To create this list, Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work analyzed more than 500 companies of different sizes across a range of industries. eVestment came in No. 26 on the list thanks to the company’s combination of flexible workplace policies and a culture that encourages people to make the most of them.
“A supportive, flexible workplace results in a better experience for our employees and in turn creates an environment of passion and innovation that allows us to meet our clients’ needs,” said eVestment CEO Jim Minnick. “And we’ve found that flexibility goes both ways. Our employees are flexible and go the extra mile on big projects, to meet major deadlines and in taking on new challenges to grow their careers, knowing that we’ll go the extra mile to help them meet their needs as well.”
eVestment and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to the Trust Index, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey, as well as an analysis of respondents’ anonymous comments. Survey questions assessed co-workers’ feelings on work-life balance, in addition to factors like communication, fairness and leadership that affect employees’ ability to accommodate their personal lives without compromising their careers. Fortune and Great Place to Work also considered the range of flexible workplace programs offered at each organization and the frequency of their use.
“Creating career flexibility isn’t as simple as giving people time off or the chance to adjust their schedules to meet demands at home,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work®. “These companies have made a real investment in credible, trusting cultures that help employees achieve their goals both inside and outside the workplace.”
eVestment provides a flexible suite of easy-to-use, cloud-based solutions to help the institutional investing community identify and capitalize on global investment trends, better select and monitor investment managers and more successfully enable asset managers to market their funds worldwide. eVestment’s mission is to help make smart money smarter.
