We are happy to announce that Borenius has been shortlisted in The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards 2016 in two categories under People and Talent: Best Agile Working Initiative and Best Recruitment Campaign.
Borenius competes in the Best Agile Working Initiative with its Crowded Years Initiative™, a project launched in 2011 aiming to provide a better and more flexible working environment for our employees. As part of the initiative, our firm promotes flexible working times, working from home and sharing responsibility for projects. We keep in contact with lawyers on family leave and provide all returning employees with a private mentor to facilitate their integration into the workplace.
In the Best Recruitment Campaign category, Borenius’ candidate is ‘Borenius Amazing Case’, an event where students were offered an opportunity to participate in a “real-life” acquisition exercise in which the students as representatives of the buyer performed a fictional legal due diligence inspection regarding the target company. Overall the event was an efficient and natural way to market Borenius as an employer.
The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards recognises and celebrates excellence in business services individuals and teams in legal services providers across the entire legal market. Judges will be looking for operational excellence, examples of creativity and original thinking.
The Awards ceremony will be held in London on Wednesday 28 September.
