Great Place to Work is pleased to announce the 2021 list of Best Workplaces in Professional Services. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work- Certified™ in the past year and work primarily in the Professional Services Industry. (Professional Services refers to any organization or profession in the tertiary sector of the economy that offers customized, knowledge-based services to clients. This includes doctors, lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, advertising professionals, to name a few).
Foreword by James Speakman, Managing Partner at Clark Wilson
Professional service providers are considered experts in their respective fields, and clients entrust them to act as their guide through matters ranging from the conventional to the most complex challenges with the highest stakes.
The Best Workplaces for Professional Services list represents 9,231 Canadian employees who were surveyed on 82 aspects of their experience on the job, including the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and the level of camaraderie among the team. This distinct recognition is based on the candid feedback of employees, and identifies companies and firms which exemplify inclusion in the workplace, regardless of position or rank.
As the Managing Partner of Clark Wilson, a law firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia with over 260 individuals, our goal is to exceed the expectations of both our clients and our own people. Our organizational culture is intertwined with the fabric of our core values and it is the foundation of every decision that we make. While 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, it is heartening to know that the strength of our firm’s culture helped bring the team closer together in a time of so much ambiguity.
Please join me in congratulating this year’s recipients of the Best Workplaces in Professional Services distinction.
