CHICAGO, December 10, 2018 – Adams Street Partners won a 2018 “Best Place to Work” in Money Management award announced by Pensions & Investments today. Adams Street was awarded in the category of money managers with 100-499 employees.
Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, this sixth-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.
“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 Pensions & Investments Editor Amy B. Resnick. “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. Employees at these topranked firms most often cited their colleagues, the firm’s culture and the benefits as the things that make it a great place to work.”
“It is an honor to be included amongst our peers in receiving this highly respected award in our industry,” said Jeff Diehl, Managing Partner and Head of Investments at Adams Street. “This recognition confirms what we already know to be true about our firm – Adams Street is a special place to work. We value collaboration across all levels and between our locations globally, and we strive to provide our employees with a strong, supportive workplace.”
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.
