Baton Rouge, La.—The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report has named Phelps Dunbar’s Baton Rouge office as one of the 2018 “Best Places to Work.”

Overall, the firm ranked sixth in companies with 250 or more employees and was the highest ranked law firm in 2018. The firm has appeared on the Capital Region’s list of “Best Places to Work” since the inception of the program in 2014.

It is a testament to the unified environment we aim to provide for both employees and clients. In particular, our organization is firmly rooted in the Greater Baton Rouge Community and individuals are dedicated to giving back to the city they call home.”

"Best Places to Work” aims to identify, recognize and honor the companies benefiting the Baton Rouge economy, workforce and businesses.

That’s because they know that if their employees are happy and engaged on the job, then they’ll take ownership of their work and protect the brand—and bottom line.”

Each year, nominees complete an extensive questionnaire detailing benefits and policies and employees are asked to complete individual a surveys about his or her engagement and satisfaction with the company. The combined scores determine top companies and the final rankings.

The awards program is a project of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge SHRM, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. To read more about the 2018 “Best Places to Work”, click here.
