Deadlines extended for P&I’s Innovators, Best Places to Work

Pensions & Investments has extended the deadlines for its 2018 Excellence and Innovation awards and for its Best Places to Work in Money Management program.

The deadline for nominations for the Excellence and Innovation awards has been extended until June 15. The deadline for money management firms to register for the Best Places to Work program has been extended to June 12.

Co-sponsored by the Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association, the Excellence and Innovation awards aim to recognize DC plan executives and employers for well-executed, creative and unusual projects that ensure participants have adequate retirement income.

Central to the Excellence and Innovation awards are plan improvements that not only advance retirement outcomes in a particular plan but also introduce ideas that potentially reverberate elsewhere in the industry. Awards for excellence recognize that good retirement outcomes result from outstanding execution, as well as innovation in design.

The deadline for money management firms to register for P&I's Best Places to Work in Money Management has been extended to June 12.

Firms that register will be ranked against their peers by number of employees based on responses to two questionnaires.

The simple yet thorough two-step company assessment is managed by P&I partner Best Companies Group, an independent research firm.

Results will be published online and in the Dec. 10 issue of P&I, and will include profiles and photos of top-ranked organizations.
