Stubbs Alderton & Markiles understands that both monetary, and tangible benefits like health insurance can’t be the only things to incentivize employees. The firm has fostered a culture of inclusion, where the usual hierarchy between attorneys and staff isn’t felt. The management team and partners have implemented fringe benefits such as annual tech gifts, elaborate annual holiday parties for staff and their families, providing 20 pound turkeys for each employee at Thanksgiving, gift cards for going above and beyond, and other acts of recognition. The management team also encourages continuing education and showing initiative to grow ones career in the position that they are in. Many of the firm’s staff have promoted to other positions within the firm. This team mentality within the firm creates an incentivized environment where employees thrive.
Stubbs Aldereton & Markiles’ diversity and inclusion initiatives are also ever-evolving. Currently, the firm has a Women Attorney Committee that meets regularly to give associate attorneys mentorship from the more senior attorneys and partners. The firm also has solidified partnerships with organizations focused on diversity and inclusion for entrepreneurs, including Black Investors Club, Pledge LA and others.
