Highest Rated Law Firm Out of 45 Company Finalists Honored by the Hartford Business Journal for Employee Satisfaction

HARTFORD, CT (March 6, 2023) – Robinson+Cole received a second-place ranking among 16 large employer finalists selected for the Hartford Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut recognition. The designation honors companies who were identified as “doing the right things to keep employees interested, engaged and balanced” as determined by a survey administered by third-party research firm, Workforce Research Group.

Robinson+Cole was the highest rated law firm honored during the annual Best Places to Work Awards presented on March 2, 2023, in Plantsville, CT. This is the second consecutive year and ninth time the firm has been named a “Best Place to Work in Connecticut.”

“To once again be named a Best Place to Work in Connecticut is a tremendous honor and reflects our special community filled with people who bring their best and work as a team each and every day,” said Rhonda J. Tobin, Managing Partner, Robinson+Cole. “Our R+C family is dedicated to preserving our core values of collaboration, civility and inclusion. Everyone understands the importance of belonging, well-being, mentoring, and professional development, and by investing in one another, we are able to provide outstanding service to our clients and our communities. We are lucky to work with such talented and dedicated people who make it a pleasure to work together.”

The 2023 and 2022 Hartford Business Journal Best Places to Work in Connecticut recognitions are among a series of “best” workplace honors the firm has recently received. Robinson+Cole was named 2023 “Business of the Year” by the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut and was highly ranked among 50 law firms in the country listed in the 2023 Best Law Firms to Work For as part of Vault’s Law Firm Quality of Life Rankings. In addition, Robinson+Cole was named one of The Hartford Courant’s 2021 Top Workplaces—the only law firm to receive the distinction.

A total of 45 organizations were named finalists in the 17th annual list of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. Participation was voluntary and requested employees to complete a comprehensive 80-question survey facilitated by Workforce Research Group to “really understand the employee experience in each organization.” Employee engagement was noted at 93 percent for this year’s group of honorees, which is significant given that the national average is roughly 35 percent.
