RONKONKOMA, NEW YORK – Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a premier law firm with offices across the spine of Long Island, has been named a Newsday 2019 Top Long Island Workplace based solely on employee feedback. The anonymous survey, administered by research partner Energage, LLC, measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to gauge employee satisfaction.
“There are few awards given in today’s environment that truly mean something – this is one of them as it came from a confidential vote placed by our employees,” said CMM Managing Partner Joe Campolo. “It’s something we should all be proud of, as it validates everything we set out to be as a firm.”
“My manager encourages my ideas and listens to me when I disagree or have another opinion,” reported one employee. “In past jobs, I felt like my opinion didn’t make a difference.”
CMM offers unparalleled opportunities to grow professionally, be challenged, and work with sophisticated clients and colleagues. The firm invests in employees’ professional development at all levels with training on a variety of topics. CMM’s marketing and communications initiatives have raised the bar for Long Island firms, offering superior opportunities for lawyers and professionals to gain visibility in the business community.
Giving back is an integral part of CMM’s DNA, with numerous fundraising and volunteer activities throughout the year through the firm’s charitable arm, CMM Cares. In their survey responses, employees reported a fun and active firm culture with plenty of activities for everyone. The firm rewards staff for their hard work with weekly hot breakfasts, monthly catered team lunches, an annual firm BBQ, a luxurious holiday party, and more. The firm established a Culture Committee made up of a rotating group of employees to ensure that activities are varied and to give the team a voice.
“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”
