Quiz nights take place via Zoom, along with pizza- or cocktail-making evenings and salsa dancing. Daily chats happen on the firm’s WhatsApp group.
Staff are encouraged to complete and update a career-development dashboard to include training, development, skill level and ambition. At career-development meetings, they can discuss their goals and training with a dedicated team. A job and responsibility matrix allows them to compare their job level with others and see what is required to progress.
