Fish & Richardson Receives Outstanding Workplace 2023 Award from People Insight

Fish & Richardson has been awarded People Insight’s Outstanding Workplace Award for 2023 in recognition of the firm’s commitment to building and maintaining an engaging and healthy workplace culture.

“Fish has an intentional focus on maintaining a culture of excellence that is collaborative, diverse, and vibrant,” said Chief Operating Officer Kristine McKinney. “That means investing in our people, understanding their needs, and providing a forum for two-way communication. We’re incredibly proud to be recognized by People Insight with this award and to know that we’re scoring high marks with our colleagues across the firm.”

The Outstanding Workplace Award is earned by organizations that achieve a top-quartile employee engagement score in People Insight’s employee survey. The award recognizes organizations that listen to employees, design strategies with people at the heart, and act on employee feedback to implement positive change. In its 2023 survey, Fish excelled in several key engagement level sectors, earning nearly 15% higher than the professional services norm.

Employee engagement is critical to cultivating a positive culture and supporting business and client success. According to People Insight, highly engaged teams are 21% more profitable and organizations with top engagement scores average 12% higher client satisfaction.

The engagement survey is one tool Fish uses to listen to and learn from employees. In addition, McKinney and President & CEO John Adkisson visit each U.S. office at least once per year to meet and hear from colleagues at all levels. Fish also recently engaged external ombuds services to provide confidential and informal resources to support employees in navigating workplace relationships and promoting conflict resolution skills. In addition, Fish is constantly evaluating and adding new benefits, wellness, and professional development offerings to promote the well-being of employees and their families.
