Financial services giant Fidelity, which has a 337-acre campus in Westlake, announced in its annual report that the company plans to hire 4,000 more people in the first half of 2023—502 of them in Texas.
The jobs will be 37% client-facing hires and 26% technology hires, the company said. Fidelity saw a 20% increase in roles added in Texas in 2022 versus 2021, giving it a 23% increase in headcount year over year.
More than 6,000 work at Fidelity’s campus in Westlake
The company headcount in Texas at the end of 2022 was 9,044 employees, Boston-based Fidelity said. More than 6,000 people work at Westlake’s two-building campus, which is home to more than 30 Fidelity business units.
“We take a long-term view to investing in our overall workforce and our people, just as we do in our businesses,” Kirsten Kuykendoll, head of talent acquisition at Fidelity, said in a statement. “We’re not only continuing to fill new roles in 2023, but we’re investing in the people who work here through our benefits, career, and development opportunities. We encourage our associates to ask, ‘What’s next?’ and learn-by-doing across our company, which offers an unmatched amount of career exploration pathways.”
The company said the announcement of additional hiring in 2023 follows years of record hiring by the company.
A privately owned company, Fidelity has been attracting new employees by rolling out new benefits to make long-term investments in its people, including a fully funded undergraduate degree benefit.
Fidelity said it offers career pathways as part of a revised onboarding experience that it said is designed to promote mobility and experiential learning.
The sprawling Westlake campus has lush green pastures that often contain longhorns. It has two manmade lakes that offer employees scenic views.
