We understand that success is measured not only in the recruitment of attorneys and professionals with diverse backgrounds, but in their development, advancement, and retention. As a result, we provide several initiatives aimed at the retention and advancement of our talented professionals.
To foster diversity and inclusion, FaegreBD Consulting boasts a rich community of employee resource groups. These groups offer opportunities for our professionals that are connected by some common dimension of diversity, to come together to build relationships, identify and generate potential solutions to real or perceived barriers that interfere with their ability to realize their full potential, and to create opportunities to aid the firm in driving positive business results.
In support of our commitment to retain top talent and provide preeminent legal services, we recognize and affirm progressive policies that support work-life flexibility. Our professionals receive industry-leading parental leave benefits, flexible and reduced-hours scheduling options, private lactation support rooms, childcare referral service, back-up childcare benefits, and subsidized wellness resources, such as onsite flu-shots and retirement planning classes.
We believe that a sense of belonging and community is essential to retaining the best consulting professionals and staff. We also encourage, facilitate, and reward informal mentoring at all levels throughout the firm.
