WilmerHale has been named a Top Workplace for 2020 by The Washington Post for the seventh consecutive year.
This recognition is based solely on employee feedback to an anonymously conducted third-party survey by Energage Inc., which partnered with The Washington Post on the annual project.
The survey measured various aspects of workplace culture. They included the following categories:
- Alignment: where the company is headed, its values, cooperation, effective meetings
- Coaching: managers care about concerns, are helpful, encourage employee development
- Connection: employees feel appreciated, work is meaningful, working at full potential, clued-in to each other
- Engagement: productivity, retention, recruiting
- Leadership: confidence in company leaders
- Performance: execution, open-mindedness, innovation, clued-in leadership
- The Basics: pay, benefits, flexibility, training, expectations
“When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage.
For this year’s list, 200 companies, including businesses, nonprofits, government contractors, law firms and schools were included in the rankings under four categories: largest, large, midsize and small. Thirty companies made the 2020 large-size category, with WilmerHale ranking in seventh.
