Our purpose is simple: we have a responsibility to help people around the world - from all walks of life - build a better financial future. So our workforce must reflect the diversity of our clients, in order to bring a wealth of perspectives and insights to solve their unique, complex challenges.
We're a global firm with offices across more than 30 countries, but we operate as "One BlackRock" - and every single employee plays a critical role. No one group or location is more important than another. We thrive on collaboration, mutual trust and respect, and challenge ourselves and each other to collectively raise our game.
We already know that the best solutions result from the ideas and contributions of a diverse team of partners, and the more diverse teams tend to outperform homogeneous ones. But it's not enough to focus solely on building a diverse workforce. We take it one step further and ensure that each and every employee feels included - that they belong.
Who is BlackRock?
BlackRock is a global investment firm, trusted to manage more assets than any other. Our clients are companies, governments, foundations, and millions of individuals saving for retirement, their children’s educations, and a better life. We are passionate about providing products and services that can help them build a strong financial future. Our employees from around the globe are students of the market and students of technology, respectfully anti-bureaucratic, and innovative at the core.
With over $6 trillion assets under management we have a unique responsibility and opportunity to make a real and measurable difference in the lives of people around the world – a responsibility that is woven deep into the fabric of our organization. Our ability to deliver on our mission is further enabled by the depth and breadth of our technology solutions. We have embarked on a multi-decade journey to build the most sophisticated risk management platform in the world, which we now call Aladdin. The Aladdin difference is that all the data is managed in one place, providing a broad and powerful platform to drive innovation across the industry.
But technology without people is nothing. Even as we invest in powerful new technologies, we seek to preserve a firm culture that encourages our technology professionals to continue stretching the boundaries of what’s possible.
Our enduring commitment to technology is reflected throughout our organization –in our business model and plans for future growth, in our recruiting priorities and in our culture where we are constantly evaluating and reevaluating every line of code to deliver the best outcome for our clients.
