OGEJS Named to "Best Places to Work in Georgia," AGAIN!!!Posted November 10, 2009 in News
Holy Smokes! For the second consecutive year Georgia Trend magazine has named Owen, Gleaton, Egan, Jones & Sweeney, LLP, to its Honor Roll of "The Best Places to Work in Georgia." Read the full article at Georgia Trend's web site. In the November issue of the magazine, OGEJS was the only law firm honored for 2009.
Each year Georgia Trend selects "The Best Places To Work in Georgia" based on the opinions of the experts - the people who work in Georgia's businesses, professional offices, governmental agencies, healthcare institutions and nonprofits.
Georgia Trend wants to know who the state's best employers are and what makes them the best. Is it the salary, the benefits, or the training they offer? The working environment? Co-workers and colleagues? The sense of mission, or the chance to make a difference in a community or a profession?
As it turns out, all of those are important, and all are mentioned frequently by employees who nominated their companies as the best. Georgia employees clearly like a team concept, and many mentioned a family atmosphere. But a word that appears over and over in the responses is "respect." Respect for employees, respect for customers and respect for the work being done - whether it's commerce, philanthropy or civic betterment.
In response to the magazine's invitation, Georgia employees were given the opportunity to nominate their employers - by online ballot - and asked to tell Georgia Trend what makes their firm a good place to work. From the responses, the Georgia Trend editorial staff selected 15 companies whose employees convinced them they merited inclusion in the first Honor Roll.
The partners of Owen, Gleaton, Egan, Jones & Sweeney, LLP, were touched and honored that our employees thought enough of our efforts as employers to nominate us for this recognition. That was the true honor. Making the final list, for the second consecutive year, was just icing on the cake.
