Procopio Named a 2018 Top Workplace by the San Diego Union-Tribune

November 11, 2018 (San Diego) – Procopio was named today by the San Diego Union-Tribune as a winner of the 2018 Top Workplaces Award. The awardees are selected solely on employee feedback through the results of an anonymous survey, which measures aspects of workplace culture including employee engagement, alignment of work with mission, and company leadership. Procopio was the only law firm named to the Top Workplaces list.

“This recognition by the San Diego Union-Tribune provides confirmation that our sincere commitment to a top workplace culture is being recognized by our employees,” said Procopio Managing Partner John D. Alessio. “Our firm’s success derives from our people. We’re focused on ensuring a supportive and inclusive culture that allows us to best serve our clients and our community.”

A total of 70% of Procopio’s staff and non-equity partner attorneys responded to the survey, conducted by the Union-Tribune research firm Energage, LLC. That participation percentage exceeded the survey average of 60%.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Energage CEO Doug Claffey. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
