Succinctly, list the major accomplishments at your workplace that propelled your company to being one of the best places to work in 2014. We have implemented, and followed through at every instance, a strategy that every member of our team works together cohesively to ensure maximum client satisfaction, no matter what their position is with the company. This process improves overall morale, leading to everyone being able to achieve the goal of quality service at all times.
How do you communicate your company’s mission and vision so that each employee feels part of the firm’s future? Everyone on our team participates on major problem solving and long-term planning involving the firm to some degree. We are transparent in our dealings with all team members. Our employees know we have no hidden agendas when it comes to their status at work, and they know we support them every step of the way as they improve their professional capabilities and responsibilities.
What methods do you undertake to raise employee morale? We know we are in a business that is stressful. To that end, we engage in one-on-one discussions whenever needed to support our attorneys who face challenges regarding deadlines, clients, responsibilities and related matters. Whether doing this or formulating strategies as a team, everyone agrees to follow our set standards of maintaining a very collegial and cordial atmosphere.
What was your business’s average annual turnover rate between 2011 and 2014? We had two individuals leave in 2012 and one in 2013, but we added three to the staff by this year, so we are virtually the same as we were at the start of the three-year period.
What will you do to raise your scores even higher next year? We plan to do the unplanned more, meaning more spontaneous celebrations not tied to any specific occasions. If we’ve all had a busy week of work or achieved something great, we’ll close the office in the afternoon and go see a movie.
