Last year we announced BCAUSE—a collaborative effort across our Social Impact Groups to achieve greater impact for our employees, our partners and our communities. The world is increasingly interconnected and transparent—values that have defined Bloomberg from Day One. We have always believed in making connections—connecting investors to better data, connecting users to the Terminal, connecting markets around the world.

Philanthropy & Engagement

Giving back has always been an integral part of who we are, inspired, and led by our founder, Michael Bloomberg. Our philanthropic initiatives bring together employees from across the company for service activities in local communities to assist neighbors in need, to foster stewardship in the cities around the world where we operate, and to inspire the next generation of leaders through a diverse range of mentoring and education initiatives.

Diversity & Inclusion

Bloomberg’s diversity & inclusion efforts instill critical principles and behaviors into the company’s culture, systems, and policies. The D&I team is increasing the experience of inclusion for all employees, so that everyone has an opportunity to be heard and successful. Focusing on recruitment, retention, development, and advancement, diversity & inclusion is wholly integrated into the company’s talent strategy.

Wellness

Bloomberg is committed to the well-being of employees and their families. We offer a comprehensive suite of programs and tools for employees to manage their health, with the aim of reducing risks and improving overall well-being. We have been able to develop a culture of resilient, engaged employees who can succeed in a fast-paced, challenging environment.

Sustainability

At Bloomberg, we are always looking for innovative ways to operate more efficiently, simultaneously improving our financial and environmental performance while disproving the myth that sustainability comes with a cost. More importantly, we are leveraging our unique roles as the leading provider of data, news and analytics to the business and financial communities—increasing transparency and creating decision-useful information around sustainability risks and opportunities. This is good for us and our partners: customers, employees, vendors and the communities in which we work and live. That’s just good business.
