ESG in Putnam operations
We work to be a leader in implementing ESG best practices in our corporate policies and in upholding them in our daily business operations. We aim to earn the respect of our employees, business partners, and customers.
Diversity continues to be an area of critical focus for our organization. Relevant statistics and initiatives include:
Women currently represent 33% of the organization, and 58% of new hires (2019)
People of color represent 21% of the organization and 8% of new hires (2019)
Putnam stands out for having a high percentage of female portfolio managers, according to a 2018 study
The Putnam Diversity Council is chaired by our Head of Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion, and includes a Women of Putnam initiative, which holds regular discussion groups to enable networking and idea exchanges, as well as the Putnam Pride Alliance for LGBTQ individuals
