Jeffrey Kanne, National’s President and CEO, said: “National is extremely proud of the ongoing recognition by P&I, which distinguishes our highly collaborative work environment and commitment to deliver the highest quality service to our clients. We are totally dedicated to sustaining a culture of mutual respect and support, shared recognition and rewards, and growth opportunities for all. This determination and focus ultimately translates into superior results for all our stakeholders—clients and partners, as well as all of us in the organization.”
Many employees of the firm provided written feedback about National. One individual mentioned that “they treat employees with trust, respect, and set a tone of professionalism that makes a wonderful working experience.” Another individual stated that National “provides multiple opportunities to work on a variety of challenging and interesting projects within a context of a friendly and enjoyable team of people.”
P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick said: “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. 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.
”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.
