The Denver Business Journal has recognized WilmerHale’s Denver office as one of the city’s “Best Places to Work.” The publication’s annual awards highlight companies and organizations “whose operations are providing the top workplace environment and engaging their teams.”
To identify the best places to work, the Denver Business Journal measures companies in a number of areas, including team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. With 40 employees in its Denver office, WilmerHale was recognized in the medium-size company category (25-49 employees).
In recognizing WilmerHale, the Denver Business Journal noted:
“Leadership connects personally with employees and encourages employee growth with mentorship and providing opportunities to be challenged by taking responsibility for a highly visible project or a new leadership opportunity. … The Denver office (also) commits time and resources to (non-profits such as) Denver Parks and Recreation …, Give Denver, Toys for Tots, Coats for Colorado and other organizations in the community.”
The Denver Business Journal also recognized the firm’s generous employee benefits, including extensive in-house and external training opportunities, a sabbatical program that offers two paid months off after 10 years of full-time service, back-up child and adult/elder care, paid time off policy for staff, and firm match and profit sharing programs.
