Our Culture

Our high-performance and customer-focused culture is fueled by people who believe that doing the right thing is the only way to do business. Our business strategy is built on defining and differentiating ourselves through the value we deliver in helping our clients stay ahead of and capitalize on ever‑changing customer, business, and regulatory change.

Ours is an engagement‑driven culture built around:

  • Aligning individual performance to business performance
  • Engaging through effective programs and policies
  • Communicating in order to inform and inspire
  • Rewarding and recognizing performance
  • Promoting collaboration and inclusion


We seek to maintain a workforce inclusive of people from a variety of ethnic, racial, cultural, economic, and personal backgrounds. We believe that diversity promotes the principles of excellence, integrity, teamwork, trust, and respect – as we focus upon the specific skills and qualities of individuals. DST provides Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) to all associates and applicants for employment under the law.


Our success is built on trust. Our board, fellow associates, business partners, shareholders, and the communities in which we do business trust us to do the right thing in every interaction. We encourage and expect open communication about work-related ideas, suggestions, questions, and concerns.

Our Code of Business Conduct clearly states who we are and how we should operate.


We care about the causes that our associates love. Our DST Catalyst program is about volunteering, matching gifts, driving change, and sharing stories.
