“Resource fosters a culture of excellence in the work we do for our borrowers through our company's core values of respect, integrity, service and excellence,” says A. Wade Douroux, president and CEO of Resource. “We empower employees to continue learning and growing within our organization by giving them the technology and training they need to achieve success every day.”
And that everyday success starts at day one. During onboarding, Resource provides each new employee with a “welcome kit,” which features everything from Resource-branded apparel to specialty items. Then a representative of their department provides a crash course in how things are done.
Once up and running, monetary incentives help inspire productivity. Benefits feature a matching 401(k). Flexible work schedules, including work from home, enable better family life. And a collaborative culture means everyone from the receptionist to the CEO chips in to make things work. Add to that recreational sports leagues, book clubs, fitness challenges, and countless volunteer opportunities – as well as a 60% female, 22% millennial workforce – and you’ve got a vibrant work environment that’s landed Resource on the Inc. 500 three times.
Plus, happy employees make for happy clients. “Each member of our team shares a passion to help our clients achieve their financial goals through home ownership,” says Melissa Mallory, the COO of Resource. “They take pride in delivering world class service to our borrowers and enjoy representing a company that provides them the flexibility and benefits they need to be their best.”
