Wellness in a Changing World
Culture is our greatest asset. We want our employees to realize their fullest personal and professional potential and recognize the criticality of overall wellness in that regard. The firm provides a variety of resources and tools to support employees in their physical and mental wellness pursuits including:
Supporting Employees’ Success
Lincoln donates annually to organizations making an impact.
At Lincoln, employees bring the same energy that fuels client success to helping their communities thrive. Whether working on behalf of clients or for an important cause, we are united globally in our efforts to give back.
Around the world, Lincoln employees lend their talents, time and financial support to important community organizations and causes.
Through the firm’s employer match program and ongoing charitable commitments, we have collectively donated more than $700,000 through volunteerism, grants and corporate matching gifts since 2018. Offices around the world regularly organize volunteer activities as a method for both enhancing their community and strengthening employee culture.
Charitable Match Program
Lincoln’s charitable matching program for all U.S. employees was established to increase the overall impact on our communities and support the work of charitable organizations by encouraging employee giving to eligible organizations. Lincoln has partnered with Charityvest, a modern giving platform, as part of this program.
In addition to the individual efforts of our employees, Lincoln celebrates its shared sense of giving annually during April in honor of the firm’s founding in April 1996. Lincoln’s global employees channel their efforts to support area causes through giving activities affectionately referred to as Abe Day in recognition of the firm’s namesake, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.
In-person meetings provide the opportunity for global Lincoln colleagues to develop and deepen relationships and share perspectives while celebrating the firm’s many accomplishments and the very bright future ahead. These in-person meetings with fellow colleagues are core to Lincoln’s culture. It is inspiring to see the many faces of Lincoln and the energy created when our talent comes together. Equally important, the business connections made, and friendships formed at in-person meetings make them truly essential.
