Why Donnelley Financial Solutions (DFIN) IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Approaching problem-solving with the mindset of “how can I help you succeed?” After healthy, data-driven debate, we align around the best ideas and are prepared to lead or to serve in a support role. We’ve achieved several enterprise-wide projects that were only possible through collaborative efforts at every level of the organization. This aspect of our culture resonates with employees: we enjoy a lower rate of voluntary turnover than our peers in the industry. In 2023 the voluntary turnover rate was 5.43% for the global workforce and 4.3% for the U.S. workforce.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

Employees know they are an important stakeholder to the company alongside clients and shareholders, and that together we win as one. In this framework, employees can count on a world-class experience based upon a culture of respect, collaboration, pay-for-performance mindset, growth and clear expectations. Employees are kept well informed by the executive leadership team about company strategy and key priorities. During each quarterly global employee town hall, employees hear directly from the CEO and have an opportunity to ask questions of the entire Executive Leadership Team during the meeting.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

Fostering a culture in which respect, inclusion, honesty, humility, service, and accountability govern our interactions with one another. The DEI Council, which is CEO sponsored, was created to keep DEI at the forefront of our culture. In a 2023 survey sponsored by the DEI Council, approximately 89.9% of employees agreed with the statement: “In my team, we have a working environment in which different views and perspectives are valued.” We encourage employees who want their voices to be heard collectively as part of a distinct community to form resource groups, and we now have three.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

Providing challenging and rewarding work and growth opportunities. We recognize everyone’s potential to lead, no matter their title or role. So, we offer virtual, social, and self-directed learning, mentoring, coaching and career development opportunities to help employees strengthen their skills and accelerate their development. In 2023, 62% of employees engaged in self-directed learning and development activities, completing over 7,475 hours of self-directed learning through our on-demand eLearning platforms.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

We have developed leadership behaviors that support our values of Uncompromising Integrity, Collective Genius, Bold Action, and Purposeful Agility. We have developed an entire learning path to bring our values to life and foster a cohesive, purpose-driven culture. Each course builds learners’ knowledge of the leadership behaviors that support our values. As of 2023, 50% of employees completed this learning path. Our social recognition platform rewards employees for demonstrating these values. In 2023, 69% of employees and 81% of managers sent others recognition and employees were tagged over 34,000 times with different skills or leadership behaviors.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

Policies that respect employees’ time. Employees receive feedback on a continuous basis as part of the regular process, not as an annual event. U.S. salaried employees are allowed to take as much time as needed for vacation or personal issues not covered by other sick or disability policies through our Flexible Paid Time Off policy. There is no requirement that employees must work in the office or commit to working in the office a percentage of the time or on certain days. In-person collaboration is still valued, and the leadership team intentionally creates opportunities for employees to connect.

CEO Strengths

OUR CEO SERVES AS A MODEL OF OUR COMPANY VALUES BY …

Creating a culture of trust and transparency. Our CEO aligns his words with his actions, e.g., he “walks his talk.” He has ushered the company through its continuing transformation by openly and consistently communicating with employees. He has extended the time for town halls to answer employee questions and does not shy away from the tough questions. He cultivates an open-door policy that employees feel empowered to use. He has built a reputation as hard working and humble, a servant leader whose primary goal is to make employees and thus the company better.

Benefits

EXAMPLES OF UNIQUE BENEFITS, BONUS, OR COMPENSATION WE PROVIDE ARE …

An Employee Stock Purchase Program in which eligible employees based in the U.S. were able to purchase DFIN stock at a 10% discount through payroll deductions. In response to the evolving needs of employees, we introduced new offerings in 2023 such as coverage for gender dysphoria and the diagnosis and treatment of infertility conditions. Last year, DFIN absorbed higher benefit costs to limit the burden on employees by keeping health premiums the same for two years in a row, lowering the cost of prescription drugs across all medical plans and maintaining unchanged dental and vision premiums for four consecutive years.
