Peter Norden, the CEO of Homebridge Financial Services, is proud to be recognized as one of the best workplaces in the mortgage industry. “This honor recognizes the positive culture we put into practice each day — one that encourages leadership, collaboration, innovation, and a workplace that feels like home,” he says. “We've given much consideration to making our corporate culture one of a kind, and this recognition underscores our efforts.”
Those efforts feature everything from quarterly all-hands calls with the CEO to providing comprehensive marketing support to empowering referral partners to going out of its way to maintain outstanding customer experiences. Then there are the all-star sales incentive trips. “Each year, Homebridge recognizes our team with a reward trip that includes exotic locations, adventurous activities, around-the-clock pampering, and prestigious awards for our top producers,” says a company rep. Not bad.
Add to that yearly biometrics, wellness examples, Weight Watchers, and yoga as well as a sliding scale of PTO ranging from 10 days your first year to 25 days after 10 years – and you have a healthy environment.
What’s more, the workforce is 30% Millennial and 63% female, and they just added an office of diversity and inclusion to further extend recruiting to historically underrepresented populations.
