Gibbons Named One of the Best Places to Work in America by the Society for Human Resources Management
June 23, 2008
Gibbons P.C. has been ranked among the top “25 Best Medium-Size Companies to Work for in America,” which is compiled by the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and the Great Place to Work Institute, the same organization that produces the FORTUNE “100 Best Companies to Work for” list. Gibbons is a Newark-based law firm with offices in New York City; Philadelphia, PA; Trenton, NJ and Wilmington, DE.
Gibbons was the only New Jersey-based company to receive this award, which was presented this morning at an awards ceremony at the Annual SHRM Conference in Chicago. The firm will also be featured along with the other winners in the July issue of HR Magazine.
While the firm has earned regional honors in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for being among the “Best Places to Work,” this is the first year Gibbons has appeared on this prestigious list, which ranks the best companies nationwide based on a number of criteria. Hundreds of companies participated in this process, vying for a spot on the “25 Best” list. The application included a 57-question employee survey, a comprehensive management questionnaire, and the submission of key company publications and materials. Employees’ survey responses counted for two-thirds of each company’s total score, while the remainder of the score was the result of the Great Place to Work Institute’s evaluation of companies in five areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
“Gibbons is especially honored to be to be recognized by a professional organization whose entire focus is human resources, benefits, employee relations, and the entire workplace experience,” said Patrick C. Dunican, Jr., the firm’s Chairman and Managing Director. “This honor is a testament to the success of the ‘Gibbons Experience,’ the firm’s unique and generous benefits package, as well as to the incredibly gifted, talented and dedicated people who work here and make Gibbons the firm that it is.”
