  • Germany


    Eversheds has been nominated for the azur Award 2017 in the category "education and training" and therefore counts among the employers which have performed particularly well in the field of legal education throughout the year. The winners will be announced within the framework of a festive award ceremony in Cologne on 16 February 2017.

    Azur, the career magazine of the JUVE publishing house, recognises law firms every year for their special commitment and dynamic development with regard to the promotion of young talents based on an extensive survey among applicants and associates, interviews with employers and discussions with HR managers. Awards will be granted in the categories "legal traineeship and internship", "education and training" as well as "diversity".

    For the nomination in the category "education and training", the azur editors particularly assessed opportunities for professional development, the training of soft skills and international aspects in the promotion of young talents in addition to a dynamic development in the education and training of lawyers during their first years of employment".

    Dr. Stefan Kursawe, founding partner of Eversheds Germany, who is responsible for HR matters of the German offices, says:

    "Our employees are our most important ressource. In order to promote their potential in a targeted manner, we have created our own education and training programme called "Eversheds Navigator. Through the Eversheds Navigator, we support our employees in their professional and personal development. We aim at learning together in a team and constantly developing skills, but also at promoting the individual personality of each employee. The nomination is a great success for us and shows that we have made considerable progress in the past 3 years in the area of learning and development. I am particularly delighted that our employees recognise our commitment. The extensive Eversheds training programme offers the associates many different training opportunities. In this context, we do not only focus on the individual progress with regard to the professional know-how but also on a constant development of social competencies. The international sales training and the Commercial Academy in particular promote entrepreneurial spirit and action."

    Eversheds is one of five nominated law firms in the category "education and training" and, at this stage, has already prevailed over numerous other law firms as well as legal departments, authorities and consulting companies.
