Serving clients in more than 40 countries through a network of offices worldwide, we believe our most valuable asset is our engaged and empowered workforce. Our 14,000+ employees work collaboratively, fostering a culture of continuous improvement while maintaining our differentiated client experience. Our culture is guided by our enduring principles: service, expertise and integrity. These principals are at the heart of our organization.
Diversity drives innovation and improvement. By fostering an inclusive environment, we elevate employee engagement.
Our employees' collective mix of attributes serves as a catalyst for innovation and productivity through diversity of thought, ability and perspective. Northern Trust is an Equal Opportunity Employer and committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce. Our guiding principles embrace inclusion and diversity of culture, thought, experience and other attributes of individuals' backgrounds and hold in highest regard the dignity of, and respect for, all employees in our workplace.
We ensure our policies guide our behaviors to create and maintain a discrimination-free workplace. Northern Trust supports total diversity: gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, physical disabilities, and marital/family status, among others.
To support our global business strategy, and to enhance employees' professional networks, Northern Trust sponsors a number of Business Resource Councils (affinity groups) with an executive advisor, including:
Being a responsible business directly impacts our financial success and is integral to our culture of caring. Every employee plays the role of steward and is asked to consider sustainable business performance improvements. Volunteerism, philanthropy, sound business practices and ethics, and a conservation-minded approach to protecting the world are practices that form the foundation of our corporate social responsibility.
People are at the center of our business strategy because they are our bridge to our clients. Each employee serves as the 'face' of Northern Trust, whether external or internal. We welcome people who strive to deliver exceptional service, progress their career and embrace our evolving organization. Be inspired by what some of our employees are saying.
