Firm recognized third year in a row for its culture and benefits, D&I efforts and community involvement
Submitted by OppenheimerFunds
OppenheimerFunds, a leading asset manager, was named a Best Place to Work in Money Management for 2018 by Pensions & Investments. The annual program results are based on a two-part survey of both employees on their workplace experience, as well as firms’ policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics.
Art Steinmetz, Chairman and CEO of OppenheimerFunds commented in the publication’s December awards issue, “We all share responsibility in building our corporate culture and I am proud of the diverse and inclusive thinking that inspires us to do our best work every day.”
OppenheimerFunds’ corporate philanthropy and community initiatives include its 10,000 Kids by 2020 program, which aims to introduce 10,000 students to math literacy programs over the next several years through nonprofit partnerships and active employee volunteerism. In support of this effort, the firm recently announced a $1 million donation to the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath). The firm also works closely with the Boys & Girls Club, MATHSWORLDUK and Cross-Cultural Solutions, which provides impactful and sustainable service opportunities and skills based volunteer programs. In addition, employees support a wide range of organizations and causes through the firm’s volunteer time-off program, local and global volunteer opportunities, and matching gift program. In recognition of OppenheimerFunds’ 60th year which begins in 2019, the firm will offer an enhanced match for all employee donations of up to $6,000 made to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofits during January and February 2019.
“It is an honor to be recognized for the third year in a row as one of the best places to work in asset management,” said Andy Doyle, Chief Human Resources Officer at OppenheimerFunds. “Our firm’s success has been rooted in our employee talent and diverse, inclusive work environment, with a culture built on trust, accountability and giving back in the communities where we live and work.”
As part of its diversity and inclusion efforts, OppenheimerFunds provides employees with the opportunity to connect with the diverse experiences of colleagues by joining Business Resource Groups, which include the Asian Professionals Network, Black Professionals Network, Disabilities Network, Latino Professionals Network, LGBTQ+ Network, Military Network, and Women’s Network. Over the past year, the firm was recognized on Working Mother magazine’s list of 2018 “Best Companies” for working mothers, and as one of the “Best Companies for Dads” and one of the 50 Best Places to Work for New Dads by Fatherly. The firm was also recognized on the Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index and 2018 Disability Equality Index, by Working Mother as one of the Best Companies for Multicultural Women, and as a Diversity Champion in Investment News’ Diversity & Inclusion Awards. The firm was named as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality in 2018 by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
