Polen Capital has been named by Pensions & Investments as one of the Best Places to Work in Money Management for the sixth consecutive year. Polen Capital provides high-conviction investment strategies to a wide range of institutional and individual clients around the world with a mission to preserve and grow our clients’ assets to protect their present and enable their future.
Polen Capital earned a top spot in the category for asset managers with 100-499 employees. Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the tenth-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.
As an employee-controlled investment manager, Polen Capital is committed to its culture of purpose, autonomy, and continuous learning. The firm believes that its culture has enhanced creativity, focus, employee retention and—most importantly—alignment of interests with its clients. Additionally, two of the firm’s core values are to ‘do the right thing,’ and ‘do more than expected’ and that applies not just to clients and colleagues but also to its community.
We strive to provide excellent resources to enable employees to show up as their best selves.
“We are grateful to receive this prestigious award recognizing Polen Capital’s unique culture and work environment,” said Polen Capital CEO, Stan Moss. “We strive to provide excellent resources to enable employees to show up as their best selves with their best mindset. We believe our focus on developing talent provides a competitive advantage in delivering positive outcomes for our clients and stakeholders.”
“Now in its 10th year, P&I’s Best Places to Work in Money Management spotlights the unique ways that employers build healthy and thriving work cultures,’’ said Executive Editor Julie Tatge. “This year was no different. The 100 firms profiled in our Dec. 13 issue grappled with myriad challenges posed by the pandemic and met them, helping ensure that their employees felt supported and able to do their best work.’’
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.
