Read why “It’s all about you”

Baker McKenzie offers a comprehensive, competitive benefits programme designed to support a balanced work and home life. We’ve achieved this by breaking the programme into categories: health, finances and lifestyle in order to examine and develop it in ways to enrich our people’s lives.

In order to deliver on our promise to our people, we invented the BakerWellbeing programme, which aims to create a culture that brings together our full range of health and wellbeing benefits. There are four pillars that are fundamental to fulfilling and maintaining a healthy lifestyle: mental resilience, diet, exercise and health. Through BakerBenefits our employees can receive a number of valuable services, such as independent advice on personal finances.

Tackling the issues of health and mental resilience, we offer our employees a full range of great benefits from private medical and dental insurance, to regular health assessments. We have an in-house GP in case of emergencies and flu vaccinations are made readily available.

For the financial side of the programme we offer a pension scheme, life assurance and income protection, because we believe that the best way for our employees to relax and do well in the Firm is to feel that they are financially secure. And just to make sure they get it all, we also offer season ticket loans, discounts and dry cleaning services.

When it comes to taking care of lifestyle needs, we offer gym subsidies, travel insurance, childcare vouchers, Zipcar services and Tastecards. Various in-house services have been introduced to support our employees and create a productive working environment. Because family matters we’ve turned to My Family Care to support our employees during those difficult times when they need help most. Whether it’s an emergency with childcare, dependent care or care for themselves at home, this benefit covers all the bases. If our employees need a nanny, childminder or nursery place when their usual arrangements fall through. Their covered. If caring for elderly parents or other family members and they need support in an emergency, My Family Care can help them out. Or if they are recovering from an operation and live alone, by engaging with My Family Care they can take the pressure off by providing help with some everyday tasks.

That’s what we mean when we say: “It’s all about you”.
