AJ Park named as a top legal employer in New Zealand

We are proud to announce that AJ Park has been named in NZ Lawyer’s inaugural Employer of Choice report celebrating legal employers across the country who go beyond industry standards to provide their people with a safe and engaging working environment.

The report lists the 25 top-ranking legal organisations in terms of overall employee experience and showcases firms leading the way with policies and initiatives that engage their staff.

To be considered, firms were required to provide qualitative and quantitative information to demonstrate their achievements in the areas of remuneration, training and professional development, career progression, diversity and inclusion, access to technology and resources, communication, leadership, work-life balance, health and wellbeing, reward and recognition, and recruitment.

The Employer of Choice report highlights some of the key factors that make AJ Park a great place to work.

An internal seminar programme is held on a weekly basis where all staff can pick up knowledge about IP- or business-related topics and issues. AJ Park’s professional staff also get additional support through the firm’s structured career pathway, giving them the opportunity for internal promotions, lateral pathways, and secondments.

AJ Park has in place robust IT systems and a secure, sophisticated, central document management system.

AJ Park ensures that work remains engaging and collaborative through its communication channels, including a range of newsletters; daily emails; Microsoft Teams; and intranet. 

Supporting a healthy work-life balance at AJ Park involves offering staff flexible working practices; generous parental leave payments; a day off on their birthday; and a range of regular social activities.

In commitment to its people’s health and wellbeing, AJ Park offers its people subsidised medical insurance; an annual fitness benefit; a healthy eyes policy and an employee assistance programme offering free external confidential counselling services; and other benefits.
