To foster innovation, employees of this New York-based global institutional trading network participate in weekly scrums, weekend hack-a-thons and occasional off-site brainstorming sessions. New hires are welcomed to the company through an onboarding program called "Swim Camp." And the company gives veteran employees opportunities to improve their management, leadership and technical skills through an education partnership with New York University. The Liquidnet for Good program encourages employees to give back to the community. As part of just one Liquidnet for Good project, more than 60 employees have traveled to Rwanda as volunteers to set up IT systems, establish accounting functions and provide leadership training for orphans and vulnerable youth affected by the country's genocide.
