Award Criteria

Pensions and Investments is a multi-channel media organization that delivers a comprehensive portfolio of news, research and analysis to the professional  investment community. Since 2012, Pensions & Investments has ranked U.S. money managers based on the results of employer and employee surveys conducted by its partner on the project, Best Companies Group. An anonymous employee survey, which aims to evaluate employee engagement and satisfaction, accounts for 75% of a firm’s score; an employer survey, which evaluates  workplace policies, practices, benefits and demographics, makes up 25%. Survey respondents cite their colleagues, their firm’s culture and their benefits as factors that make top-ranked organizations great places to work.
