We believe in putting people first. Doing the right thing. Creating a culture of respect. These are the principles our company was founded on, and what we've been committed to since day one.
We know that the best client service and financial industry leadership starts with our people-building a diverse team and an inspiring, inclusive workplace where everyone can be, and do, their best every day. The collective ideas, opinions, and creativity of a diverse workforce is necessary to deliver the innovative financial solutions our clients need.
But we can't stop there. We want people to feel valued and respected for who they are and what they bring to the table. We can't be successful unless our people are, which is why we cannot, and will not, tolerate racism, prejudice, or discrimination in any form.
We're committed to taking meaningful action that makes a lasting impact. Here are some of the ways we're building our culture:
Sustained Action for Racial Equity Task Force
We've created a new task force, chaired by our CEO, John Schlifske. This team is looking at racism and inequality from every perspective to identify what we can do to make the biggest difference in our company and communities.
Learning sessions and coaching programs
Our employees and advisors participate in sessions on active allyship, inclusive culture, development and retention of diverse leaders, and anti-racism education. We also have a team dedicated to one-on-one and group diversity coaching for employees in leadership roles.
Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Councils
We have multiple groups representing employees and advisors across our company give input and insight into recruitment and retention, education, and community engagement to help us make an even bigger impact.
Our award-winning Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) help us create a more diverse and inclusive mindset and workplace from the ground up. They also offer opportunities for professional and personal growth and help drive bottom line business impact. These voluntary groups have formed among commonalities of ethnicity/race, ability, gender, nationality, generation, military/veteran status, gender identity, and sexual orientation and include:
