Posted:2nd December 2022

Growing North-East law firm, EMG Solicitors were delighted to be announced as the winner of the UK Employer of the Year Award: Silver at The Investors in People (IiP) event 2022, on Tuesday 15th November at Old Billingsgate in London.

The nationally recognised award is one of many prestigious achievements for the Legal 500 firm, who are based across the North- East and Cumbria. With offices in Newcastle, Durham and Penrith (with the latter opening its doors in October this year)

No strangers to winning an accolade or two, EMG were also awarded the Investors in People silver award in July 2022 and ranked within the Top 20 Silver ‘We invest in people employer’ UK wide. Because of this, the team were invited to enter The Investors in People Awards 2022 – which they were delighted to be crowned the winners of!

Ian Burke, Head of People and Culture at EMG Solicitors said;

“Winning this award really is an amazing achievement and I’d like to thank all our people at EMG for playing their part and helping make this happen.  It doesn’t matter what role colleagues have within our organisation, everyone is integral to our success and everything we have achieved so far. We really do have something very special within our business and this award goes some way in recognising that.”

Emma Gaudern, Managing Director, EMG Solicitors added;

“We are absolutely delighted to pick up this renowned, national award. The competition was certainly tough with some very established businesses in the running, so it’s an incredible honour to be recognised. Employee engagement is central to our culture and without that we wouldn’t be able to offer the excellent service levels that we do.

The fact that people are happy and want to come to work here really does filter down to our clients, with everyone committed to putting them first and delivering an outstanding service.

On founding EMG Solicitors back in 2014, it was always our vision to create a wonderful environment and culture that people wanted to be part of. Where they felt valued and supported to be their very best for our clients and I’m proud to say we have achieved just that.  Our people really are the cornerstones of the EMG business and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their contribution in making it the success that it is.”

Paul Devoy, CEO, Investors in People, said;

“The Investors in People Awards 2022 marks a new chapter for us. We came together again after three years in our biggest celebration of exemplary leaders and organisations who have transformed themselves into a force of good, despite the challenges. I am proud of every organisation that entered this year, demonstrating the value in making work better and setting an example for other organisations to do the same.”
