Buffalo, N.Y. – Phillips Lytle LLP has been named a finalist among Buffalo Business First’s “Best Places to Work.” The firm is one of 14 companies included in the Large Category for companies with 100-249 employees. Phillips Lytle will be recognized at a luncheon at Buffalo RiverWorks on Tuesday, March 14.

For the Best Places to Work program, employees are asked to complete the Quantum Workplace employee engagement survey, which was developed in 2003 by a panel of leaders in the field of employee engagement. The survey measures six key engagement categories focusing on communication, employee needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamic and trust in leadership. To gather statistically sound results, companies must reach a minimum level of employee participation, based on total number of employees, to be eligible to be a finalist.

Responses are compiled and evaluated. Companies are ranked according to their overall score, which is calculated by compiling raw data from the questions on a 1-6 scale (strongly disagree to strongly agree) to find an average score that is then indexed to a 100-point scale. The total number of survey responses is also factored into the overall score.

Winners are chosen 100 percent based on the results of the survey and in essence by the employees themselves.
