The BMF Commitment

At BMF, we have an enormous responsibility to authentically and effectively contribute to meaningful change related to diversity, equity, inclusion and a sense of belonging. Improving our communities through the work that we do and treating others with dignity and respect are both the hallmarks of who we are and the standards to which we hold ourselves and our colleagues. That is why we can’t – and we won’t – be bystanders when it comes to fostering a culture of inclusion and equity within our firm and our industry.

We are committed to helping our people do their best work. Our promise is to champion diversity, build an inclusive culture and product, and do our part to create a more equitable world. We can’t promise we’ll always get it right but we promise to always put our people first.


Here are ways we accomplish this promise:

Treating others with dignity and respect is not just an option, it’s our responsibility. We take pride in creating a safe environment, both physically and mentally, by establishing an anti-discrimination policy and addressing any concerns related to workplace harassment, bullying or discrimination. We stand for equality and respect for all.
We believe that constructive feedback is key to a thriving workplace. We have implemented feedback training for all our associates. Our training equips everyone with the skills and knowledge needed to give AND receive feedback effectively, leading to enhanced communication, better performance and a culture of learning and growth. We’re committed to creating an environment where everyone feels heard, respected and empowered.
Providing opportunity is part of our commitment to helping our people do their best work. We have developed a hiring strategy that actively supports organizations aimed at educating under-represented minority high school and college students. We are committed to providing equal opportunities and creating a workforce that is representative of our society. By supporting these organizations, we’re helping to create a more diverse talent pool and providing access to valuable resources and education for those who need it most.
We celebrate and respect the unique differences that make us all special. To help us better understand each other, all associates participate in taking the Gallup CliftonStrengths® Assessment. This allows us to see each other’s perspectives and appreciate everyone’s strengths, creating a deeper understanding of what’s important to our peers and how they operate. By valuing our differences and working together, we’re building a stronger, more cohesive team.
We are committed to helping our people do their best work, wherever they are. We offer a 100% flexible work arrangement that allows our employees to work where and how they perform best. We know that work isn’t just about the location, it’s about how you get work done. By providing this level of flexibility, we empower our employees to work in a way that suits their individual needs and lifestyles.
We know how important it is to prioritize personal time and self-care. We offer additional paid time away for our associates to celebrate days that are meaningful to them and to disconnect from work. We provide a “floating holiday” that can be used at discretion, giving our associates the flexibility to take time off when they need it most. Plus, during the summer months, we offer half-day Fridays to enjoy the beautiful weather and spend time with loved ones. We believe that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of business.

We believe that family comes first and are committed to providing our associates with the support they need to thrive both at work and at home. We provide education, resources and support to help working parents manage both their children and work effectively and offer parental leave for all new parents.

We understand the importance of prioritizing mental health and self-care for our associates and their families. We offer a comprehensive employee assistance and support program that provides a range of services including stress relief, nutrition, grief counseling, mental health support, fitness programs and more, at no cost. This program is designed to support the emotional, physical, and social needs of our associates both at home and at work. We believe that when our team members are happy, healthy and balanced, they’re better equipped to succeed and thrive in their roles.
We are committed to creating an inclusive workplace that supports all of our employees, including those with disabilities. We provide accommodations, such as accessible facilities and technology, to ensure that everyone can perform their job duties to the best of their ability. We also make sure that all our associates have access to the support they need to succeed.
We are committed to providing all our employees with the same opportunities for growth and development. We have created a “Path to Leadership” plan to ensure that everyone has access to the same resources, training and support to advance their careers. Whether someone is new to the firm or looking to take the next step in their career, our program provides the guidance and tools needed to succeed. We believe that everyone has the potential to be a leader and we’re proud to provide a supportive environment where our employees can thrive.
We believe in creating a culture of respect and appreciation for all our associates. We’ve developed internal platforms and communication tools that allow our team members to express gratitude for their colleagues’ contributions and recognize the unique skills and perspectives that each person brings to the workplace. We believe that open communication is essential to building a strong and supportive team, which is why we provide dedicated channels for employees to ask questions, share their perspectives, brainstorm ideas and express appreciation.
Our mission is simple:  Foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace culture where every individual feels valued, respected and empowered to achieve their dreams.
