Drew is Employer of Choice for the 13th Year!

14 Apr 2022

Drew has been named an Employer of Choice in Singapore for the 13th year by Asian Legal Business (ALB) in its annual survey on the region’s best law firms to work for. We have been the recipient of this accolade more than any firm in Singapore since the survey launched in 2008.

The Employer of Choice survey is open to employees of law firms, from the paralegal level right up to managing partner, and includes non-legal roles as well. It quizzes respondents on a variety of issues, ranging from career prospects within their firm to mentorship opportunities and work-life balance. The firms that made the list were selected not only on the number of recommendations, but also the quality.

ALB asked our Director Blossom Hing about retaining talent amidst the Great Resignation, in its accompanying feature. Blossom said “Drew’s philosophy has always been to treat talent as our top priority and we will continue to do so. Young lawyers join a team led by a senior lawyer and are mentored by lawyers within the team who have varying years of experience. An open-door and team-based system allows more experienced lawyers to constantly communicate with and guide the younger lawyers in a safe space, thereby ensuring that each lawyer is encouraged to constantly grow and develop into the next stage of his or her career with confidence. Our senior lawyers, having benefited themselves from the mentorship and training they received are committed to investing time and effort to understand the hopes, expectations and concerns of each member of their team. The close relationship among the lawyers within a team enables more senior lawyers to help make sense of the myriad of challenges faced by young lawyers and has been key to ensuring that we have done well on talent retention despite the challenges of the pandemic.”
