Alexander Hall is an award-winning mortgage advisory firm that has put clear and significant effort into workplace wellbeing. Together, Nicola, Dom and Tom discuss the necessity of investing in employees.
This episode explores both the way that the Alexander Hall team approaches the creation of a healthy workplace and how other firms can follow suit.
Dom and Tom put particular emphasis on the role that Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) plays in creating an environment that truly cares and helps their employees grow. Alexander Hall is involved in many D&I initiatives in the hope of building a more inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive.
The duo also share their findings for how firms can achieve a healthy work culture, even in the face of working from home.
