Fast paced. High energy. Team based.

Working at Westwood

Westwood’s unique culture is built on an employee ownership culture that ensures that, over time, every employee becomes a stockholder. Employees and board members owned approximately 21% of our firm as of March 2018. This structure aligns the interests of our employees, clients, and stockholders and helps promote a team mindset across our firm.

We value our employees and strive to create a workplace that helps them succeed. New mobile technology, cloud computing, Skype, and new collaboration rooms such as the Idea Lab are examples of how we foster teamwork at Westwood.

Employee engagement is also vital to our success. In 2016, we solicited input from every employee in our company on the top goals for our firm, which were then solidified by senior executives and our board of directors. An internal scorecard is used to track progress against our goals, providing greater transparency in our goal setting and greater accountability.

Community involvement, a cornerstone of our culture, also drives engagement and makes employees proud to work at Westwood.
