PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC announced today it was honored with the Best Place to Work in Money Management for 2020 award for the sixth time by Pensions & Investments.
Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the ninth-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.
This is the sixth time since 2013 and fifth consecutive year Brandywine Global has been recognized with an award. This consistent ranking is a testament to the efforts of the firm to support and cultivate employee’s personal and professional growth. These efforts were particularly critical in 2020 as workplaces around the world grappled with uncertainty, newly imposed health risks and work from home transitions.
“In this very unusual year, we learned again that employers that consider the overall wellbeing of their employees are regarded well. The best employers in 2020 are those that have stepped up with policies and practices to support and protect employees’ physical and emotional health, while continuing to keep the focus on clients’ needs,” said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick. “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were likely to work hard to sustain their corporate cultures, even during times of pandemic lockdowns and continuing to work from home in many cases.”
“While we’re always honored to be recognized for this award, this year’s win is particularly meaningful,” said Managing Partner Adam Spector. “Rather than give in to social distance, we found new, creative, virtual ways to connect and foster the collaborative, dynamic environment for which we are known, all while keeping the safety of our employees and clients at the forefront. I’m proud that we’ve been able to provide our employees with the flexibility and resources needed to excel even under the toughest circumstances. It is our dedication to our culture and the empowerment of our employees that have allowed us to not only persevere but thrive as we overcame the obstacles presented by 2020.”
Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, a 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.
