Thynne + Macartney is honoured to have again been named as a finalist in Queensland Law Society's 2020 Workplace Culture and Health Award for Organisations.
The firm first won the QLS Equity and Inclusion – Large and Medium Legal Practice Award in 2011 and was also a finalist 2019.
The health and wellbeing of our people has been a priority at Thynne + Macartney throughout its 125-year history, along with a commitment to the communities of Queensland.
If our people are healthy and happy it reflects in everything they do – the quality of their work, the success of their relationships with clients and each other, and their positive contribution to the Queensland community.
Billable targets and requirements of our professional staff are set with regard to their lives and commitments outside of work and prioritise their mental and physical wellbeing.
Our culture is built around support of colleagues and friends. As well as supporting the professional development and continuing education of all our staff, we host regular social get-togethers for staff and families, social clubs and opportunities to meet clients and help lawyers build relationships for the future.
A commitment to the communities in which Thynne + Macartney works is part of our DNA. Everyone who works at the firm is very proud of the investment the firm makes in the community and we have been recognised independently by several organisations for our involvement. This culture of community mindedness is fostered in the workplace, and we encourage our staff to play an active role participating in their own communities.
The success of this approach is demonstrated by the long careers our partners, lawyers and staff have with the firm:
- 42% of our partners and lawyers have been with T+M for their entire career.
- 35% of our partners and lawyers have been with T+M for more than 10 years.
- 50% of our partners and lawyers have been with the firm for more than 5 years.
* Statistics as at December 2019.
