We are actively seeking to create a firm characterised by more diversity. You and everyone else at Thommessen shall experience equal opportunities and shall feel comfortable about being yourself at work, irrespective of background, gender, religion, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
Our strategy includes specific targets for increasing the proportion of women
among our senior attorneys and partners. In order to reach our targets, we have introduced a number of measures in relation to recruitment, management training, flexibility for staff with small children, etc. An accompanying measure is the establishment of a designated Women’s Committee, which supports management in its efforts to improve our gender balance and increase the retention of women lawyers.
In addition to increasing the proportion of women at the firm, we are also taking steps to become a more multiculturally diverse firm. Not only because we want to reflect the society we live in and because we as advisors aim to provide the very best service to a diverse range of businesses, but also because of our strong belief that diversity makes for a better and richer organisational culture.
It is best for everyone if each of us feel that they can be themself at work. We are therefore delighted that the Thommessen employee survey confirms that such is the case in our firm. We also want new TeamThommessen members to be true to themself and enrich us with their own unique perspective.
