Gibbons Named One of the NJBIZ Best Places to Work in New Jersey for the 18th Consecutive Year
September 29, 2023
Gibbons P.C. ranked #7 among the “Best Places to Work in New Jersey,” moving up 12 spots over last year to one of its highest rankings ever and its 9th top 10 ranking. Gibbons was also the top-ranked law firm in its category on this annual list, published by NJBIZ, one of the state’s leading business publications. This is the 18th year in a row that Gibbons has been recognized in the “large company” category, having appeared on this list since its inception in 2005. The awards were presented at a dinner and ceremony on September 28 at the Event Center at iPlay America in Freehold, New Jersey.
“Our employees, both attorneys and non-attorneys, are undoubtedly our greatest asset, and we will always be committed to earning their dedication,” said Peter J. Torcicollo, Managing Director of Gibbons. “We also know that creating a positive workplace for them ensures that our clients – many of whom are also on this list – will continue to receive the top-notch service they have come to expect from Gibbons.”
“We are honored each and every year we are listed among the Best Places to Work in New Jersey,” said Patrick C. Dunican Jr., the firm’s Executive Chairperson. “We owe our continued success to our dedicated personnel, from the mailroom to the C-suite, and we celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this incredible recognition.”
The Best Places to Work program honors companies that benefit the state’s economy, workforce, and fellow businesses. This year, NJBIZ ranked participating companies in three groups: small (15 to 49 employees); medium (50-249 employees); and large (more than 250 employees). Companies from across the state entered the two-part nomination process to determine the Best Places to Work, which entailed an analysis of each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, along with an employee survey to measure each company’s employee experience.
This year’s nomination highlighted the firm’s “Gibbons Experience” program, a generous, innovative benefits package that adds to the extensive traditional benefits offered by the firm, with policies, technologies, and initiatives to support the firm’s personnel in both their career progression and work/life balance. The Gibbons Experience also features a number of employee appreciation events that provide Gibbons personnel opportunities to socialize, relax, and otherwise enjoy downtime at work or with work colleagues. These events, hosted throughout the year, include, among others, holiday BBQs, a brand-new “Mentoring Challenge” for associates and their director mentors, bi-monthly “Bagel Tuesdays,” a week-long Saint Patrick’s Day celebration, a health and wellness fair, and a holiday party in December at NJPAC for all employees. Additionally, in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm has continued to promote employee health and safety, flexibility, and the preservation of our cherished “Gibbons” culture.
Gibbons has been acknowledged as a great workplace by various other organizations and publications. The firm most recently was selected as a Great Place to Work®, in the Consulting & Professional Services Industry category, by the Great Place to Work® organization and Fortune magazine.
