Diversity and inclusion in our London office
We are a people business. We will only be able to maximise our people’s contribution if we create and nurture an environment and culture which supports, respects and values all our differences, whether in gender, race, nationality, religion, belief, age, ability or disability, or sexual orientation. The provision of an inclusive and collegial working environment where every employee is valued for his or her contribution is fundamental to our vision and values and is a key ingredient in our business success. A strong and healthy focus on diversity is not an option, it’s a necessity.
We already work hard to attract new talent. But we need to work harder to seek out areas where talent lies hidden in order that we are recruiting from the broadest talent pool possible. To retain our talent, we need to work even harder, encouraging a culture where every individual feels highly valued and motivated, regardless of role. A focus on diversity and inclusion is critical to this.
Therefore, we are striving to put in place best practice policies and programmes around diversity and inclusion so that our clients, and our employees, truly believe we are committed to being outstanding in this area. We appreciate this is an ongoing journey and we are determined to be seen as a successful example of diversity and inclusion in the legal sector and the broader business community. In turn, we hope our clients will feel they are partnering with a practice which consistently applies high standards in this area, and our people will remain proud to work for us, as an employer of choice.
