•    No billable hours targets;
•    Increases to associate salary scales from 1 January 2017
•    A bonus paid on 31 December 2016
•    The opportunity for all associates to apply to work one day a week from home
•    A total of 30 days of annual paid holiday from 1 January 2017 (pro-rated for part-time employees)
•    Out of those 30 days, 4 days can be taken as half-days (i.e. 8 half-days)
•    A four-week paid sabbatical for associates when they reach 3 YPQE (to be introduced during 2017)
•    An onsite doctor to be introduced during 2017
