Northwestern Mutual Received Top Workplaces Award, Only Wealth Management Firm Recognized in 2018

Northwestern Mutual of South Carolina received recognition as one of 20 Top Workplaces in SC based solely on feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, an employee research and consulting firm.

The anonymous survey measured 24 factors in seven different areas of workplace culture with a specific focus on how employees share an organization’s values and embrace the company’s mission. 

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. Great business strategies can be copied, but culture cannot.”

Northwestern Mutual offers clients effective risk management, wealth accumulation and wealth preservation strategies and has three district offices in South Carolina with 89 financial representatives. Founded over 160 years ago, Northwestern Mutual was named as the "World's Most Admired" life insurance company in 2018 by FORTUNE®, and Selling Power® ranked Northwestern Mutual as the second best company to sell for in 2016 behind Proctor and Gamble.

“Our company’s culture, quality of work and successes are possible because everyone adds their unique perspectives to help solve a problem, serve a client or manage a project,” said John Tripoli, Managing Director, Northwestern Mutual – Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville. “We offer a culture of inclusion and respect – a culture that applies the collective ideas, opinions and creativity of our diverse workforce to deliver the innovative solutions clients need to feel financially secure.”

According to Chad Dowdy, Managing Director, Northwestern Mutual - Columbia, “Our ability to succeed as a financial industry leader hinges on a key element, bringing out the best in our people and nurturing their independent spirit, self-discipline and a strong work ethic.”

“In a company with such a long and storied history, this may be the most exciting and important time to be a part of Northwestern Mutual,” said Chrys Kanos, Managing Director Northwestern Mutual – Charleston. “We're strong, innovative and growing.”
