BC Top Employer 2017

DLA Piper (Canada) LLP is pleased to be recognized by BC’s Top Employers for the tenth consecutive year.

“We cannot expect to be a great firm for our clients without first being a great employer to our people,” said Robert Seidel, Q.C., Canada Managing Partner. “Our continued success as a leading law firm relies on our ability to provide a thriving workplace where everyone feels valued and respected and where there are opportunities and resources for professional growth. We are pleased to receive this recognition which reflects our commitment in this important regard.”

With six offices across Canada, the firm takes great care in ensuring all employees experience the same well-rounded support and inclusive workplace culture. In addition to offering competitive benefit packages, the firm provides in-house professional development programs for associates and staff as well as tuition assistance for external courses and seminars related to their current or potential career paths. There is practical support for achieving wellness and work-life balance, including an annual reimbursement for health-related activities, a popular Wellness Week with educational workshops and motivational initiatives, sponsorship of employee-organized sports teams, and flexible work accommodations. The firm also actively fosters a pervading pro bono culture among lawyers and engages staff participation in various national and local charitable programs.

The recruitment and retention of top talents for both legal and non-legal roles remains the firm’s top priority as we continue to pursue strategic, sustainable growth in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Selection of winners in the annual competition is determined by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, who evaluate employers on key criteria including workplace environment, benefits, performance management, skill development and community involvement.
