MIAMI (July 30, 2009) — McDermott Will & Emery LLP proudly announced that it was named one of Florida’s “Best Companies to Work For” by Florida Trend magazine. One hundred companies were recognized in small, medium and large company categories, and McDermott ranked 15th in the small business category in Miami.
"We are so proud of this honor. Our employees are what drives our success. Satisfied employees deliver a much higher level of client service and that is what we at McDermott are all about. Our clients really enjoy their interaction with everyone on the McDermott team," added Ira J. Coleman, partner-in-charge of McDermott’s Miami office.
To qualify for this ranking, the companies are required to complete a two-part survey process. The first step consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Then, employees were surveyed to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process.
The Best Companies to Work For in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by a number of prominent organizations, including the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC), and the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The rankings will be published in the August issue of Florida Trend. For a complete list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, go to www.FloridaTrend.com/BestCompanies.
