DENVER, April 20, 2018 – OppenheimerFunds, a leading global asset manager, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Denver Post. The list is based on employee feedback gathered by Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measured several aspects of workplace culture.
“We are proud to have been recognized as a top workplace by The Denver Post for the sixth year in a row,” said Andy Doyle, Chief Human Resources Officer at OppenheimerFunds. “We prioritize having a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement and encourages individuals to do great work inside and outside of the firm.”
OppenheimerFunds works closely with a number of organizations, including the National Museum of Mathematics, the Boys & Girls Club, and Cross-Cultural Solutions. Through its 10,000 Kids by 2020 program, the firm aims to introduce 10,000 students to math literacy. In Denver, the firm has partnered with the Blind Institute of Technology (BIT) to pilot a program to recruit and retain talent drawn from the blind and visually impaired community, and with PCs for People, a nonprofit that refurbishes recycled computers and provides affordable technology to low-income individuals and families. Recently, in coordination with Common Impact, Denver employees participated in a skills-based volunteering activity to develop a program budgeting framework for the National Sports Center for the Disabled.
Diversity and inclusion are also important components of OppenheimerFunds’ culture. Employees are able to connect with the diverse experiences of colleagues by joining the firm’s Business Resource Groups, which include the Asian Professionals Network; Black Professionals Network; Disabilities Network; Latino Professionals Network; Military Network; PROUD Network (representing the LGBTQ community); and Women’s Network.
OppenheimerFunds was named one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign for scoring 100% on its 2018 Corporate Equality Index and has been recognized as a Great Place to Work® by Fortune and a Best Place to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments.
