Hinman, Howard & Kattell Receives Carol S. Knox Capital District Family Friendly Employer Award

June 19, 2012 (Binghamton, NY)--Hinman, Howard & Kattell, LLP is pleased to be honored as the 2012 recipient of the Carol S. Knox Capital District Family Friendly Employer Award. The award was officially presented on June 5, 2012 at the Installation Dinner of the Capital District Women’s Bar Association. The Firm recognizes that each attorney and staff member has unique circumstances, and we collaborate with these individuals to develop plans that meet both the individual’s needs and the firm’s needs.

We appreciate the importance of family friendly policies. Our firm provides domestic partner benefits, paid parental leave for new and adopting parents, paid vacation and sick leave, and a wellness program. We also believe “family friendly” goes beyond written policies. We have attorneys and staff with a variety of alternate working arrangements including telecommuting and part-time work schedules. We have a number of attorneys and staff who have changed office locations to be closer to family.

We are proud that we have attorneys who have achieved partnership while taking advantage of these flexible work arrangements. Family is very important to HH&K. We encourage our attorneys to take time to coach their children’s little league and soccer teams, and provide our staff with flexible schedules to attend their children’s plays, concerts and sporting events. Our firm holds an annual summer outing where all attorneys and staff and their families can socialize and enjoy getting to know each other.

Beyond our law firm, our attorneys and staff are dedicated to public service to improve the lives of all families living and working in the communities we serve. Our attorneys serve on boards of directors for a variety of non-profit organizations that provide family friendly services including Children’s Home, Youth Sports Network, Community Foundation, Discovery Center, and the Binghamton Zoo. In addition, for the past few years the firm has provided complimentary tickets for the Saturday round of golf at the professional golf tournament, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open. This has allowed countless families who could not otherwise afford the tickets to attend and enjoy the tournament activities.
