Celebrating employees who go the extra mile

Now in its 3rd year running, we’re delighted to announce our summer 2021 Above and Beyond Award winners. Our people are at the heart of everything we do; our Above and Beyond awards are our peer recognition program that rewards employees who go the extra mile for the firm and live by our values every day.

Twice a year, we host the awards ceremony and select five regional winners across the Americas, Europe, Dubai, and Asia. The winners strongly represent our five core values – drive, humility, results, adaptability, and emotional intelligence, and are nominated by the people who know them best: their colleagues.
