Jason Kern, LaSalle Americas CEO, said: “We are proud to once again be recognized as one of the best places to work in our industry. Earning this recognition five years in a row is a testament to our focus on dedication to creating transparent, diverse and talent-filled workplace that is fulfilling for our employees, and ultimately beneficial for our clients. Through this challenging period and beyond, we will continue to promote a culture that emphasizes performance and service for our clients, while ensuring our employees have the necessary resources for personal growth and development.”
Amy B. Resnick, P&I Editor, said: “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. 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.”
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.
