We are very pleased to say that Atherton Godfrey has been shortlisted in the Excellence in People Development and Training category of the 17th annual Doncaster Chamber Business Awards.
In their search for the winner, the judges will be looking for evidence that staff can access development opportunities and are able to progress through the organisation – and that’s something we are very proud of providing here.
To make it to the finals, businesses had to demonstrate that their support, training and investment in staff has supported business growth.
Staff development has always been important at Atherton Godfrey. The firm has been shortlisted in the Law Careers Training and Recruitment Awards for the past several years and went on to win the Best Recruiter Award in 2013. In addition, partner and head of personal injury, Diane Parker has made it to the finals in the Best Training Principal category for the last 3 years running.
These awards are particularly important as it’s the trainees themselves who make the nominations.
Senior partner, Don Bird, said: “Providing excellent client care is very important to us and this can only be achieved by having well trained staff, who have the expert knowledge needed to handle the often complex legal needs of our clients confidently.
We recognise the vital role that all our staff play in the development of the practice and we are committed to providing rewarding careers for all. We are proud to say that there are no restrictions to career progression – indeed, several of the partners began their legal careers as trainees with Atherton Godfrey.”
Good luck to all the other nominees – the winners will be announced at the Chamber Awards on Thursday 10 December.
