Health and well-being

We offer our employees a comprehensive range of programs with resources and support for physical, mental and financial well-being and we support flexible work arrangements.

We believe it is essential to...

Create a workplace where employees feel valued and inspired
Provide an environment that fosters a culture of independence, inclusion and intellectual leadership
Support peer collaboration and professional growth
Employee well-being insights
In 2020, we conducted four employee surveys that revealed excellent insights into the values and priorities of our employees, including useful health and well-being data:

We used the information collected from those surveys to shape company initiatives. For example, when our survey showed slightly lower scores related to management’s communication with employees, our managers responded by prioritizing communication, especially related to continued remote work and plans for returning to the office.
80%* of employees agreed Moody’s took a genuine interest in their well-being in 2020.
*Unweighted average of favorability scores from April, May and September surveys. The favorability score is the percentage of employees that selected a 4 (agree) or 5 (strongly agree).
Healthy remote work
To promote well-being during the pandemic, a number of teams participated in “No Meeting Fridays” and coordinated holiday weeks or time off. Employees at assistant vice president (AVP)-level or below received a stipend to help improve their ability to work remotely, and all employees received a year-end “well-being allowance” to use at their discretion to support mental or physical well-being.
Looking ahead, we are adapting our operations in a way that better serves the needs of our employees, our business and our customers. The “Workplace of the Future” project, initiated in 2020, is enhancing our technology and IT infrastructure and implementing an enhanced flexible work model that will allow increased part- and full-time remote work that may allow us to reduce office space, employee commuting and business travel over the long term.

Adapting to a virtual world

In 2020, we launched a virtual well-being and development series, Moody’s Moments that Matter, providing employees and managers with education and empowerment on mental health, resilience and thriving in an increasingly virtual world through articles, videos and weekly live webinars. Developed as a response to the pandemic, it will continue as part of our range of wellness tools. In 2020, we held over 70 sessions that together garnered more than 44,000 views.
