Petersen Hastings, a Registered Investment Advisory firm located in Kennewick, WA, announced today it has been named one of InvestmentNews’ 2019 Top 50 Best Places to Work for Financial Advisors in the nation for the second consecutive year. This program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing advisory firms across the United States that empower, encourage, and inspire employees to provide their clients with the best possible investment and financial planning advice. The firm, established in 1962, was named a Top 50 Employer in March, 2018 by InvestmentNews in the inaugural year of the recognition.

“Petersen Hastings is pleased and honored to have again, earned a spot on the InvestmentNews Best Places to Work for Financial Advisors list for 2019,” said Scott Sarber, President of Petersen Hastings. “We strive to go beyond offering our employees attractive benefits and perks: we create a workplace that empowers our team, giving them the skills and confidence needed to provide our clients with the best possible financial planning team of experts available to them. Being recognized for our accomplishments on a national level for the second consecutive year is a success we are very proud of,” said Sarber.

Workplace culture is one of the major competitive advantages for the future of organizations and the world. Petersen Hastings believes there are three cores of culture: Leadership and Management, Clarity, and Teams. “Having a cohesive Leadership Team where our senior leaders play complementary roles has been foundational for our success. Each team member has clarity around our Petersen Hastings’ purpose, mission, values and short and long-term firm goals and each employee’s individual goals, crafted quarterly, support those strategic anchors,” he said. “We have the right people in the right roles, on the right teams, and continue to develop and invest in each of them.”

Being named a top employer is a reflection of Petersen Hastings’ employee engagement in a number of areas, including personal and professional development, workplace satisfaction and overall team success. “Being an excellent workplace begins with recognizing our team’s aspirations (personal, professional, educational) and nurturing them along with a flexible, family-friendly work environment. By doing this, we are able to create an environment where our employees thrive at being their best,” said Sarber. “This honor reflects our company-wide commitment to our team, our clients, and our community.”
