DEUTSCH KERRIGAN No. 1 BEST PLACE TO WORK IN BIG EASY
Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles is THE NUMBER ONE Best Place to Work in New Orleans according to New Orleans CityBusiness which puts the firm on top of its 2007 list of best places to work in New Orleans (Large Business Category). This is the first year the firm has topped the list although it has made the list for the past three years.
This year’s honorees were selected based on a survey of benefits offered, including average salary, health care, paid time off and employee programs, coupled with a brief employee survey.
KATRINA SUPER STAR:
In recent years, the firm distinguished itself during the Katrina aftermath by pulling all of its employees together early in the crisis through a backup website and Internet communications system that went into action almost immediately following the disaster linking employees who had spread out over more than a dozen states and, most importantly, continuing salary and other benefits until people could return to work.
PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT KEY:
Bob Kerrigan said that the firm and its partners care about their employees and want to see them grow in their jobs and hopefully into other jobs up the ladder. "We run our firm like the Marine Corps -- no distinction between officers and enlisted personnel when it doesn't matter. Everyone thinks for themselves. Everyone is a decision maker at one level or another."
A CityBusiness panel, based on independent surveys, ranked 50 honorees - 35 large companies and 15 small companies. An article on Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles will be appear in the December 17 issue of New Orleans CityBusiness.
