Pawley’s Island, SC, November 1, 2023 – Stotler Hayes Group, LLC (“SHG”) today announced it has been Certified™ by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture and employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation. The certification is based exclusively on SHG employee feedback using the Great Place to Work® Trust Index Score.
Great Place To Work Recognition
Every year, more than 10,000 companies across 60 countries apply to get Great Place To Work-Certified.
“To be recognized as a Great Place To Work is a direct result of humbling accolades by our team. When we started the firm, we couldn’t believe we might be so fortunate to work in a practice area we enjoy with the best clients. As we grew, added to that was a dream we’d find a team we love who like us back,” said Elizabeth Spawn Stotler, Managing Partner at Stotler Hayes Group. “If this means we’re there – pinch us.”
Andrea Kirksey, Executive Director at SHG reflects, “Today, I am moved to be a member of this firm as we proudly receive the official certification as a Great Place To Work. Since joining Stotler Hayes Group in 2015, I have been continually impressed by the purpose, persistence, and people in this organization. One of the cornerstones of why SHG is a Great Place To Work rests firmly in our one-of-a-kind active listening culture. In my experience, it is not often that a law firm’s leadership seeks out consistent feedback from all members of the team with such grace and openness. This unique platform offers each person the opportunity to create and develop meaningful contributions across the firm. It is truly an honor to be certified for another year by the proclamation of our entire team!”
Great Place To Work Certification Process
Great Place To Work® certification process is rigorous, utilizing a data-based model, The Great Place To Work Trust Model™, for quantifying employee experience and assessing employee satisfaction in key areas, from credibility and respect to fairness and camaraderie.
“Great Place To Work® certification is a truly meaningful achievement for SHG,” reported SHG Managing Partner, Kelly Hayes. The certification process involves a multi-week process, including an anonymous, firm-wide survey of employee satisfaction, trust, credibility, fairness, respect, pride, and camaraderie, as well as a cultural audit of leadership effectiveness, innovation, development, and diversity. Hayes continued, “It truly reflects SHG’s values: our commitment to collegiality, transparency, and communication. It is a testament to every SHGer who contributes to the positive team culture and to the firm’s commitment to fostering connection, innovation, and the continuous development of our team.”
We are humbled by the feedback returned in the survey, notably that 100% of employees at Stotler Hayes Group say it is a great place to work, especially when this is compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
