Bird & Bird LLP

Bird & Bird LLP
Australia’s Employer of Choice 2019

Bird & Bird LLP prides itself on creating a positive workplace as a result of its strong set of employee retention and growth strategies. The firm places strong emphasis on fair remuneration, and of ensuring that salaries and bonuses are not skewed against a particular gender.

In Sydney, Bird & Bird has, in the past 18 months, established a Diversity and Inclusion Committee which has been very active in a range of different initiatives including: hosting an event for ‘Wear it purple day/Pride Month’ with an external speaker highlighting LGBTIQ+ issues in the legal profession; and running a number of training sessions and workshops for mental health, including an ‘RU OK day’, mindfulness and meditation skills. Bird & Bird also supports its sports teams (touch football, netball and swimming) and provides in-house yoga sessions.

The firm is proud to have an award winning global Women’s Development Programme that involves selecting key senior/upcoming female talent and sending them to its London offices. This is to give them the opportunity to gain vital support and professional development to assist senior women with their journey towards partnership.

Its new premises will have access to luxurious end of trip facilities and bicycle storage, as well as a multipurpose first aid/breast-feeding/prayer room.
