National Mortgage News presents its third annual Best Mortgage Companies to Work For — an awards program dedicated to recognizing the industry’s premier employers and providing them with employee feedback highlighting their strengths and weaknesses.
The program is a collaboration between National Mortgage News and the Best Companies Group, which conducts extensive employee surveys and reviews employer reports on benefits and policies. The employee survey covers eight topics: Leadership and Planning; Corporate Culture and Communications; Role Satisfaction; Work Environment; Relationship with Supervisor; Training, Development and Resources; Pay and Benefits; and Overall Engagement.
Following a thorough assessment of the organizations, the survey data was analyzed and the companies received an overall score that determines their rankings. The overall score comprises the employee survey (worth 75%) and the employer questionnaire (worth 25%). To qualify for consideration, organizations with 25 or more employees need a minimum response rate of 40% while organizations with 25 or fewer employees need 80%.
