October 4, 2017 | lmsXpect3 The Jaklitsch Law Group has been named as one of the 2017 Best Employers in Maryland. The awards program was created in 2017 and is a project of The Daily Record, Maryland SHRM State Council, Inc. and Best Companies Group. This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maryland, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Employers in Maryland. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Maryland and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. The list of the inaugural Best Employers in Maryland and how they rank will be revealed for the first time by The Daily Record in their November 17 publication.
