We are recognized as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024…

Today we have officially been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024 by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

The UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List recognizes the UK companies making employee development a key part of their company culture.

The workplaces that made the list offer employees the chance to better themselves, learn new skills and progress. In being included in the List, we have demonstrated we understand that development is not one-size fits all, and that we actively support every single employee to undertake their own tailored journey of growth.

Great Place To Work® evaluated each company’s culture, benefits, approach to leadership and development, alongside anonymous responses from employees. Only the businesses which achieved the highest scores after evaluation received Best Workplaces™ status.

We’re delighted to have been included in the list – it acknowledges our work over the last few years to introduce new opportunities and policies which solidify our commitment to innovation and our team’s development.

Our Head of People Claire Harrison said:

“We really understand how important it is to support our staff with their aspirations and will always try to accommodate this where possible.  Burnetts has a long history of providing great training and we are proud to have ‘grown’ many of our current lawyers and retained them, as they have never felt the need to move away to satisfy their desire for progression.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK, said:

“Employee development is future-focused and evidences a commitment to employee’s long-term growth. It ensures your people feel valued, and feeds into the overall company culture and strategy. Each year, we recognise organisations whose thriving workplace cultures are enabling both their people and their business to flourish. Opportunities for learning and development are a crucial element of this success, which is why we’re so thrilled to be recognising this year, for the very first time, the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development.

“Congratulations to Burnetts for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List.”
