Freedom Mortgage Named a 2017 Top Workplace in Central Indiana
Freedom Mortgage, one of the nation’s largest mortgage providers, was named a 2017 Top Workplace two years in a row by The Indianapolis Star. Ninety area employers were listed and Freedom Mortgage was ranked #13 in the large company category. Freedom Mortgage has a prominent presence in Fishers, Indiana.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together." Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
"To be recognized two years in a row, based on feedback from the team in Indiana, is very important to our organization. We are proud to be named a 2017 Top Workplace in both the Indianapolis region and earlier this year, the Greater Philadelphia region," states Stanley C. Middleman President and CEO of Freedom Mortgage. "We value employee feedback and appreciate how many of our employees took the time to respond." Nearly 500 Freedom Mortgage employees from the Fishers, Indiana office participated in this survey.
