Omaha Employee Base Now 20 Percent Larger Than Before TD Ameritrade Acquisition
WESTLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Senior management of The Charles Schwab Corporation met with employees in person in Omaha yesterday at TD Ameritrade facilities, the first in a series of in-person sessions with staff across the country who are beginning the process of returning to a new hybrid work model. Management’s choice of Omaha as the first of these visits since the pandemic shut down such gatherings reflects the firm’s ongoing commitment to the area and its local employee base, both critical components of the firm’s growth strategy.
“Ameritrade has been an important part of the Omaha community for more than four decades, and we are as committed to the workforce here as they are to our clients,” said Walt Bettinger, CEO of The Charles Schwab Corporation. “Omaha plays a critical role in our plans for the future, both as a hub for great talent and part of our strategy to accommodate growth as we work to serve the needs of our expanding client base.”
The firm currently has more than 300 open roles in Omaha, which span functions across the corporation’s two broker dealers, Charles Schwab & Co. and TD Ameritrade. The open roles have an emphasis on client service professionals, operations and technology. The company now has approximately 2,400 positions in the area, an increase of nearly 20 percent over the size of the employee base in November 2019 when it was first announced that the two firms would join forces.
In December 2021, Schwab announced the company had made another long-term commitment to the local area by retaining exclusive naming rights to the home of the NCAA Division I Men’s College World Series through 2029. Effective in 2022, the 24,000-seat baseball stadium and entertainment complex in downtown Omaha will be renamed Charles Schwab Field Omaha.
The open roles in Omaha are part of the firm’s nationwide recruitment efforts that also includes hiring in the states of Texas, Arizona, California, Florida and Colorado, among others. Schwab’s focus on developing a talented, diverse workforce while fostering a culture of service within its communities has resulted in the company’s recognition as a top place to work in the major markets that Schwab serves. Schwab has routinely been named as one of Fortune magazine’s top 50 World’s Most Admired Companies, a “Best of the Best” by U.S. Veterans Magazine, and has a received a 100% rating on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index since 2004. The firm was also recently named among the top 15 of America’s Best Employers for New Graduates in 2021 according to Forbes magazine.
