Quality and consistency through collaboration

We are pleased to announce that Sparke Helmore has been recognised in the 2023 5-Star Employers of Choice!

The Australasian Lawyer 2023 5-Star Employers of Choice showcases legal employers leading the way with policies and initiatives that engage their staff in areas critical to positive employee experience.  Firms were assessed against the following criteria:

  • Training and personal development
  • Career progression
  • Recruitment
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Access to technology and resources
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Remuneration, reward & recognition
  • Health and wellbeing.

“The underpinning factor for us is that we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach,” says COO Sharon Bennett. “We leave that with the partner or manager of the person to work out the best combination of in-office and remote, and we do it on a bespoke basis.”
