LaSalle Named a Best Place to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments
CHICAGO (December 12, 2016) –– LaSalle Investment Management is pleased to announce it has been named a Best Place to Work in Money Management for 2016 by Pensions & Investments (P&I).
The fifth-annual survey and recognition program hosted by P&I is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry. This is the second year LaSalle has earned a ranking within this survey, following the firm’s inclusion in the 2013 awards.
“I am deeply gratified that LaSalle has earned this distinction, as it speaks directly to the collective quality of the people that drive our organization on a daily basis,” said Jason Kern, LaSalle Americas CEO. “We will continue to foster a culture that emphasizes performance, but does so in a way that ensures our employees have the necessary resources for success, while offering a collegial atmosphere that inspires cross-functional collaboration.”
P&I 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.
P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick, said, “Employees at these top-ranked firms most often cited their colleagues, the firm’s culture and the benefits as the things that make it a great place to work. Again this year, it is clear that what makes firms great employers isn't necessarily about salaries.”
