For the third year in a row, Phillips Murrah has been recognized as a Top Workplace in Oklahoma. For 2017, P|M was the only law firm listed as a Top Workplace, and was also recognized as the highest year-over-year improver of the list’s category of “Genuine Appreciation” among company employees.
“Our Firm really cares about our work environment and tries to be receptive to requests and issues, which gradually makes our workplace better in ways that are meaningful,” said Tom Wolfe, Phillips Murrah President and Managing Partner. “That these efforts are recognized and appreciated by the people who work at Phillips Murrah is the best outcome.”
Phillips Murrah, an Oklahoma City law firm that employs 111, rose to No. 21 from No. 29 last year. The firm led improvements in the statement area, “I feel genuinely appreciated at this company,” up by 7 percent.
Phillips Murrah spokesman David Rhea attributes his law firm’s gains to the company’s continued responsiveness to requests and issues as they arise.
“Congeniality was literally one of the firm’s founding principles when we started in 1986,” Rhea said. “So that type of culture/atmosphere is just sort of baked into the cake.”
On December 10, The Oklahoman newspaper published their annual Top Workplaces list. In determining the defining criteria of Top Workplaces, The Oklahoman partners with the Philadelphia-based company, Energage, which evaluates companies across the country, pertaining to internal components of healthy workplace dynamics.
Every year, the newspaper encourages local participants in Oklahoma City to nominate businesses for the program. The methodology of candidate evaluation is determined from anonymous surveys, detailing employee satisfaction, company values, internal communication, leadership and other various determinates.
