Culture

We’re the Best (and now we have proof)

Schwegman was chosen by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal as one of the Best Places To Work. We are committed to creating a work environment with room for growth, a dynamic workplace, family-friendly hours, and a casual environment. Schwegman is an environment that fosters creativity and an incentive to work hard and have fun.

Philosophy

Unlike most firms where attorneys rule the roost and staff is at a different level status wise, Schwegman has a “flat” management style. We strive to treat every employee equally – with respect and the freedom to do the best job they can.

Human Resources

Named by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal as one of 2009’s Best Places To Work is an honor but not a surprise. Since 1993 Schwegman has endeavored to find the best people and then to keep them by treating them with respect and giving them the opportunity to grow in their job. Vicky Hawes is the Executive Director of Schwegman and has been with the firm almost since day one.

She works with the Board to find new ways to make Schwegman a better place whether it is with unusual twists on traditional benefits (such as no limit on sick days), surprise benefits (such as “It’s the first nice day after a long winter so take half a day off and go enjoy the weather) or off-the-wall benefits (such as a shorts being okay to wear in the summer, having staff compete in paint ball, go for a tour of the Mill City district on Segways, or a day at the spa).
