The employees of Thompson Coburn have again rated the firm as a Top Workplace in the St. Louis area.
The annual rankings are produced by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and WorkplaceDynamics LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Thompson Coburn was awarded the designation last year as well.
“The success of our law firm, like any business, depends in large part on providing our people with the environment they need to do exceptional work,” said Thompson Coburn Chairman Tom Minogue. “That’s a value built into our culture at Thompson Coburn, and it’s why we are so proud again to have received such high marks from the talented people who work here.”
WorkplaceDynamics bases its Top Workplaces rankings solely on employee feedback. Data is gathered through a 22-question survey that focuses on three critical elements of the workplace: organizational health, employee engagement and job satisfaction.
Thompson Coburn’s employee-focused initiatives include a comprehensive benefits package, a highly competitive 401(k) profit sharing plan, and an award-winning wellness program. In 2014, the firm was an honoree for the St. Louis Business Journal’s Healthiest Employers awards. It was also named a finalist for the Business Journal’s 2015 “Best Places to Work” list.
“As Thompson Coburn continues to grow across the country, from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles, the importance we place on making sure all of our employees are engaged and satisfied could not be greater,” Minogue said. “This honor is affirmation that we are on the right path. We will continue our commitment to our employees and to a workplace that produces exceptional value and legal innovation for our clients.”
Thompson Coburn was ranked in the survey’s “Midsize” category of companies with 150-499 employees (based on employees eligible to take the survey). The Top Workplaces results were published June 28 in a special section of the Post-Dispatch.
