Thank you to our amazing team for all of their hard work
At Scullion LAW our people are core to the success of our business.
Their wellbeing is of utmost importance to us and we want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone in the firm for going above and beyond over the last 12-18 months.
Please be kind always – to your colleagues, to your self, to each other. It has not been easy with so many things outwith our control going on in the world around us, but we have had to make the most of the situation we are in and really pull together to do our best for our clients and for each other. As human beings we are very much aware that everyone has got their own things going on, in and out of work. So it is important to be kind to each other – talk/listen. Ask for help if not coping and let people help.
Christmas can be a difficult time for many. It is not always the merriest time of the year. It can sometimes be the saddest, loneliest & most heartbreaking. So, please be kind to each other today & always.
As you may already be aware, we have partnered up with a support network of therapists, coaches, counsellors across the UK who are on hand to help individuals and families who are struggling (follow this link).
We also work closely with Lawcare, a charity that supports mental health and wellbeing in the work place and everyone in the team who uses our Aviva healthcare can access life coaching if required.
We also have discounted gym memberships and encourage everyone to do more of what they love out of work and spend more time in nature (or in the gym as exercise is good for wellbeing).
In 2022 we hop to take part as a team in the Kiltwalk. This is something we normally do every year to make a positive difference to others.
We are also closing the office over the festive period to allow everyone the chance to switch off and recharge.
As such there will be limited service between 24 December and 4 of January.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We are preparing this blog to really thank everyone who in any way has contributed to the continued success of Scullion LAW.
Thank you to our clients, our team, our suppliers and other business referrers. We look forward to returning in 2022.
We hope that you and your family enjoy the holiday season and stay safe and healthy.
