Perks and Programs

We asked Dun & Bradstreet to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • CEO Leadership Experience: The CEO Leadership Experience is a leadership development course designed for our top leaders and executive successors at Dun & Bradstreet. The innovative curriculum represents our significant investment in the future executives and senior leaders in the company. The program involves three phases: Know Yourself, Lead and Influence and Embrace the World. The CEO Leadership Experience launched in 2014 and has initiated 3 "classes" so far, totaling 114 participants. We are launching our fourth class in October 2017.
  • Executive Edge for Women: Executive Edge for Women is designed to develop and empower top female leaders at our company. The Executive Edge for Women program focuses on four major learning areas: Personal Branding, Communication, Emotional Intelligence, and Business Protocol. Additionally, one of the elements that makes the Executive Edge for Women program so special is the Pay It Forward component, where we ask participants to share their insights and learnings with other women at D&B and expand the impact of the program at a much broader level. The Executive Edge for Women program launched in 2015 and has graduated two "classes" so far, totaling 77 participants. We are launching our third class in October 2017 with 40 additional participants.
  • Sustainable High Performance: Sustainable High Performance (SHP) is an innovative, impactful and global program launched in 2015 to demonstrate Dun & Bradstreet's investment in our team members as people (not just employees) that have priorities, cares and responsibilities outside of their professional work. The SHP program educates team members on a number of different strategies that can be employed to optimize mindset, recovery, movement and nutrition - all with the intent of bringing your best self to work and at home. Through a carefully crafted engagement approach, Dun & Bradstreet provides frequent touchpoints, learning opportunities and networking and support for all global team members in their SHP journey. In 2016, we recorded over 15,000 SHP engagements with team members (via video view and social media) and over 174,000 miles of movement!
  • Do Good Week: To celebrate our 174th anniversary on July 20, 2015, Dun & Bradstreet started Do Good Week, an annual week of giving, as a way to contribute to the communities where we live and work. In addition to helping our community, Do Good Week events are terrific opportunities for team building, or for collaborating with other teams, all while giving back. In 2016, team members organized more than 250 volunteer activities to give our ~5,000 global employees the opportunity to support charities and organizations in need. In total we clocked more than 7,700 volunteer hours during Do Good Week in 2016.  We anticipate meeting or exceeding our volunteer hours during our upcoming global Do Good Week scheduled July 17 - 21, 2017.
  • All Stars Project: Dun & Bradstreet is a sponsoring company for the All Stars Project, enabling 100 summer internships for high school students from under-served communities.
  • Summer Interns: Dun & Bradstreet’s Summer Intern program started in 2011 with a class of 25 in the U.S., but last year officially expanded globally and grew even more in 2017. Our interns learn and are involved in many projects that demonstrate how we build the most valuable relationships in business.  Adding two more offices to the location list, the program now includes 13 global locations. In 2017, Dun & Bradstreet has 108 (up from 102 in 2016) new employees as part of this year's intern class.  38% made their way into the program through employee referrals; 35% percent were recruited from their university campus and the remaining 27% found their way to Dun & Bradstreet via external job boards. 
  • StartOut: Dun & Bradstreet became a corporate partner to StartOut in 2016. StartOut is an organization that provides support and mentorship to LGBT entrepreneurs.
  • Global Mentoring Program: In late July, Dun & Bradstreet will introduce a formal global mentoring program designed to purposely promote professional and personal growth among our team members.  Our initial mentoring pairs will include approximately 30 team members across five locations.  By the end of 2017, we expect to open up the program more broadly for greater impact across our team member base.
  • Site Committees and Events: At Dun & Bradstreet, we are committed to bringing the company values alive by ensuring our work environment fosters team member participation.  Our Site Committees create a true sense of belonging and team spirit through the local events they develop for each site (e.g., Chinese New Year, Ramadan, Pride Month, etc.).  As a result, we are a more modern and forward leaning culture.
  • Bring A Child to Work Day: Each year, Dun & Bradstreet participates in “Bring A Child to Work Day”.  The event is open to team members’ children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews in grades 3rd – 8th.  The children participate in educational and interactive activities throughout the day and have an opportunity to job shadow for a period of time.
