Atlanta Journal-Constitution Names Taylor English Duma One of the Top Workplaces
Atlanta, Georgia, May 2, 2011 – Atlanta law firm Taylor English Duma LLP Ranked Among Top 100 in Metro Atlanta's Top Workplaces The Atlanta Journal Constitution has selected Taylor English Duma LLP from nearly 500 nominees to be named one of metro Atlanta’s Top 100 Workplaces. The AJC surveyed more than 40,000 employees from the nominated companies and selected the 100 based on factors including: direction of the company, execution, work conditions, career paths, management, and pay and benefits. Employees were also asked to grade their workplace based on intangibles such as: “I love the people I work with”, “It’s like a family here”, “This is a great work culture”, and “I feel like I can make a difference.” Firm partner and corporate department chairman George Gaskin describes Taylor English as “both proud and humbled” by the AJC selection. “Our vision when we founded Taylor English was to build a firm that attracted the best lawyers and staff and give them the best platform from which to serve their clients. This recognition suggests we are well on our way to realizing that vision.” Taylor English attributes employee satisfaction and the firm’s continued ability to thrive in a down market to its innovative “horizontal” compensation model. The model provides an alternative to the rigid hierarchy of traditional law firms, attracting some of the nation’s top lawyers and delivering clients high quality service at lower rates than most large firms. The AJC's 2011 Top Workplaces list was published on April 17, 2011, and Taylor English placed fifth out of 50 in the Top Small Workplaces Category.
