been named a winner of the 2017 Top Workplace Award by The San Diego Union-Tribune
, earning the distinction for the fifth consecutive year.
The Top Workplaces Program honors companies that have outstanding workplace culture and business environments highly valued by their employees. The lists are based solely on the results of an anonymous employee feedback survey administered by Energage LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.
The online survey ranks employee levels of satisfaction with their jobs, confidence in the future prospects of the company, feelings of appreciation, manager effectiveness and trust in the company. The Top Workplace survey went to employers and staff of public, private, non-profit and governmental organizations with 50 or more employees and rankings require a minimum 35 percent response rate to qualify.
Guild Mortgage, which employs more than 600 people in San Diego County, was ranked fifth in the large company category.
“Our two greatest strengths are our entrepreneurial culture and our people,” said Mary Ann McGarry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Guild Mortgage. “We encourage a listening culture at Guild and value the perspectives of all our employees. We are so pleased that our people have continued to express their satisfaction with our company and plans for the future.”
