For the second year in a row, Harrison Pensa LLP has been named a top workplace by London Inc. magazine. It is a testament to the remarkable staff of the firm that we get to call ourselves one of London’s Best Places to Work.

Harrison Pensa was awarded this recognition based on the results of an employee survey developed by Ahria Consulting and the Industrial Organizational Psychology Department at Western University that asked respondents to evaluate their workplace based on three areas: Commitment, Effort and Interest.

The firm was measured against these criteria to gauge how our team finds a sense of meaning in their work, how work-life balance is valued and practiced, and how Harrison Pensa proves its dedication to staff (and London’s!) well-being. As law clerk Lindsay Ferguson explains, “Harrison Pensa’s commitment to serving the community and the causes important to our employees continues to set us apart. We encourage our team to pursue their community passions, get involved and lead in efforts to serve and assist. In addition to caring for others, employees are encouraged to take care of themselves.”

Jillian Martin, the firm’s HR manager, says that key to staff satisfaction is an emphasis on acknowledging the unique talents every employee possesses and that no one staff member is the same as another. “We appreciate that each team member has exceptional skills that contribute to our success as well as unique priorities outside of work that need to be balanced.”

Proud to stand among such an impressive roster of fellow London businesses, we could not be more delighted to know how deeply our team values and enjoys where they work. It is our goal to provide a supportive and respectful work environment and know that our lawyers and staff members are what allow the firm to deliver outstanding client service.
