Hupy and Abraham Repeats Honor as Top Workplace 2013
For the second year in a row, Milwaukee-based personal injury law firm Hupy and Abraham has been honored as one of the Top Workplaces in Wisconsin. WorkplaceDynamics, a Philadelphia-based company, conducted employee satisfaction surveys, analyzed the data and based on employee feedback, concluded that Hupy and Abraham is among the best small (149 or fewer employees) companies to work for.
Over 1,000 companies applied for inclusion and only 136 were chosen. Four law firms received recognition and, out of all the small businesses in southeastern Wisconsin, Hupy and Abraham ranks overall as the 34th best place to work, and top-ranking law firm.
Approximately 700 people attended the event honoring the Top Workplace winners, which took place on Friday, May 17, at the Italian Community Center. The crowd was a sellout, the event planners had to turn potential attendees away. Pamela Henson, the Sr. Vice President of Advertising for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, emceed the event while Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker gave a speech outlining Wisconsin’s economic progression over the past few years. Gov. Walker pointed out that, according to CEO Magazine’s Best States for Business list, Wisconsin ranked 41st in 2010 but jumped up 17 spots to 24th the following year. Wisconsin currently ranks 20th on the list, thanks to the success of growing companies like Hupy and Abraham.
Doug Claffey, the CEO of WorkplaceDynamics, took the time to explain the methodology behind the selections. According to their organization, the top three components that factor into employee satisfaction are connection, direction and execution. They found that employees want to feel appreciated by the company, have confidence in the leadership and see things get done in an efficient manner. Other essential elements include career training, management, as well as pay and benefits.
By excelling in all of these areas, Hupy and Abraham has once again earned its place among the Top Workplaces in southeastern Wisconsin.
