At Schoenherr we are committed to upholding the social principles of human rights, fair working conditions and adherence to workplace and industry health and safety standards, and are committed to supporting local communities in our jurisdictions and further afield.
In line with these social principles, we have an entrenched culture of inclusion and non-discrimination. We promote equal opportunities and equal treatment, regardless of the position a Schoenherr member has in the firm, regardless of age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, nationality, social background, personal relations, disability or religious belief.
Furthermore, we empower Schoenherr members through many internal development programmes. Some of these include the Schoenherr Learning Hub, legal internships, our Schoenherr Paralegal Pool, the Legal Assistant Programme and secondments to other Schoenherr offices. In short, from law students interested in a legal career, through to our business support and legal experts, growth of our human capital is an essential focus of ours.
In addition to empowering our members in these ways we also have flexible time models in place making a healthy work-life balance possible. The physical and mental health of our people is supported in many ways. The Vienna office provides the services of an occupational doctor, there are nap rooms and a fitness studio onsite. Participation in sports events is encouraged across our offices through, for instance, road running competitions where participants are sponsored by the firm. Our schoenherr4you offering includes many employee benefits, gifts and the like, and team events and larger company events fall under this umbrella too.
Importantly Schoenherr's offices support and sponsor various charitable organisations and are involved in civic initiatives and pro bono advisory.
