manufacturing and more, with a number of new recruits brought in throughout the course of 2018.
As an employer, Wright Hassall prides itself on offering structured career development for its staff, as well as training opportunities and social activities to ensure the business maintains a vital role in its community.
Paul Gregson, of Wright Hassall, said: “We are incredibly proud to be recognised as the best employer in Leamington, beating some high quality competition in the process.
“Staff are the most important aspect of any business and we want our team to feel appreciated and enjoy working for us.
“We have a collaborative and inclusive culture at the heart of our company and have confidence in the whole team to get the best results for our clients.
“At the moment, we are enjoying a period of growth and have welcomed a number of new faces this year, each bringing qualities that will help us to support our clients..”
The Leamington Business Awards is a not-for-profit awards scheme designed to celebrate local business success in the town.
The awards were set up five years ago by photographer and business owner, Karen Massey, and are now organised by Harrison Beale & Owen Chartered Accountants and Financial Advisers.
Each year, the ceremony helps raise funds for charity, with £10,000 raised this year to be split between Springfield Mind and The Ups Of Downs.
The event was held at The Assembly this year, with a team of Wright Hassall staff attending on the night.
Emma Marsh at Wright Hassall, said: “It was a great feeling when our name was called out.
“There is a really great team spirit at Wright Hassall and as an employee it is really positive when I see that my employer is so respected in the local community.”
