Alston & Bird has been honored by People magazine as one of the country’s top companies that have succeeded in business while also demonstrating respect, compassion, and concern for their communities, their employees, and the environment.
In People’s first-ever survey of the top “50 Companies That Care,” Alston & Bird ranks No. 26 and is one of only two AmLaw 100 firms recognized by the publication.
As noted by People’s editor-in-chief in introducing the awards: “It's a pleasure to celebrate companies that take special care of their employees and communities, and to tell the inspiring stories of the workers and families who've benefited from these firms' compassion and respect.”
The survey was conducted in partnership with Great Place to Work® based on responses from more than 350,000 employees who were asked to rate how their companies treat them on a day-to-day basis. The list also takes into account employees’ personal stories about the difference their workplaces have made in their lives and in their communities – and the generosity of their organizations’ benefits, financial donations, and volunteerism.
The ranking is the latest in a series of awards recognizing Alston & Bird’s caring and inclusive workplace. Other recent accolades earned by the firm include Fortune’s 2017 “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” “50 Best Workplaces for Diversity,” and “50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back.”
