After being asked about their responsible business commitments by a prospective client, law firm Beale and Co joined Heart of the City as a member in 2018 to help refine their approach.
Partner, Nathan Modell leads on developing the firm’s programme alongside trainee solicitor, Elizabeth Andrews. The pair closely followed HotC’s responsible business road map, starting by reviewing their existing activities and surveying employees in their London, Dublin and Dubai offices.
With the support of Heart of the City, they’ve made great strides with their programme. During 2018, the firm took part in fundraising activities including the London Legal Walk, hosted regular office socials – and raised around £10,000 for new charity partner CRASH; the construction industry charity!
In response to their employee survey, Nathan and Lizzie worked with their HR department to run a ‘Wellbeing Week’, promoting positive health and wellbeing at work. A ‘Curry and Chat’ night and desk yoga sessions helped them to secure a wellbeing budget to develop these activities.
