BTO Solicitors has been awarded Employer Partner accreditation by the STEP Employer Partnership Programme (EPP).
The accreditation recognises the firm’s commitment to delivering tax planning, wills and estates services of the highest standard and to cultivating a culture of continued professional development among employees.
BTO was seen to meet the necessary standards for Employer Partner accreditation by allocating a STEP qualified mentor, by covering the financial costs of the qualification and giving employees paid leave to study and attend workshops and exams.
Allan Borthwick, chairman of BTO (pictured), said: “Our staff are our greatest asset and the professional development of our workforce remains a top priority at BTO.
“It is fantastic that our efforts to encourage uptake of the STEP qualification among those working in our trust and estates practice have been recognised by the Employer Partnership Programme.”
