Pensions & Investments names Balentine to 2012 “Best Places to Work”
In its December 10th, 2012 issue, Pensions & Investments named Balentine one of its “Best Places to Work in Money Management.” Balentine, an Atlanta-based, employee-owned firm serving individuals, families, and not-for-profit institutions, is one of 15 firms nation-wide to receive this honor. Balentine placed second among firms with fewer than 100 employees. Founded in 2009, Balentine currently has 24 employees and $1.6 billion in assets under management.
The 2012 study is the inaugural “Best Places to Work in Money Management” list for Pensions & Investments, who partnered with Buck Consulting. The process included an employer survey and a separate, anonymous employee survey.
According to Pensions & Investments, “The ‘winners’ come in all sizes and stripes, yet they share some common—and critical—characteristics. All of the companies had strong cultures, positive work environments, high employee engagement and good benefits.”
As part of its commitment to human capital, Balentine recently completed its first annual employee survey, with questions addressing issues ranging from health benefits to continuing education. As part of Balentine’s continuing education program, employees participate in an educational Lunch & Learn series that covers a range of investment subjects. Additionally, the entire firm gathers weekly for updates from each department and a “roundtable,” where each staff member is encouraged to speak up on any matters related to the good of the firm.
“At Balentine, we have named 2013 the Year of Human Capital, and being included in this prestigious list is a wonderful way to kick off this campaign,” said Robert Balentine, chairman and CEO of Balentine. “We have worked hard to build a culture of professional growth, continuous learning, and community involvement, and it is rewarding to know our employees value our commitment to their continued growth and development.”
