We are delighted to have signed up to the Mindful Business Charter as part of a commitment to better mental health and wellbeing for our people.
The Charter aims to promote a culture of openness about mental wellbeing and improved communication, with other law firms and financial services businesses also keen members.
Managing Partner Steven Greenwood said: “We pride ourselves on our ethos of making sure people feel valued and engaged, and that managers listen and make time for the people in their teams. We are pleased to join this Charter and support this very worthwhile campaign.”
Stone King, and other members, have pledged to abide by a set of principles including respect for working hours and considerate delegation of tasks.
Performance against these principles will be monitored as part of a standing agenda item during review meetings.
Stone King prides itself of being a great place to work and in 2017 won the Best Place to Work Award at the Bath Business Awards. We also hold Investors in People Gold.
Speaking on behalf of the founding group, Philip Aiken, Managing Director at Barclays said:
"Stone King's wholehearted engagement with the Charter demonstrates its passion and belief in inspiring positive change. The take-up from so many of our banking and legal counterparts shows the power of collaboration and we hope that in time these principles will be applied in all organisations across all sectors."
The Charter is supported by mental health charity Mind, the Law Society, Law Care and the Solicitors Regulatory Authority.
