Giving Back at Work

50The PBEye was thrilled to see three Law Firm Pro Bono Project Members Firms and Challenge Signatories make Fortune’s list of 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back: Alston & Bird*†; Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz*†; and Cooley*†.

Fortune enlisted the help of Great Place to Work, which surveyed employees at more than 600 companies about the difference they make at work, the meaningfulness of their jobs, and the impact they feel their employer makes in its community. Their evaluations also considered the generosity of each company’s community-oriented programs, relative to its size and revenue. As we have long known, a “do good, feel good” mentality in a workplace inspires all of us to seek a higher purpose in our day-to-day jobs.

We congratulate these three law firms for making Fortune’s list and have no doubt that their strong pro bono programs played a key role in their selection. Keep up the good work!
