How good is your firm’s social life?

A good social life while undertaking a training contract might seem like a contradiction for those who fear that the long hours may get in the way. But the ability to go out for a drink with your colleagues after a long day at work should never be underestimated. Social events are a great way to get to know your colleagues as people, which in turn will make your training experience more enjoyable. What’s more, from the management’s perspective, a memorable Christmas or summer party will work wonders to motivate employees. These Lex 100 Winner firms certainly impressed trainees with their active social lives. Click on a firm name to read their Lex 100 profile and see how they scored in other categories.
