Stadion Money Management Named a Best Place To Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments

WATKINSVILLE, GA - December 12, 2022 - Stadion Money Management, who works with advisors to build retirement plan and participant level investment solutions using our adaptive technology, has been named to Pensions & Investments Best Places to Work in Money Management list for the fourth consecutive year.

Pensions & Investments partners with Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, and conducts a two-part survey process of employers and their employees. Winners are selected based on company practices, programs, and benefits, and also feedback on the employee experience.

Notable among Stadion employee comments was feedback on the company’s family-like atmosphere, positive work culture and sense of purpose. Stadion employees participated in this survey at a rate of 19% over the reported response average.

“Our focus is to help people prepare for retirement, which I believe that we do through our retirement managed accounts and our flexible technology. At the same time we are also dedicated to developing the Stadion team,” said Stadion’s President Duane Bernt. “This recognition underscores the value we place in supporting our employees so that they can feel confident supporting the retirement outcomes of others."

“We are honored to be once again recognized as one of the best places to work in money management,” said Stadion’s Chief Revenue Officer Todd Lacey. “This award is a testament to the culture we have built and sustained at Stadion, and to the entire team that upholds our values and brings passion to helping retirement savers through personalized investment services.”

This is one of the many milestones Stadion achieved this year. Earlier in 2022, Stadion was acquired by Smart, a leading global retirement technology provider. Since then, Stadion has continued to grow the team, welcoming seasoned experts to capitalize on the growing interest in managed accounts to support personalized retirement savings. 

Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, a research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees.

The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies.
