Castrén & Snellman Receives First Fair Employer Stamp from the Association of Finnish Lawyers
Castrén & Snellman is the first Finnish law firm to commit to the new employment principles published by the Association of Finnish Lawyers and has received the association’s Fair Employer stamp. The association published the first employment principles for the legal services industry on 30 September 2011. In the employment principles, the Association of Finnish Lawyers takes a position on, among other things, employee equality, workload and pay.
‘We reviewed our existing employment practices before committing to the new principles, and our practices were in line with the association’s policies. We have worked persistently to develop working conditions at our firm and have received outside recognition for the work we’ve done’, says Managing Partner Pauliina Tenhunen. Among others, Castrén & Snellman has received awards for being an ideal student employer and for its dedication to gender equality.
The new principles published by the Association of Finnish Lawyers will provide security for all lawyers. Lawyers at the start of their career, in particular, will benefit. The Fair Employer stamp is an excellent compliment to Castrén & Snellman’s goal to remain the most desirable employer in its field, and to be a good employer for lawyers that respects the rights of its employees.
