The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) won a spot on Pensions & Investments’ 2018 Best Places to Work in Money Management list today for the second year running. The HIT was recognized for its commitment to work life balance and its mission driven work.
“The work we do at the HIT – transforming communities and striving to provide our pension investors with competitive returns – motivates our team,” said Chang Suh, HIT CEO. “We take our work seriously, but the unique mission encourages collegiality and long-term dedication to the company and its investors.”
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.
“Again this year, it is clear that what makes firms great employers isn't necessarily about money management in particular,” said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick. “Employees at these top-ranked firms most often cited, their colleagues, the firm’s culture and the benefits as the things that make it a great place to work.”
The survey, which was weighted 75% to anonymous employee surveys conducted by a third party, revealed this dynamic at work at the HIT. P&I’s article on the HIT cited an employee who wrote:
“Over the years, employees develop meaningful relationships with their colleagues and show up to support each other in a variety of ways: items for children (clothing, sports equipment, toys and books) are passed down among employees, meals are dropped off as people go through difficult times, happy occasions are celebrated. People are proud to work here.”
