My Manager
My Manager

Addleshaw Goddard's Managers provide clear vision and direction to their team members to enable their team to understand their role and their value to their team. One of their core values is that the Firm is open and honest, and they expect their line managers to listen to their employees and ensure that they are open to considering any queries or concerns that they may have. Their managers explain their decisions and actions and give people an opportunity to respond. Their Managers devote time to coaching their team members and are objective and fair in the way they assess and reward performance. They expect their Managers to provide timely feedback on an open, honest and constructive basis. Feedback sessions are important as it helps an individual understand how they are doing and what is required of them. Importantly, this acts as important upward communication tool so managers can receive feedback and ensure that what they are asking is realistic but also provides stretch and development for the individual.

A current example of how they support their lawyers is their Lawyer of 2014 programme. This is about equipping each of their fee earners to have the skills and expertise to be able to make a positive contribution to their business in a way that is aligned with their 2014 objectives. They have identified a number of key stages of an Associate's career, namely: New Associate, Associate Level 1, and Associate Level 2 and moving on to Managing Associate promotion stage. Their development programme has been built around each of these stages. They were one of the first law firms in the UK to introduce the MA level our programmes mark a stage in an associate’s career; all have been specifically tailored to Addleshaw Goddard, and are very practical and delivered by a combination of internal and external experts. The programmes have been, and will continue to be, benchmarked against what is offered by other leading professional services providers.
Fair Deal

Many of Addlesdhaw Goddard's teams arrange their own events to motivate employees encourage team building and generally have fun outside of the workplace. At one of their recent secretarial forums, a very popular idea was discussed and then acted upon - a Pamper Evening was organised by a small team of PAs for all of their colleagues in the London office. A number of suppliers such as Clarins, Benefit, Virgin Vie, were invited to the offices in order to provide services such as make overs, massages and manicures for the PA Team. As well as the PAs being pampered, they were also given an opportunity to meet new colleagues and network with existing ones in a relaxing environment. A partner also took the opportunity to thank all of the PAs for their hard work. The idea was so successful, the Manchester office have also held a Pamper evening and one is scheduled for their Leeds office.
