Borenius as an Employer
Being a member of the Borenius family can be pretty great. We understand that work is just one half of the work-life balance. To foster a great team spirit at the office, we offer well-rounded perks to all of our employees from Borenius Learning to social activities and well-being.
We are a low-hierarchy organisation valuing innovativeness and independency. In addition, we promote a culture that values a healthy work-life balance.
At Borenius, we always seek to challenge the traditional concept of training by understanding learning broadly.
Here are a few things we can offer you:
We understand the concept of learning broadly and seek to challenge the traditional concept of training. The Borenius Learning programme not only aims at training legal skills but also includes other areas, such as self-leadership, career track planning, media skills and ethics workshops. The Borenius Leadership Academy provides a more in-depth look at these topics and is intended for our more senior lawyers.
You are important to us. That’s why we invest in our staff’s well-being and actively support life outside the office. We promote a flexible culture that values a healthy work-life balance. You can avail yourself of benefits related to health and well-being, such as a discount on massage services and an Alepa city bike pass supported by us, or enjoy a healthy breakfast in our monthly office meetings or a glass of wine at our after-work parties. We also offer nursery services for children in case of illness as well as a discount on cleaning services.
Our strong team spirit is the key to succeeding together. The Borenius Social & Borenius Sports teams arrange regular events and activities for our staff, such as get-togethers and sports and culture events. We also support your hobbies by offering sports and culture vouchers.
We highly appreciate our employees’ individual input to our organisation while valuing the importance of team work. By working in different practices and projects, you will gain hands-on experience and expand your expertise in several service sectors while creating new client relationships. We value your professional growth, which is why we provide you with customised support through our career planning services and special programmes, such as mentoring by senior colleagues. We regularly reflect on how you have progressed in your tasks, outline your training options and professional aspirations, and generally track your professional development.
Your career track is evaluated in terms of multifaceted quality criteria based on which your performance is measured in different development areas. In addition to legal skills, you have the opportunity to develop your self-leadership, networking and project management skills. The results of the evaluation process are introduced in your performance reviews and in connection with specific projects throughout the year.
You will be offered the opportunity to develop your skills and abilities by participating in various external and internal training sessions. We continuously expand our selection of training programmes and work towards creating a positive and innovative working environment for all of us. By conducting work satisfaction surveys and performance reviews, we ensure that your professional aspirations are taken into account. We also hold open discussion forums for feedback.
Your Borenius tutor will guide you through your induction period, and you are always welcome to share your ideas and questions with your senior colleagues. In addition, new and returning employees are offered mentoring services, which promotes self-leadership among our lawyers. We believe that creating professional development plans and balancing work and home life are the key to further increasing our employees’ productivity.
