Fiducient Advisors, an NFP company, today announced that it was voted a 2020 Best Places to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments (P&I).

“At Fiducient Advisors, it is a simple fact that our people are foundational to our success,” said Bob DiMeo, CEO of Fiducient Advisors. “We consistently receive glowing feedback about our professionals from clients, and it’s gratifying that P&I also recognizes our fantastic team.” He expanded on the role of relationships at the firm, saying, “Our focus on hiring great people and fostering their growth with a professionally stimulating, collaborative environment that promotes upward mobility and mutual respect, supports our goal of delivering meaningful and sustained value to clients. Like many in our profession, we know all about working smart and working hard.”

DiMeo also noted that culture is key. “Where my colleagues really shine and set themselves apart is by living our three guideposts: checking egos, being accountable, and being thoughtfully driven,” DiMeo added, “We also recognize the importance of getting to know and care about our associates on a personal level, especially during this challenging year.”

Presented by P&I, the global news source of money management, the ninth-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.

P&I editor Amy B. Resnick emphasized this year’s unique considerations. “In this very unusual year, we learned again that employers that consider the overall wellbeing of their employees are regarded well. The best employers in 2020 are those that have stepped up with policies and practices to support and protect employees’ physical and emotional health, while continuing to keep the focus on clients’ needs,” she said. “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were likely to work hard to sustain their corporate cultures, even during times of pandemic lockdowns and continuing to work from home in many cases.”

P&I partnered with Best Companies Group, a research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees.

The first part, which accounts for approximately 25% of the evaluation, assessed each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part, approximately 75% of the total, consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies.

Fiducient Advisors was formerly known as DiMeo Schneider & Associates, L.L.C.
