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.

Workplace diversity and employee well-being

Diversity continues to be an area of critical focus for our organization. Relevant statistics and initiatives include:

44%

of Putnam associates identify as women*

18%

of Putnam associates identify as racially or ethnically diverse*

*As of September 30, 2021.

To highlight the importance of inclusivity to our business, Putnam has created the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. One key responsibility of the office is to lead our Diversity Advisory Council and to champion Business Impact Groups. These circles of support focus on education and awareness, development, and retention, and help us build stronger relationships with one another. Our Business Impact Groups include Putnam Black Professional Network, Putnam Multicultural Group, Putnam Pride Alliance, and Women of Putnam.

To help employees thrive both professionally and personally, Putnam offers a variety of benefits and services. These include adoption reimbursement, backup child-care, fitness and weight loss reimbursement, health assistant online coaching, and tuition reimbursement. Maintaining a culture of workplace flexibility is an integral part of our culture. Putnam has instituted a responsible vacation plan, allowing employees to take appropriate and responsible time off each year.
