Washington D.C. (March 31, 2020) – Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work” by the Washington Business Journal for the eleventh time. Sterne Kessler is counted in the “Extra Large Companies” category of businesses with 250 or more employees and is one of only three law firms on the highly esteemed annual list.
As noted by the Washington Business Journal, the “Best Places to Work in Greater Washington” list honors “companies that go beyond the norm to foster an enjoyable and meaningful work environment for their employees.”
“We are sincerely honored that our employees continue to recognize Sterne Kessler as a best place to work in Washington, D.C. year after year. And notwithstanding the fact that we are all working from home during the current Covid-19 crisis, we are doing our best to maintain our culture of collaboration and unity to support our employees’ well-being,” said Managing Director Michael B. Ray.
In addition to Sterne Kessler’s status as one of the premier intellectual property law firms in the country, the firm has a long-standing reputation as a great place to work as evidenced by repeated wins of this award and is further validated by the firm’s consecutive inclusion for six years on The Washington Post’s "Top Workplaces" list. That list is also based upon the results of anonymous employee surveys. Attorneys and staff are attracted to the firm not only for its friendly culture, but also for its top-tier work for a broad range of notable clients, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and support of impactful causes in legal, local, and global communities.
In August, the Washington Business Journal will host an event where specific awards and rankings will be given to the companies named to their annual list. The “Best Places to Work” employers are determined by quantitative research gathered from anonymous survey responses from employees across the DC metropolitan area. The survey is administered by third party employee engagement software company Quantum Workplace. More about the survey process and the full roster of recognized employers may be found here.
