Varghese Summersett has been named a “Best Company to Work for in Fort Worth” by Fort Work Inc. magazine, marking the second year in a row that the law firm has received this prestigious honor.
Varghese Summersett was recognized on Thursday, August 17, during an awards luncheon at River Ranch Stockyards, where hundreds of business leaders from greater Fort Worth gathered to celebrate the city’s most exemplary employers. The firm and the other award winners were also featured in the magazine.
“It’s truly an honor to receive this accolade because it’s based, in part, on the input of our team members,” said Partner Anna Summersett, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm. “We strive every day to provide our attorneys and staff with an engaging and rewarding work environment where they can feel supported, valued, and respected while pursuing their career goals. “
Varghese Summersett was among 45 companies selected based on their “remarkable workplace policies, practices, and employee-centered philosophies.” Each company underwent a comprehensive registration and survey process, which included employees being anonymously surveyed by Workforce Research Group.
The employees answered questions about employee benefits, work-from-home and vacation policies, wellness initiatives, diversity, and fun activities. The survey findings were then analyzed and used to create a list of the 45 of the most outstanding companies in the greater Fort Worth area.
During the award ceremony on Thursday, the program’s emcees touted Varghese Summersett for being one of the fastest-growing companies in the country by Inc. 5000 magazine, hosting an annual pickleball tournament, and offering a quarterly book club in which employees receive a cash bonus or time off for participation.
Managing Partner Benson Varghese said those highlights just scratch the surface of the firm’s commitment to creating a culture where employees can thrive and be fulfilled.
“We understand that our team is our greatest asset and the driving force behind our success,” Varghese said. “We want them to enjoy coming to work every day. That’s why we are committed to a firm culture that promotes collaboration, rewards excellence, celebrates achievements, and encourages everyone to be their best selves.”
