Barnes Roffe Diversity Survey 2021

BARNES ROFFE LLP

DIVERSITY SURVEY 2021 RESULTS

Every two years we undertake a confidential and no-obligation survey of partners and staff relating to the diversity of the firm with a view to understanding the diversity of the firm so that diversity in all forms can be promoted and obstacles to diversity removed.

As the survey is non-compulsory the results of the survey cannot be regarded as the whole picture. 55% of the total cohort of partners and staff participated in the survey.  The results published below are percentages in all cases of those that answered particular questions including those that answered, “prefer not to say”.

Barnes Roffe promotes equal opportunities for all and as far as possible flexible working patterns, remote working and part time working.  We are very proud of our diverse and talented workforce.
