Wespath is an employee benefits administrator for Methodist/Wesleyan-related organizations and serves as the investment manager for many not-for-profit, mission-driven organizations. While Wespath’s roots are Methodist, our employees represent a multitude of diverse religions, faiths and beliefs.
We are an organization committed to providing caring, compassionate and highly competent service to our customers and making a positive impact in people’s lives and the world overall. As a not-for-profit employer, we’re not driven by shareholder expectations. Nonetheless, our financial performance is impressive: we maintain one of the largest reporting faith-based pension and retirement funds in the world and have nearly $30 billion in assets under management (as of December 31, 2021).
Our work revolves around collaboration, innovation, and commitment to creating a brighter future for the people and organizations we serve. Wespath employees are encouraged and empowered to contribute ideas to "get better at what we do every day"—whether it's by improving our processes, enhancing the services we provide, or enriching our work environment.
Our people are Wespath’s most valued resource. Whether they’ve been here a few months, a few years or several decades, each employee plays a crucial role in Wespath’s mission of delivering the best service to our stakeholders—while also supporting each other.
You can grow your career at Wespath! We post job openings internally every week and encourage our employees to grow their careers at Wespath rather than looking externally. Nearly 15% of employees moved into new roles in 2021 alone, thanks to promotions and transfers.
While we’re always looking for talented and qualified new employees, nearly half of our current employee population has worked here at least five years. And, 34% of employees have worked here 10 years or longer—with a few who’ve reached 25-, 30- and even 40-year milestones at Wespath!
