As a firm, we recognise that some of the best training for our staff is specific on-the-job training and team counsel. Our Longview Learning Series is designed with this in mind to share best-practice and knowledge from across the firm on key topics in an interactive and informal setting. With such a strong culture and close-knit organisation, we believe that we can be supportive of each other’s development and learning to an exceptional degree.
Engaging with our Community
We believe in the importance of mentoring children and young adults to help them realise their potential. Our aim is to use Longview’s resources to drive positive change outside of Longview’s walls. In 2022, Longview partnered with Mosaic (a Prince’s Trust Organisation) which offers mentoring programmes in schools creating opportunities for 11 to 18 year olds who are growing up in the most deprived communities. Longview’s staff will take part in the programme by mentoring young people at schools in the London area.
Longview supports charity days in the communities in which our staff work and live. The volunteering programme enables staff to spend a number of hours on a local community project that they have selected.

Engaging with our People
At Longview, the wellbeing, support and professional development of our people is of paramount importance. We engage with our staff in various ways to nurture our culture of collaboration and self-improvement. A few examples of how we engage across the firm:
Longview actively promotes and supports formal training, including professional exams as well as courses and seminars. We encourage staff to join appropriate industry groups and forums in their specialist areas, in order to build their own knowledge as well as their knowledge of best industry practice and the competitor landscape.
At Longview we focus not only on developing the next generation of leaders, but also identifying those deeper within the organisation who possess future leadership potential. We use Executive Coaching in addition to training, mentoring and education. Quality successors of the future need time and investment to acquire the skills and experience that they need to lead effectively in the future. Longview sees clear succession planning and the investment required as fundamental to the delivery of a long-term sustainable and successful firm.

Our Longview Learning Series is designed with this in mind to share best-practice and knowledge from across the firm on key topics in an interactive and informal setting. With such as strong culture and close-knit organisation, we believe that we can be supportive of each other’s development and learning to an exceptional degree.
In 2021, we held a series of webinars and workshops as part of our Wellbeing Programme during the COVID lockdowns on the topics of building better habits, stress management, nutrition and sleep. The workshops explored areas such as the science of habits and behavioural change; harnessing the power of habit psychology; and using nutrients as a tool to manage stress and improve performance, amongst others.
