Redcar-based Cygnet Law has been presented with a highly coveted Better Health at Work award.
Following its hard work to improve the health and wellbeing of its team during 2016, the legal firm collected a Silver Award at the Better Health at Work Awards (BHAWA). The awards were developed by workplace health specialists in the NHS and Public Health North East to foster positive initiatives by the region’s businesses.
Cygnet Law received the acknowledgement after supporting healthy campaigns internally throughout the year. These included; its first annual beach walk, which raised money for Redcar & Cleveland Mind; Healthy Heart Week, and an initiative to help reduce the amount that staff smoked by creating a chart so that they could track how many cigarettes they consumed.
Peter Medd, Managing Partner of Cygnet Law, which specialises in family law, mental health, conveyancing and wills and probate, said: “It’s important that businesses promote the health and wellbeing of its work force. Happy and healthy staff are more productive and are vital to the long-term success of any company.
“Cygnet received a Bronze Award at last year’s ceremony, so to have picked up a Silver Award is evidence that our efforts to ensure our staff are well cared for, and our commitment to foster a healthy workplace, are paying off. However, this award is a team effort, and ultimately, we would not have received it without the hard work of the entire workforce at Cygnet.”
