For the fifth consecutive year, Jimerson Birr, a Jacksonville-based business law firm, has made the prestigious list of "Best Companies to Work For in Florida", and is the only law firm in the area to make the list.
Florida Trend Magazine publishes the list annually after researching and reviewing eligible Florida-based companies. Research includes evaluation of workplace policies and practices, as well as systems and demographics, plus a survey instrument to directly measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores in all areas determine the top companies and the final rankings each year.
Jimerson Birr's automatic contributions to employees' retirement plans, additional matching program, profit-sharing and bonus structure, along with generous paid-time-off, free daily snacks and beverages, and formal career development programs, were some of many employee benefits cited in the award determination. Beyond that, leadership at the Firm strives to foster an environment of creativity and camaraderie, with monthly teambuilding and social events for the staff hosted by an appointed internal events committee.
In its 10-year history, Jimerson Birr is no stranger to awards and recognition, including being named one of the fastest-growing law firms in both northeast Florida and the country, but managing partner Charles Jimerson is particularly proud of this distinction because of what it says about ongoing employee satisfaction.
"The success of our firm begins with our team," Jimerson said. "We share a genuine interest in the professional and personal development of our associates, and believe our results tell that story. When we take care of our people, they take care of us."
