For the second consecutive year, Alston & Bird has placed No. 1 among law firms in People magazine’s survey of the top U.S. companies supporting their employees and their communities.
In People’s 2021 survey of the “100 Companies That Care,” Alston & Bird ranks as the top law firm and No. 36 overall among the companies identified as having gone above and beyond to create positive workplaces for their staff and the community at large. Additionally, this is the fourth time in the five years since the survey’s inception that the firm has been recognized for contributing to the community through volunteer groups, nonprofit organizations, charity, and other means.
As noted by People, the rankings highlight those companies that support their people and communities in a variety of ways — “from showing compassion for their employees to giving back to their communities to putting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the forefront.”
The survey was conducted in partnership with Great Place to Work®, which assessed more than 5 million employees’ experiences of how their workplaces have made a difference in their lives and in their communities. The rankings also reflect the generosity of each organization’s benefits, philanthropy, and community support.
The ranking is the latest in a series of awards recognizing Alston & Bird’s exceptional workplace culture. Other recent accolades earned by the firm include Fortune’s 2021 “100 Best Companies to Work For®” and Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 “Corporate Equality Index.”
