The top legal employers in Australia for 2022

A wind of change has accompanied 2022. The lingering effects of the pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Great Resignation and the prevailing tough economic conditions. However, Australasian Lawyer’s 5-Star Employers of Choice have managed all of this disruption whilst still providing inclusive and supportive working environments.

To really stand out and to make their mark, employers needed to offer a favourable working schedule and a progressive culture. To bolster employee engagement and keep turnover rates low, among the perks offered by top legal employers today are shortened work weeks, promotions, salary increases and wellbeing support.

“We pride ourselves on being flexible and catering for the needs of the individual where we can,” said Richard Wood, managing principal at 2022 Employer of Choice Gilchrist Connell.
