RWK Goodman is ranked 30th in the Sunday Times 100 and rated ‘Extraordinary’ by Best Companies

RWK Goodman is one of just six law firms from across the UK to be awarded the coveted three star ‘extraordinary’ rating by Best Companies in 2017.

The firm has also been ranked 30th in the Sunday Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For 2017, climbing 15 places.

Speaking after the rankings were revealed at an awards ceremony held in London yesterday (23 February), Graham Street, managing partner at RWK Goodman, said: “We are delighted to have achieved Best Companies’ highest level of accreditation and to have climbed 15 places to be ranked 30th in the Sunday Times 100 top employers’ league table.

“This award, which is independently judged based on confidential feedback from our lawyers and support staff, is testament to the environment and culture we have worked so hard to achieve and is reflected in the dedicated service every member of our team is committed to providing to our clients and the wider communities we serve. Our growing reputation as lawyers ahead of the curve is only possible by nurturing, motivating and developing our most valued asset – our people.”

In the independent survey which informed the league table, RWK Goodman was ranked 17th for ‘personal growth’, 24th for ‘giving something back’, and 26th for ‘my team’.

Other highlights included the announcement that 80 per cent of the 355 lawyers and staff from RWK Goodman who were polled, said they ‘wouldn’t leave the job tomorrow’.

Launched in 2001, The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For is the most comprehensive analysis of workplace engagement, opinion and satisfaction in the UK.

RWK Goodman, which employs around 450 people in Bath, London, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, is one of six UK law firms to have achieved ‘extraordinary’ status in 2017 - the top accreditation awarded by Best Companies to acknowledge workplace excellence.
