The Davis Brown Law Firm has been named the number one mid-sized workplace in the "Iowa Top Workplaces 2011" - a list of the best places to work in the state. Read more in the Des Moines Register. The firm also received a special ethics award.
The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from a 24-question employee survey that was conducted in March 2011. The survey measured employee satisfaction in six areas-including working conditions, career opportunities, pay and benefits, execution, management style and direction. Firm employees were also asked to provide comments about their workplace. The Davis Brown Law Firm was one of 35 midsize companies selected for the list.
"At Davis Brown, we work to provide the best environment possible for your employees," said Sharon K. Malheiro, senior shareholder and president of the firm's Board of Directors. "An award such as this recognizes the commitment that the firm has to supporting a balanced life that not only fosters professional success, but also supports individuals and families."
Top Workplaces recognizes companies that have an inclusive approach to business, which allows them to be more innovative, operate more ethically and serve clients more effectively. Overall, 117 companies participated in the program, conducted by Workplace Dynamics, LLP.
