Bennett Jones has once again been ranked one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People. This is the ninth consecutive year the firm has been selected as a winning organization.
Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is a special designation recognizing the employers that offer the nation's best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers. Top employers are Canada's leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.
This year's winners are congratulated for doubling down on their efforts to help students and recent graduates launch their careers during the pandemic.
Here are some of the reasons why Bennett Jones was selected as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People for 2021:
- Bennett Jones works with various post-secondary institutions to hire legal assistants and other practicum students each year—the four-week program includes in-house training, rotational assignments, mentoring and job-shadowing opportunities.
- The firm invests significantly in training and development, providing financial support for offsite training and university courses and seminars, and offering in-house mentoring for legal assistants, legal summer students and articling students.
The 2021 winners are announced in a special feature published in The Globe and Mail.
