It is important to us to offer a work environment in which each individual not only feels challenged, but also encouraged and respected. As an established law firm with employees from different nations, we are in contact with people from different cultural backgrounds. We highly value the diversity of our employees. It is, therefore, our concern to offer everyone the same employment opportunities - regardless of nationality, ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity. We have been advertising job vacancies for some time now with the remark "f / m / d" gender-neutral. We base our decisions on personnel selection and career paths on objective, professional criteria. Should an employee still feel discriminated against, our equal opportunities officers are always available as trustworthy contacts.
We regularly recruit young people from within our own ranks, whether through an internship, training or dual degree. Training is therefore an essential part of our human resource work. With the KPP Academy, we have launched a first-class and comprehensive training program. If you have any questions about your career, our associates are always there to support you, who - like other experienced colleagues - support the successful development of our young people through feedback discussions. We also consider the great freedom that our young colleagues enjoy as an important factor of success, for example, when working with clients early on.
Satisfied employees are the key to success. We are therefore happy to take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitization to enable everyone to design their work as individually as possible and thus achieve a work-life balance and the compatibility of family and work. This means that not only associates but also partners can easily work part-time with us and, for example, adapt working hours to their respective living situation thanks to home office offers. We see this as an important step in paving the way for partnership, especially for women.
Environment and society
The issues of environmental protection and the sustainable use of resources are firmly anchored in our day-to-day practice. We try to work environmentally friendly at all times and, for example, keep CO2 emissions from travel, paper and electricity consumption as low as possible. Digital through almost paperless work is only one contribution that we are happy to make for our future. For this and for other environmentally friendly measures, our law firm has received the QUB seal of quality - quality association of environmentally conscious companies. Of course, we also take responsibility for society. We act according to the motto "think globally, act locally": Our law firm regularly supports local charitable organizations.
