Fresh off its ranking by Business First as one of the area's "Best Places to Work," Goldberg Segalla LLP is being honored again, this time on the state level.
The local firm is on the 2013 list of "Best Companies to Work for in New York State," a program sponsored by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group, Journal Multimedia Corp. and The Business Council of New York State Inc.
Goldberg Segalla ranked 19th among large employers and was the only law firm to make the Top 20.
Established 12 years ago with seven partners and a small support staff, the firm now employs about 300, including more than 170 lawyers, and has 11 offices in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2012, it was in the Top 25 of the small/medium company category, for businesses with 15 to 249 employees. This year, the firm moved up to the large company category, which includes those with work forces of 250 and up.
Rankings are based on surveys of legal and administrative staff related to aspects of workplace satisfaction. The surveys focus on trust in the firm and its leadership; how individual contributions and teamwork are valued; and enthusiasm for exceeding the requirements of one's job.
Created in 2007, the annual Best Companies to Work for in New York State evaluates and ranks the best places of employment based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies.
