Robots and Jelly Beans: NATIONALLY recognized as one of the best companies to work for 2019!
radius Employees Can’t Wait To Tell the World —Yes, We are one of the best national companies to work for!
The accolades just keep coming! Right on the heels of being named one of Boston’s Top Places to Work (again!), we just found out that we’ve been named one of 2019’s “Best Mortgage Companies to Work For,” a program created by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group. This annual survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry. The inaugural list is made up of 37 companies.
We couldn’t be more proud of these awards because they don’t come from some big monolithic organization that’s grading us on a set scale of metrics, nor are they “top down,” with someone in management filing out a score card.
Instead, these awards come organically—directly from our employees. They are an affirmation that the culture and core values we work so hard to create resonate with our team—and that they come here every day, excited to pursue the goal of making mortgages better.
As National Mortgage Best Company explains, “The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics; the second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.”
The Boston Top Places to Work process was similar, with employees taking anonymous survey covering 24 factors.
And it got us thinking…what inspires employees to actually fill out these surveys? After all, these days we are inundated with customer service surveys—they come with our happy hour check at restaurants, with our emailed receipt from the mall and with the appointment reminder from our dentist.
So what spurred radius employees to take time out of their busy days and answer them? All of us know what an awesome company we work for so we want to tell the world about it and wear the badge of “Top Place to Work” with pride, is what we heard.
In Their Own Words
“I was motivated by pride! I consider it an honor to work at a company that is regarded a Top Place to Work and am proud of what we do here. The survey seemed like the perfect platform to spread that word!”
– Kayla Shahvari, Executive Assistant
“I’m new here and already seeing it’s a cultural where everyone participates. I’m inspired with the level of engagement that employees have and I want to be part of it.”
– Julie Locke, Operations Strategic Advisor
“I had to make sure that radius financial group was given solid consideration as a Top Place to Work…because it truly is! I’ve worked in a number of offices throughout the years, and NONE have come close to cultivating an inclusive, motivating, and generally fun environment for their employees like radius financial group does. From concert and sports ticket contests, to our quarterly radius rallies and yearly employee celebration party…all the way down to the motivational Friday Updates sent out weekly from our Principal, Sarah Valentini, and the daily pep talks from our Sales Development Officer, Todd Belham, we have a constant stream of positive and constructive feedback to help us all grow.”
– Michael Pollick Jr., Loan Officer Assistant
“I have not been this happy and fulfilled at a company in my adult life. Radius deserves this recognition as they work hard to support their employees, as well as providing the best service possible to their customers.”
– Samantha Steinhage, Loan Officer
“We have pride in the workplace—it was an honor to be nominated, and I did my part in voting so we could hit the charts!”
– Dominique Gougeon, Loan Officer Assistant
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
