Our culture recognizes the importance of our biggest differentiator — our people. Heitman’s collaborative work environment gives our professionals the opportunity to build something together. Something too appealing to ignore and too rewarding to leave.
We believe our culture, brand, and strong reputation help us attract and retain some of the most sought-after talent in the industry. As of September 30, 2022, our senior management team averages 28 years of investment advisory experience. The average tenure of Heitman’s nearly 350 professionals on staff is eight years.
We believe our success in consistently building a dedicated talent pool stems from the deliberate steps we’ve taken to create the collaborative, innovative culture needed to reward and retain talented people.
We work hard but always keep things in perspective. We aspire to be a flexible, entrepreneurial work environment that emphasizes teamwork and balance while providing opportunities for growth, competitive pay, and benefits. No matter their role or tenure, our employees are valued, challenged, and given opportunities to make an impact.
We also believe the following are essential to building a successful culture:
- Allowing professionals to invest in the firm’s investment funds
- Creating competitive compensation plans to reinforce a performance-based culture
- Combining high performance expectations with flexibility and opportunity for varied career experiences
- Committing to professional and technical development for all employees to create a vibrant culture of learning and growth
Beyond a competitive compensation program, our company-sponsored benefits provide financial security for health, retirement, and other life events.
