Atlanta (March 2019) – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper’s 2019 Top Workplaces competition again recognizes Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP, as one of the area’s best companies. Ranked at #14 in the medium-sized category, MMM placed higher than any other law firm in its division, which has been a pattern for several years running.
The list is based on employee feedback gathered from thousands of Metro Atlanta workers through a survey administered by the AJC’s research partner Energage, LLC, a provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. Those surveyed judge their employers on traits including organizational health and company culture. Individual factors the survey considered included a company’s connection with its people, alignment to mutual goals, overall effectiveness, leadership, and employee engagement, as well as basics such as pay, benefits and work-life balance.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Preserving MMM’s culture is one of the firm’s top priorities. Managing Partner Simon Malko cites it as one of the firm’s strongest differentiators.
“People at MMM treat each other with respect and give each other the opportunity to grow as professionals; plus, senior attorneys take a personal interest in providing opportunities and assistance to younger attorneys,” Malko has said. “I am committed to maintaining our identity as we continue our strategic growth.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage.”
The midsized category, in which MMM is honored, includes companies between 150 and 499 employees.
