For a second consecutive year, Churchill Mortgage was recognized as a “Top Workplace” by The Tennessean. The lender is a leader in the mortgage industry providing conventional, FHA, VA and USDA residential mortgages across 33 states.
The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States. Over the past year, more than 5,000 organizations and one in every 88 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees.
Churchill’s placement on the list is the result of its employees’ overwhelmingly positive responses to the survey and its continued commitment to them. In fact, Churchill established its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) late last year, which allows employees to benefit from the value of annual allocations of stock in the parent company. Designed as a long-term retirement benefit for employee owners, all employees over the age of 21 who accrue one year of service with the company are eligible to participate.
In addition, Churchill prides itself on providing industry-leading training to its employees. Its centralized training portal, www.JoinChurchill.com, supports branch managers in recruiting and training local talent, featuring employee testimonials and informational videos about Churchill’s lending philosophy, as well as how to apply for open positions.
“Being named a ‘Top Workplace’ for a second consecutive year demonstrates our dedication to our employees – those who are helping to drive the success of our organization,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “With the lowest unemployment levels in Tennessee in six years, we remain a solid and dependable employer for Nashville and the surrounding communities as the economy continues to improve and the job market strengthens across our great state. Furthermore, as the housing market steadies, we will continue to look for industry talent to support the increased demand in mortgage products.”
