Linklaters has announced changes to its salaries, bonuses and benefits in an attempt to create a sustainable and attractive recruitment and retention model. The changes includes added bonuses, an extra holiday and one day a week working from home for all qualified lawyers. The firm is going in the same direction as Allen & Overy by publishing salary information at two levels, one with a bonus for median performers and another bonus for high performers. For example, a Linklaters NQ who is a median performer will be in line for £81,000 but their higher performing counter parts will be in line for £91,000. Linklaters has also increased its leave policies, from 25 to 27 and staff are now entitled to take a day off in the month of their birthday. All changes will take effect on the 1st of May 2016.
