|Our students tell us that they really enjoy working for Stikeman Elliott not only because of our high quality work and excellent support resources, but because of our exceptional firm culture. We're an extremely friendly, exciting, and informal place to work. We embrace diversity, value a range of talents and backgrounds, and encourage you to be yourself.
We have a tight knit team which very much enjoys working and having fun together. Part of our team building happens through the many fun activities that we hold throughout the year. Our events are diverse and can be enjoyed by all. Here are a few examples:
Celebration Events: Welcome and farewell parties for our summer and articling student groups; a welcome reception for new associates; a winter carnival for families; and a summer social event and year-end dinner/dance for firm members.
Sports: Past events have included squash, soccer, ping pong and ball hockey tournaments where students, associates and partners square off against each other; outings to Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Raptors games; co-ed softball team and a lunchtime pick-up hockey team; and, rock climbing.
Arts: Past events have included an evening at Cirque du Soleil and at Jamaoke, a live band karaoke studio, and jam session.
Dinner Events: We hold several dinner events over the year for our students and lawyers where we're able to enjoy many of Toronto's great restaurants. For example, we hold a quarterly dinner for our corporate department members and we hold monthly dinners at a diverse range of restaurants for our articling students with lawyers from different practice areas.
Charitable Events: Students and lawyers participate in a number of social events and activities to benefit various charities, including: the United Way; various clothing and food drives; and charitable sports events/tournaments.
Other Team Building Events: Video game and board game night; firm euchre and poker tournaments; cooking class and dinner; offsite department retreats; and mingling hour at the end of the day every Friday for lawyers and students to connect, relax and unwind from the week.
