2020 EMPLOYER OF CHOICE
Northland law firm WRMK Lawyers has been named as one of New Zealand’s best legal employers, earning a spot on NZ Lawyer’s 2020 inaugural Employer of Choice list.
25 New Zealand firms were recognised as top ranking legal employers in terms of overall employee experience, with only one Northland firm making the cut.
The entry process saw the winners providing qualitative and quantitative information to demonstrate their achievements in the areas of remuneration, training and professional development, career progression, diversity and inclusion, access to technology and resources, communication, leadership, work-life balance, health and wellbeing, reward and recognition, and recruitment.
The report noted WRMK’s “non-hierarchical culture, work flexibility, diverse workforce and friendly team environment where people can enjoy coming to work.”
This latest accolade for the firm comes on top of WRMK making the NZ Lawyer Innovative Firms list earlier in 2020, and winning Regional/Suburban Law Firm of the Year and Employer of Choice (<50 Lawyers) Awards at the 2019 NZ Law Awards.
