The Greater Manchester-based law firm has launched a social committee, a corporate gym membership and a referral scheme.

It has also introduced a gift and incentives scheme, where employees are rewarded with vouchers, gift sets, tablets, a free lunch and event tickets. 

To help boost employee wellbeing, it has also introduced a five-a-side football team and a running club.

Other new initiatives include:

  • The Asons Foundation Charity Committee, which helps raise money to aid the local community and charities.
  • The Employee Committee, which offers a forum for employees to voice suggestions for change to both process and policy within the organisation.
  • A new break room, which includes sofas, a high-definition television, an Xbox 360, a pool table, fruit bowls, vending machines and a foosball table.
  • Discount cards, such as Love2Shop and Gourmet Society.
  • Friday Eve, where every Thursday employees can win incentives through competitions, such as a race on space hoppers down the length of the office.

Prior to the introduction of the new benefits, the organisation offered a dental plan, eyecare vouchers, childcare vouchers, a car leasing scheme and a pension scheme.

Sarah Ainscough, HR manager at Asons Solicitors, said: “Our efforts to attract talent has resulted in a young and imaginative leadership.
