Optimum Plan: you will have our full support
Garrigues has designed a plan that enables all firm personnel who have recently become parents and need to adapt to the needs of their child to reduce their working hours for a period of one year after the end of their maternity/paternity leave, with no reduction in pay, with this period still counting, for all purposes, towards their professional career.
The firm is committed to achieving a work/life balance. In my case, I was able to take advantage of the Optimum Plan in the year following my return to work after maternity leave. The experience was highly satisfactory. The plan enables you to organize your work in a flexible way, allowing you to reduce your working hours. Even so, I remained involved in major M&A deals, which was one of the main reasons I chose Garrigues when I completed my degree. It is a pleasure to work for an organization that is capable of anticipating and adapting to the needs of its personnel during major milestones in their life, such as having a baby. I am also proud to work for a firm that has pioneered the implementation of these kinds of measures, which show that achieving a work/life balance does not come at the expense of professional excellence and client dedication.”
