NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voya Investment Management, the asset management business of Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE:VOYA), announced today that it has been named to Pensions & Investments magazine's "2019 Best Places to Work in Money Management" list. This is the fifth consecutive year Voya has been named to the list.
"Making this list five years in a row is testament that our people feel Voya is a great place to grow their careers,” said Christine Hurtsellers, chief executive officer, Voya Investment Management. "Our culture is critical to our success. The greatest compliment we can have is when clients say they like working with us because of our people, and this is directly tied to our culture.”
Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies.
“Our culture isn’t static. We constantly look for ways to improve,” said Michael Pratt, head of Human Resources, Voya Investment Management. “We are always asking ‘what can we do better?’ and we want our employees to take an active role in helping us answer that question.”
Among the unique benefits Voya Investment Management offers its employees include 40 hours of annual volunteer time with the charitable organizations of their choice. The company also holds its annual National Day of Service where each office across the country spends the day taking part in local volunteer events.
“Again this year, it is clear that what makes firms great employers isn't necessarily about money management in particular. Many firms were cited for their culture and benefits,” said Amy B. Resnick, editor, P&I. “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were much more likely to offer things like flex time, telecommuting, child and elder care, family leave, job sharing, and adoption assistance.”
In addition to this accolade, earlier this year, Voya was listed on the 2019 Disability Equality Index® as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” Voya was also named one of the World’s Best Employers by Forbes and as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality for 14 consecutive years in the 2019 Human Rights Campaign Foundation annual Corporate Equality Index.
