All employees and contractors are required to complete training at least annually on several of our compliance, security, human resource and business continuity policies.
All new hires are required to attend introductory sessions to learn about the full breadth of our business, as well as our culture, values and history.
We offer several leadership development programs that employees can opt into or be nominated for. These programs include multiple sessions over the course of six months or more with a mix of assessments, third-party instruction, peer-learning discussions and presentations by internal subject matter experts.
Employees at all levels can enroll in one-off or limited-series interactive sessions on a range of development topics throughout the year including: communication skills, emotional intelligence, teamwork, managing your personal brand, building credibility, preparing to lead and mapping your career.
Employees receive annual training on workplace violence and business continuity practices. Throughout our offices we have trained volunteers to assist in the event of an emergency evacuation, and in some cases, to provide medical attention such as CPR. At our New York Stock Exchange building we have a robust safety program, including in-house security and fire wardens.
For those just starting out, we work with universities in some of our locations to provide recruiting opportunities and paid work training to help students explore career goals and receive individual coaching.
