Inclusiveness is a hot topic, and rightly so. An inclusive firm encourages a culture where people feel able to bring their whole self to work without fear of discrimination.
What’s more, a working environment which values and respects individual differences gives everyone the opportunity to excel.
Having good diversity and inclusion policies not only allows law firms to meet their legal and regulatory duties but also make for a responsive workforce, which may ultimately lead to better staff retention.
At progressive firm Baker McKenzie, recruits were keen to point out that ‘diversity and inclusion isn’t just a slogan but a daily reality’.
There is an ‘emphasis on teamwork’ and an ‘inclusive atmosphere’ at Bristows, which motivates trainees, and ‘the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to help you’ make Woodfines trainees feel included.
Reed Smith’s ‘approach to diversity’ and ‘general culture of inclusion’ comes highly commended, as does the ‘friendly’ atmosphere’ at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.
Colleagues at Debevoise & Plimpton are ‘supportive’ and trainees love ‘being treated as valuable team members’.
An environment which encourages all employees to be ‘self-starters’ prevails at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and Michelmores has an ‘inclusive culture’ thanks to its ‘reputation for dealing with employees fairly’.
‘Not stuffy or pretentious in the slightest’, TLT is an expert at making employees feel at ease, whilst ‘the people’ at Sullivan & Cromwell are cited as one of the great strengths of the firm.
