The New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) honored Gibbons P.C. with one of its “Outstanding Employer” awards at the organization’s annual Awards for Excellence Dinner on October 16, 2013.
The Outstanding Employer Award extended to Gibbons was based on the Gibbons Leadership Academy (GLA), a high-level program to identify the firm’s next generation of leaders and equip them with leading-edge techniques and practical instruction advance their careers to partnership and beyond and to guide the firm into the future. The GLA platform imparts the most valuable tactical and strategic instruction for raising their professional profiles, developing new business, providing stellar client service, effectively overseeing complex matters, and, eventually, honing the management and executive skills they need to successfully run the firm.
“To sustain the Gibbons legacy, the firm needs to identify and develop its future leaders,” says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of the firm. “The Gibbons Leadership Academy is an innovative and highly effective program to ensure that our tradition of excellence continues.”
To date, GLA has trained 80 percent of the lawyers at the firm (which includes 100 percent of its associates). The Gibbons Leadership Academy was the basis for several recent awards the firm has received, including placing 12th among large companies in the state for the 2013 NJBIZ “Best Places to Work in New Jersey” awards and placing 13th among law firms of all sizes nationwide for the 2012 Marketing the Law Firm “MLF 50” awards.
A select group of companies were also recognized with awards for Environmental Quality, Business Expansion, Outstanding Employer, and Public Service.
