Scottish Business Pledge
Morton Fraser is proud to have signed up to the Scottish Government's Business Pledge, an initiative that requires signatories to uphold the principles of fairness, equality, opportunity and innovation in the workplace.
Through this pledge, we have made a commitment to continue implementing fair and progressive practices in the nine focus areas outlined which includes putting innovation at the heart of our business, promoting gender balance, investing in young people, and supporting workforce engagement.
In addition to our business strategy of being open and clear on advice and cost, this commitment further demonstrates that we consider it a priority to lead by example through embracing modern and innovative business practices in the legal sector and investing in the long-term development of our staff.
Macmillan Cancer Support
Morton Fraser set a fundraising target for our charity of the year, Macmillan, of £12,115 by 31 December 2015. This is the cost to run the telephone support service for a day. We're pleased to say we have already exceeded that target and have raised £14,406! We have ambitiously decided to increase the target to £19,000 and the extra money raised will pay for 10,000 CD versions of the Cancer Guide which could help people with sight loss or visual impairment receive the cancer information they need.
