GableGotwals may be known for its high-quality legal services with a firm of more than 70 attorneys, but what it may not be as well-known for are all the perks offered to employees.
In addition to paid time off for various community and civic activities, the firm hosts parties and social events that include spouses and guests. Employees can bring their children to work when school is closed, and an annual bonus program recognizes individual performance, not just length of service.
Each year in November, a firm-wide luncheon is scheduled to honor individuals for their years of service and to express appreciation for jobs well done.
While overtime is considered a no-no at GableGotwals, if it has to happen, it’s kept to a minimum. And meetings and staff-only events are limited to working hours only.
The company provides on-site personal development, stress management workshops, seminars and classes, as well as financial education workshops.
Stress reduction and fun is encouraged and organized from the ground up, as opposed to the top down. If there’s an organized sport on deck, the firm provides uniforms and subsidizes league participation.
As for water-cooler talk, it’s encouraged. Employees are urged to take short breaks away from their workstation and engage in friendly chats to help mitigate both physical and emotional reactions to stress.
This is GableGotwals’ second year as one of the Best Places to Work in Oklahoma.
