Maddocks actively encourages a supportive and flexible environment for all employees. Our people also have access to the Maddocks Out & About privileges program and subsidised health insurance.

As a new-member firm of employer support group Pride in Diversity, our people recognise the importance of LGBTI inclusion and the board, executives and partners of our firm have committed to mapping out a strategy to enable the successful transition to best practice.

At Maddocks, diversity and respect are core values. We acknowledge the importance of diversity and what it brings to our people and clients. To us, diversity means more than gender, age, disability or culture. We are delighted to be on the path toward setting a clear path for ongoing support to our LGBTI employees.

In 2014, Maddocks received citation from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency as an Employer of Choice. This citation marked recognition from the group for the eleventh consecutive year.

Mark Henry Partner and Chairman

I’m Mark Henry, partner and Chairman at Maddocks. I’ve worked at the firm most of my professional life and have been Chairman twice. Identifying as a member of the LGBTI community at a time when it was not as widely visible, I have always been treated respectfully at Maddocks.

It is exciting for me to see the Maddocks’ Diversity and Inclusion Policy being formally implemented as part of our strategy for growth, by ensuring we have an environment which attracts and supports the best people we can to achieve our objectives. We see a culture of openness, diversity, creativity, technical excellence and commitment to each other and the firm as key to our future. Providing formal, strategic planning and support for our LGBTI employees helps to underpin and create such a culture.

I’m proud to recommend Maddocks as a place where everyone is valued for who they are and what they bring to the firm so that they develop personally and professionally, regardless of age, gender, race, culture, sexual identification, disability or personal circumstance.
