We were recently honored with an award by Seattle Business Magazine as a Top 100 Best Companies to Work for in Washington at its annual banquet on July 1, 2015 at the Washington State Convention Center. In the business category of up to 30 employees we were rated #5! This is extra special for each person at the law firm as we are the only personal injury law firm in the Top 100.
This award shows that we are a great place to work which, in turn, allows our talented attorneys and staff to achieve top-tier tough advocacy and compassionate counsel. We take care of our team members the way we want them to take care of our clients.
The results are based on confidential employee surveys and the level of employee participation. Surveys are broken down in 10 categories including, benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring and retention, executive leadership, performance standards, responsibility and decision making, rewards and recognition, training and education, and workplace environment.
The entire staff of Adler ♦ Giersch PS attended the awards dinner.
