Each year the Great Place to Work® Institute rewards organizations where it is good to work in over 60 countries. In 2020, the Institute celebrates its 10th edition in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for the occasion it rewards 20 enterprises that make confidence a vehicle for performance and well-being in the workplace. This year is DSM Avocats à la Cour’s first time in participating in the category of Small Companies, which represents organizations of 20 to 49 persons.
We are thus delighted to announce that DSM Avocats à la Cour is one of the ʺBest Workplacesʺ in Luxembourg according to our personnel and the criteria defined by Great Place to Work Luxembourg.
For the occasion, Mario DI STEFANO, DSM Avocats à la Cour’s Managing Partner responded to a few questions from Great Place to Work Luxembourg:
