Akin Gump Named Among Top Workplaces in Houston

(Washington, D.C.) – Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP has been named as one of the top places to work in Houston, the firm announced today. 

The Houston Chronicle’s inaugural list of Top 100 Workplaces recognizes businesses nominated by their employees.  The findings are based on responses from 54,232 employees at 188 area companies to questions about the direction their company is heading, opportunities for advancement and relationships with managers, and pay and benefits.  The organizations on the list include public and private entities and nonprofits.  To qualify for inclusion, a company must have more than 50 employees in the Houston area.

Houston Chronicle publisher Jack Sweeney said, “The Chronicle is very proud to introduce our first Top Workplaces section in recognizing these outstanding Houston-area companies. What better rating system than one in which the employees do the rating.”

Chris LaFollette, partner in charge of Akin Gump’s Houston office, said, “Great workplaces are built on fairness, opportunities and dedication.  No matter the challenges, we lift each other up with encouragement and pass it on.  We are very proud to be named as one of the best places to work in Houston.”
