Goldberg Segalla Earns National and Statewide Workplace Culture Awards for 2018

May 23, 2018

Goldberg Segalla has garnered three more workplace culture awards for 2018 — including repeat, top-tier placement on the Best Places to Work in Illinois and Best Companies to Work for in New York lists, as well as its first-ever ranking on the Inc. Media list of Best Workplaces in any industry and across the nation.

Inc. Media‘s third-annual Best Workplaces list noted that Goldberg Segalla has “proven that creating a collaborative culture and upholding values like teamwork and respect can be a successful growth strategy.” The award is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. in collaboration with Quantum Workplaces singled out only 285 winning companies.

For the second consecutive year, Goldberg Segalla has ranked among the top 10 large employers on the annual Best Places to Work in Illinois survey, sponsored by the Daily Herald Business Ledger, in partnership with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA — The Management Association, the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago, and the Small Business Advocacy Council.

The firm also earned a spot on the 2018 Best Companies to Work For in New York State list, its seventh consecutive placement. Goldberg Segalla ranked No. 14 among “Large Companies” this year — the only law firm in that category, and the highest-ranked law firm in any category. Created in 2007, the annual Best Companies to Work For in New York State evaluates the state’s best places of employment based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. The program is a partnership of New York State Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group, Journal Multimedia Corporation, and The Business Council of New York.

“The workplace accolades that we are earning locally, regionally, and nationally don’t happen by accident,” Managing Partner Rick Cohen wrote in a congratulatory all-staff email following Inc. Media’s announcement. “Even when this firm was just a concept — before it even existed as an actual entity — our fundamental vision was to create a workplace environment that departed from the stodgy, traditional, ‘me first’ law firm culture that many of us grew up in. We created this firm around a strong set of very simple, practical core values. But as good as our value system is, we know that it can only be as strong as the quality of the human beings that we ask to become members of this community.”

In addition to these recent rankings, Goldberg Segalla has earned numerous accolades for the strength of its culture built on the principles of teamwork, diversity, and inclusion. These include:

  • Top-20 placement among all small-to-medium service providers in the 2018 Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services list
  • Repeated placement on Fortune’s 100 Best Medium Workplaces, spanning all industries across the nation
  • Ranking among the 10 large employers in both Pennsylvania and Maryland, the top 15 in New Jersey, and the top 20 in Florida
  • Ranking as the No. 1 Best Place to Work among all large employers in Western New York, where the firm is headquartered
