The firm was selected for notable employee-friendly practices and growth-oriented culture.
PHILADELPHIA, August 12, 2021 – Wescott Financial Advisory Group, a leading independent registered investment advisory and wealth management firm, has been named to B Corp U.S.’s Best for the World (BFTW) List in the Workers category. Wescott achieved a top 5% impact score for their employee-centric practices including flexibility, upward mobility and fair hiring. The sought-after accolade is awarded based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by B Lab, the nonprofit organization which certifies companies as B Corporations. Wescott proudly earned B Corp certification in 2020 in part for their efforts in ESG + Impact investing and inclusive employee and culture building practices.
“For nearly 35 years, Wescott’s core guiding principles have revolved around making a meaningful impact in the world. We strive to catalyze change through our firm-wide commitment to community service and our efforts to cultivate a thriving professional ecosystem for our internal team,” said Grant Rawdin, Founder and CEO of Wescott Financial Advisory Group. “This award is a credit to our steadfast belief that excellence is born from equal opportunity. We want our team to always feel valued for their contributions and comfortable in their professional environment- it is our top priority, along with unparalleled client service. For us, it is simply an added reward that our devotion to equality and inclusivity motivates our team to achieve and push the boundaries of what is possible.”
Wescott’s honor comes on the heels of a challenging pandemic year for firms and professionals. During the past year, the company reaffirmed their commitment to ensuring workers felt safe and supported, while continuing to invest in career development opportunities and encouraging employees to focus on the community during a time of unprecedented need.
Since 2012, the BFTW program has honored companies that have exceeded in five core impact areas: Community, Customers, Environment, Governance and Workers. The program is designed to provide on opportunity from the community to collaborate in a knowledge exchange to create best practices for B Corps as an extension of their overall initiative to inspire businesses to create a more equitable, healthy world and global economy.
