Guild Mortgage has been named a “2019 Top Workplace” by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
 
Now in its eighth year, the Top Workplaces Program honors companies that have outstanding workplace culture and business environments highly valued by their employees. The rankings are based on the results of an anonymous employee feedback survey administered by Energage LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement, and a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.
 
“We value the Top Workplace program because it puts the employee at the center of the process,” said Mary Ann McGarry, Guild’s president and chief executive officer. “Our culture is based on doing what’s right and a commitment to empowering our people. We’re very pleased that our employees feel we are providing the right tools they need to succeed.”
 
Guild Mortgage, which employs 162 people in the greater St. Louis area, was ranked 27th in the mid-size company category in this year’s rankings. Guild entered the market in early 2018 when it purchased certain assets of Cornerstone Mortgage Inc., expanding its presence in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas.
 
Cornerstone Mortgage, which now operates as Guild in the Midwest, is the only mortgage lender to earn the “Top Workplace” distinction from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch every year since 2012.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recognized 150 employers as “Top Workplaces” for 2019 based on survey responses from more than 46,000 people. The survey focused on matters relating to workplace culture, including alignment, connection, effectiveness, management and engagement. The winners range from small businesses to some of the region's biggest corporations.
