WINNER

MANAGERS WITH 100 TO 499 EMPLOYEES

Conning

Hartford, Conn.
AUM as of June 30: $180 billion
Employees: 261

3 Cool Things:
     • Hosts young professional and women’s networking groups, offers community volunteering, a comprehensive wellness program, has a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and an internship program that has endured remotely during the COVID-19 crisis.
     • Helps underwrite costs of commuting to work with a contribution of $60 a month.
     • The firm has decades-old employee traditions that include a Reindeer Games holiday celebration featuring employee-cooked breakfast and games such as mini-golf and Family Feud.
  

Employees say:
     • “I truly feel valued as an employee and know as a millennial that the company is invested in seeing my growth. Two great things are being able to get 100% tuition reimbursed and getting praise from senior leaders when deserved.”
     • “The organization provides the most current and up-to-date computer software and hardware available to allow us to do our jobs well. They also provide non-work activities and outings during the year, which makes you feel like part of a team/family and not just a number.”
     • “They seem to actually put people first. I feel free during the pandemic to say, ‘I can't work today,’ or ‘I want to keep working from home,’ without fear of reprisal of any kind.”

CELEBRATE! Employees turn out at a local business publication's “40 Under Forty” reception to support colleague Becky Humphrey, center, a director in insurance research.
