Stephens Scown LLP has again been named in the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK list, which celebrates the best in workplace engagement.

Additionally, this year the firm has also been ranked eighth in the Top 20 Best Law Firms to Work For in the UK and 28th in the 50 Best Companies to Work For in the south west, the only law firm to make it into the regional list this year.

Managing partner, Richard Baker, said: “In a hugely challenging year for everyone, we are delighted that we have ranked for the seventh consecutive year in the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK list. Our people are the heart of our business, so this is testament to our teamwork, and our culture of supporting each other and our clients.”

Stephens Scown was the first large law firm to become employee owned and offers a comprehensive programme of employee wellbeing, engagement and giving back initiatives, including allowing colleagues to take three days off a year for volunteering and offering pro bono work for charitable or community projects.  

The Best Companies to Work For survey recognises the well-being and motivation of employees. It is widely acknowledged as the most searching and comprehensive research into employee engagement in the UK and the results depend entirely on the opinion of employees.

For every survey the firm’s employees completed, Stephens Scown is making a donation to the firm’s charity of the year, Surfers Against Sewage, with the charity receiving £1,065.
