Cygnet Law staff are being set a ‘featherweight’ challenge as the Redcar firm launches an initiative to promote better health at work.

The firm is working towards a Better Health Bronze Award, a scheme supported by the NHS, which recognises and celebrates the hard work and commitment of organisations that are improving the health of their employees.

This will include Cygnet staff raising money for the British Heart Foundation as   part of National Health Month.  Their fundraising efforts will include running a competition, where people have to guess how many feathers there are in a four feet boa in exchange for a donation.  The winner will receive a prize of a Breville Smoothie maker, a gym bag with some accessories and a fruit voucher.

On “Wear it, Beat It Day” on February 6, staff will be encouraged to wear a red item of clothing in exchange for a donation to the Foundation.

Cygnet will be launching a series of initiatives to promote health in the work place as it works towards the award.

Peter Medd, a director of Cygnet Law, which specialises in specialises in family law, mental health, conveyancing and wills and probate, said: “It is important to look after staff as they are a firm’s biggest asset.

“Caring about our workers’ wellbeing is embedded within the company and we are now seeking to secure independent validation for this.

“As well as having an impact on staff morale and sickness levels, the initiatives we are planning to put in place also will benefit our employees’ general welfare and quality of life outside work.”
