As a leader in our field we are rightly held to high standards in all we do. We are committed to inspiring the trust of our stakeholders by making Responsible Business a central part of our strategy.
We believe that our licence to operate, the sustainability of our business and the achievement of our vision are dependent on our ability to inspire trust and earn the confidence of all our stakeholders – our clients, our people and civil society. To do this we must act responsibly, creating long-term value and supporting their future success.
What we hear from our staff, clients, recruits, and suppliers – is that they have an expectation that we act responsibly. Not just doing our best for our clients but also working in a way that brings benefit to the broader business environment and civil society.
We have over 6,000 people working for the firm, hugely talented and with a fantastic range of valuable skills and experience. Together, we can really make an impact.
There’s also an important point here about individual development. Our people who are involved in this type of activity – whether it’s pro bono advice, mentoring local students, or working alongside clients on an environmental initiative – all have a much broader, more considered view of business life, and develop a wider range of really valuable life skills and business skills. For our lawyers, it’s a great way for them to understand the context beyond the immediate confines of the transaction or case.
Feeling that you can have a positive impact on some of the more pressing issues facing society is also hugely motivating, and that’s an important aspect of ensuring that everyone here feels that Clifford Chance is a really great place to work.
