Gurtin Municipal Bond Management Receives Local Business Award

Asset Manager Awarded 2016 Top Workplace Distinction

SAN DIEGO (October 30, 2017)—The San Diego Union-Tribune has recognized Gurtin Municipal Bond Management, a wealth management firm with a singular focus on municipal bonds, as a 2016 Top Workplace. The firm, which is headquartered in San Diego, Calif., with additional offices in San Francisco and Chicago, received the distinction thanks to the positive results of a confidential survey that a third party administered to the firm’s employees.

Award Eligibility and Selection Methodology

Organizations with 50 or more employees are eligible to participate in the Top Workplace program, a 4-year-old competition that Workplace Dynamics operates, in partnership with the San Diego Union-Tribune. Anyone, from current and retired employees to clients, can nominate a company to take part in the program. There is no fee to enter.

Workplace Dynamics administers a 24-question survey to the employees of participating companies, requesting feedback on issues such as management, compensation, benefits, and workplace amenities. Based on the survey results, the firm then ranks the organizations, categorizing them in one of three groups: companies with 50 to 99 employees; those with 100 to 499 employees; and those with 500 or more personnel.

In 2016, the firm surveyed 69 organizations located in San Diego County, collecting 8,842 responses. For details about the non-profit organizations and profit-seeking companies honored as a Top Workplace, please see the complete list of 2016 Top Workplaces.
