Gibbons Named One of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Women
September 18, 2020
The Great Place to Work consulting firm and Fortune magazine have recognized Gibbons P.C. as one of 2020’s “Best Workplaces for Women.” These rankings are based on feedback representing more than 4.9 million employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Gibbons ranked #18 on this year’s Small and Medium Companies list and is the only law firm and the only New Jersey based company to be selected.
The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on survey results from employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Gibbons has been certified as a great workplace for five years in a row – every year the firm has participated in the program. Great Place to Work and Fortune have also ranked Gibbons as a Best Workplace for Diversity, in Consulting & Professional Services, and in New York, as well as, more broadly, a Best Medium Workplace since 2016.
“Gibbons is committed to advancing women in the workplace, and the Gibbons Women’s Initiative is a critical component of our efforts to create a more diverse attorney workforce and leadership team,” notes Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Gibbons Chairman and Managing Director. “We are extremely proud of the accolades we receive for our efforts from organizations and publications like Great Place to Work and Fortune.”
“Through their hard work, our women attorneys and staff remind us how strong the business case is for a workplace culture that values work/life balance, offers generous, family friendly benefits, and is broadly vested in women’s professional success,” notes June M. Inderwies, the firm’s Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer.
One of the most noticeable goals the firm has achieved in the years since launching the Gibbons Women’s Initiative (GWI) has been its recognition as an exemplary employer for women. In addition to the Great Place to Work and Fortune ranking, most recently, the firm was selected as one of WomenInc. magazine’s “Top 100 Law Firms for Women” for 2019. Also that year, Gibbons was one of only 17 firms selected to Working Mother magazine’s inaugural Hall of Fame for appearing on the publication’s “Best Law Firms for Women” list for at least ten years. Previously and most notably, Gibbons was named among the 2009 winners of the prestigious, international Catalyst Award, one of the preeminent corporate honors recognizing outstanding achievement in the advancement of women in the workplace. In 2011, the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) established its Gold Standard Certification. Gibbons was one of only 32 law firms nationwide to initially meet WILEF’s gold standard criteria for successfully demonstrating that women represented a meaningful percentage of influential roles at the firm.
Great Place to Work, a global analytics and consulting firm focusing on personnel and human resources issues, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experiences in their jobs. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, respect with which people are treated, fairness of workplace decisions, and extent of camaraderie among teams. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
