BATON ROUGE, La. – Phelps Dunbar earned a spot as one of the top 10 best places to work in Baton Rouge as recognized by the Baton Rouge Business Report, Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group.

The firm’s Baton Rouge office has been on the list since the program was created in 2014 to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Baton Rouge, benefiting its economy, its workforce and businesses. A total of 50 firms are honored this year, of which 30 are in the small and mid-sized category and 20 in the large category where Phelps appeared.

Phelps Dunbar initially completed an extensive questionnaire about its benefits and policies. Each employee individually completed a survey about his or her engagement and satisfaction at the workplace. Survey questions covered areas such as corporate culture, training and relationship with supervisor. The employer and employee surveys were then combined to form a set of data which enabled the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating companies.

Phelps Dunbar’s Baton Rouge office was the first regional office opened by the firm and has been in operation since 1984.
