The Washington Post Names Kelley Drye a Top Workplace for Fifth Year in a Row
June 28, 2018
Kelley Drye & Warren LLP has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2018 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area. Selection is based on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. This year’s honorees include government contractors, law firms, nonprofits, schools, and businesses.

“Overwhelmingly, employees of the companies honored on The Post’s Top Workplaces list not only value their workplace’s culture, but they also feel confident in the direction that their companies are going,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “The standouts on this list excel because they focus on engaging their greatest asset: their people.”

“I am delighted that Kelley Drye was recognized as a top place to work in the D.C. area for the fifth year straight and hope this tradition continues for many years to come,” said Kathy Cannon, managing partner of the firm’s Washington office. “A law firm is only as good as its people and ours work hard on behalf of our clients and maintaining a collegial culture. I am proud that we have built and sustained a wonderful workplace.”  

Kelley Drye’s Washington, D.C. office offers traditional benefits as well as fun special events and traditions. The office’s commitment to the community is one area that truly sets the firm apart. In 2017, a Secretarial/Administrative Committee was launched to organize volunteer opportunities open to staff and attorneys including sandwich making sessions for Martha’s Table to distribute to the local homeless population. Each year, two associates lead the annual Generous Associates Campaign benefitting the Legal Aid Society. The Kelley Drye cookbook debuted in 2017 with all employees invited to contribute a favorite family recipe and then sold with proceeds donated to a local shelter or food kitchen.
