NORFOLK, VA – December 12, 2022 – Lawson is pleased to share that the company has ranked #23 in the nationwide Best Places to Work Multifamily®, published annually by Multifamily Leadership.  

The Best Places to Work Multifamily® program recognizes companies who have established and consistently foster outstanding workplace environments. The rigorous assessment process evaluates each company’s employee policies and procedures as well as anonymous survey responses and comments from the company’s employees. The program is utilized by Lawson and other companies to measure employee satisfaction and identify opportunities for improvement in the workplace and company culture. 

“This is the third consecutive year Lawson has participated in the Best Places to Work program.”, said Lawson Realty President, Susan Glancy. “The data and feedback we’ve received from the program have proved invaluable in identifying opportunities to improve our workplace. We’ve updated office space, benefits, training opportunities, and company policy based on Best Places feedback, and I think our ranking this year is confirmation that our team members recognize those improvements and our commitment to employee satisfaction.”
