Madison, WI. February 03, 2022 – Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, a top ten nationwide mortgage lender, announced that it won the #1 spot for 2022 Top Workplaces USA award issued by Energage, an organization that develops solutions to build and brand top workplaces. Fairway was also the top-ranked Top Workplaces USA national winner for companies with more than 2,500 employees in 2021.
Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list were chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey distributed by Energage. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“We are beyond humbled to be recognized as the best place to work for the second year in a row,” said Steve Jacobson, founder, and CEO of Fairway Independent Mortgage. "We value our employees greatly at Fairway, so we provide them with a supportive culture and work environment where they can thrive and grow their careers. We see culture as a day-to-day discipline. We take nothing for granted as we never know what is around the corner."
“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
Fairway continues to march to the beat of its own drum when it comes to its company culture that is centered around workplace satisfaction. For example, as many organizations face pushback from workers who are mandated to return to work in person, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation continues to allow its employees to choose whether to return to the office or not.
Fairway’s dedication to prioritizing its employees’ safety and health also encompasses several innovative wellness initiatives. Fairway made pro-grade exercise machines available to employees with more than a year of service, enabling them to work out at home, and the company distributed 5,828 machines at a cost of $19.6 million. Fairway also offers virtual fitness classes for employees and their families, as well as parenting webinars and extensive mental health resources.
