Legal Week Intelligence’s Best Employers Report 2017 canvasses the views of 4,000+ fee-earners in the UK and abroad on satisfaction with their law firms. The survey, now in its 14th year, asks staff to rate importance and satisfaction on a scale of 1 (not satisfied or not important) to 5 (very satisfied or very important) on 30 different aspects of employment – organised into professional, personal, management, career & development and reward. The firms that perform best are awarded the accreditation of ‘Best Employer 2017’. For more information, visit the Best Employers content hub or email Lara Rosenthal at lrosenthal@alm.com
