“It is both rewarding and humbling to be recognized again this year,” said Managing Partner Charles Jimerson. “This is a testament to our commitment to take care of our employees on a professional and personal level. We never undervalue the importance of team bonding and having fun as an office family, which is especially important as we strive to remain consistent as we continually evolve and grow so quickly.”
Jimerson notes the firm remains conscious of maintaining a strong office culture, and strives to find a healthy balance between professionalism and positive work environment through firm traditions and office activities to establish a high morale. For example, the firm holds monthly competitions, including paper airplane throwing contests and most recently held their 4 th Annual Bob Ross painting competition, which required teams of staff members to work together and mimic a painting from the famous TV artist.
