Warner Again Named One of the Crain's Detroit “Cool Places to Work”

For the eighth consecutive year, Warner Norcross + Judd LLP has been recognized as a Crain’s Detroit Business “Cool Places to Work.”

Warner was selected for its commitment to work-life balance, its workplace flexibility and its excellent compensation and benefits package. Additional factors included its wellness programs and mindfulness coaching, its focus on fundraisers and engaging contests, its employee recognition and appreciation programs, on-site professional coaching, free education and fitness programs, veggie Wednesdays and corporate-sponsored events for employees and their families
One of the largest and full-service law firms in Michigan, with more than 230 attorneys practicing in eight offices, Warner attorneys work in 14 industry groups and 26 practice areas that cover virtually every aspect of law.
“We are gratified to again be included on the Crain’s list of cool places to work,” said Managing Partner Douglas A. Dozeman. “As a law firm, we strive to provide our attorneys and staff with the opportunity to engage in meaningful work for clients in an environment that is supportive, caring and fun. We recognize the whole person comes to work each day, and we work to ensure there’s balance between work and family obligations.”
Some factors that go into making Warner a cool place to work include:
  • Sponsored fundraisers and contests to spark creativity and competitiveness
  • Free or discounted tickets for local family entertainment or sporting events
  • Free food in break rooms, including bagels, fruit, granola and healthy snacks
  • On-site health coach, nutritionist and mindfulness sessions
  • On-site fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing and yoga
  • On-site biofeedback sessions to help teach employees how to better self-regulate stress
  • Paid time off for community service and volunteer work
  • Family-friendly benefits, such as adoption assistance, lactation facilities and eldercare assistance
Companies seeking consideration were administered two surveys. The first one asked company leadership about policies, practices and demographics. The second survey went to employees, and the data from that was analyzed by the Best Companies Group to determine the “Cool Places to Work” recognition.
Employers benefit from the summarized feedback from the survey completed by employees, which allows them to see areas where they are excelling, as well as areas for improvement. Additionally, winners receive benchmarking materials to see how they stack up against other companies.
Crain’s Detroit Business published the full list of those recognized on Aug. 4. Warner’s profile can be viewed here.
