20 Years Among the Best and What it Means for You

More than two decades ago, Baird made being a best workplace a strategic priority for our firm. We even added it to our mission:

To provide the best financial advice and service to our clients and be the best place to work for our associates.

We did it because we knew attracting and retaining top talent would be essential to ensuring the quality and continuity of what we do for those who rely on us.

In 2023, Baird was recognized for the 20th consecutive year as one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®. And while that’s an honor we’ll never take for granted, it’s also a source of pride. Because we know the great outcomes we’ve helped achieve for our clients and in our communities during that time – as well as the growth and success of our firm through prosperous and challenging environments – are thanks to the remarkable people who live our mission and make The Baird Difference every day.
