Recently, the Sun Sentinel partnered with Workplace Dynamics and surveyed employees all over South Florida, on the hunt for the best workplace. More than 9,000 people were asked a series of questions that all measured workplace engagement. As the Sun Sentinel explained, a healthy level of engagement (measured by factors like connection, alignment and execution) leads to happier, more productive employees who do meaningful work. From the survey, only 35 companies were chosen as a 2016 Top Workplace in South Florida. And sitting at the top of the list is Steinger, Iscoe & Greene.
Since the law firm was founded in 1997, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene has been encouraging their employees to be connected.They don’t just want bodies to fill desks; rather, their goal is to teach, support and guide every single person who works for them so they can better help every client who walks through the doors.
As founding partner Michael Steinger said, “We are at the office, spending time with our co-workers, more than we’re home with our family. We strive to make the time spent at work more comforting — somewhere we want to come and work hard with each other every day.” He added, “When you’re having a good time, it doesn’t feel like work.”
From work to play, the employees of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene do a lot together — including a cruise to the Bahamas. Intake Director Kelly Diaz, who has been with the firm for almost 20 years, puts it this way: “[We] do things to make us feel like a family. It’s enjoyable to be here.” That’s important to Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, since a good law firm will see very little turnover. After all, a personal injury case can take years to resolve, and having the same team on it throughout the process means a much higher rate of success.
Being at the top of the Sun Sentinel’s list of best employers in South Florida is a high honor. However, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene say their top priority will always be helping their clients get the full compensation they deserve after a personal injury.
