Baker McKenzie is the first law firm in Poland to receive the "Friendly Workplace 2023" emblem and statuette. Awarded by the editors of the MarkaPracodawcy.pl portal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the area of Employer Branding and People & Culture.
"Friendly Workplace" is an award bestowed on employers who can boast a modern approach in the area of personnel policy and employee development. Its recipients are companies that respect and support a work-life balance, create a healthy and friendly work environment, focus on open relationships with employees based around partnership as well as invest in the development of employees' professional competences and interests.
"We are very proud of this award. This award complements our strategy of fully utilizing the potential of the talent that the Baker McKenzie brand attracts. We make sure that our employees can fully realize their ambitions and develop professionally using the law firm's international resources in terms of training or of trips that facilitate networking and the exchange of knowledge. Baker McKenzie is a 'Firm of opportunity' - a place where anyone can succeed, regardless of their background or office location." - said Piotr Rawski, managing partner of Baker McKenzie.
"The Friendly Workplace award is a great honor for us and proof that the actions we take at the law firm are paying off. Our organizational culture, a 'culture of friendship,' is based on cooperation, trust, diversity and tolerance. Regardless of our professional successes, we know that how we listen, behave, and collaborate is important. In doing so, we build a personal brand within the organization that defines us as human beings. What was also noted by the portal's editors are the law firm's programs and policies, including PointOne - a unique program created to shape a friendly and safe work environment thanks to which we know the rules and solutions that help us respond effectively before problems arise," said Anna Borzecka, HR director at Baker McKenzie law firm.
