Gibbons Named One of the NJBIZ Best Places to Work in New Jersey for the Ninth Consecutive Year
May 12, 2014
Gibbons P.C. has placed ninth in the “Best Places to Work in New Jersey” rankings by NJBIZ, the premier weekly newspaper covering business in New Jersey. This is the ninth year in a row Gibbons has been ranked one of the best places to work in the state in the “large company” (250+ employees) category. The awards were presented at an evening awards ceremony on May 1 at the Hyatt New Brunswick.
The Best Places to Work program is intended to identify, recognize, and honor companies that benefit the state’s economy, workforce, and fellow businesses. More than 850 people attended this year’s program, which ranked 100 companies in two groups: 62 small/medium companies (25-249 employees) and 38 large companies.
“The enthusiastic response of our employees to the Best Places to Work survey has earned us a place on this list for the past nine years,” notes Patrick C. Dunican Jr., the firm’s Chairman and Managing Director. “We strive to create a positive workplace so that our clients – many of whom also regularly appear on this list – can continue to receive the exceptional level of service they have come to expect from Gibbons.”
The nomination Gibbons submitted highlighted its “Gibbons Experience” program. The Gibbons Experience is a generous, innovative benefits package that adds to the exhaustive list of traditional benefits offered by the firm and encompasses other policies, technologies, and initiatives to support the firm’s personnel in their career progression and in their work/life balance. In its write-up on the final award, NJBIZ focused on “Gibbons Cares,” the firm’s dedicated community outreach and pro bono program, which encourages employee feedback and project leadership and fosters the sense of teamwork necessary to achieve exceptional results.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in New Jersey. Part one, worth 25 percent of the total evaluation, comprised an analysis of each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Part two of the process consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, totaling approximately 75 percent of the evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
