Legal firm’s accolade

A LEADING North-east legal firm, which has an office in Ellon, has achieved the prestigious Investors in People Accreditation, the most successful framework for business improvement through people in the UK.

The achievement recognises Aberdein Considine’s commitment to its employees and demonstrates a solid foundation of good practice, which remains challenging and aspirational for many organisations.

The firm joins an exclusive group of UK employers eligible to use and display the sought after Investors in People logo and plaque, and enjoy its benefits.

Commenting on the award, Harvey Aberdein, managing partner, said: “We are delighted to achieve this accreditation, which we feel is testimony to a lot of hard work that has been put in to ensure our staff receive the training and development needed to keep us ahead of the competition in the legal sector.

“The increased volume of corporate and personal clients we now act for under our Property, Legal & Financial divisions would suggest they also value the focus we place on staff development.”

Peter Russian, chief executive of Investors in People Scotland, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Aberdein Considine. I would like to congratulate the organisation and its people on their commitment to continuous improvement.”
