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.
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.
We have established a diversity and inclusion committee (pictured) which will contribute to the work of develop a workplace that promotes equality and diversity, and an inclusive working environment where everyone feels seen, heard and respected for who they are. The committee consists of committed employees who want to contribute to Thommessen's environment and culture, and is an important collaboration partner for the management to achieve the company's goals related to equality, inclusion and diversity.
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.
