Veterans United Home Loans has ranked 17th on Fortune Magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2020

Veterans United Home Loans has ranked 17th on Fortune Magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2020. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Veterans United, according to statistics kept by the Department of Veterans Affairs, has been included, and the company was the highest-ranked mortgage lender to make the list.
 
“The employees are the heart and soul of what makes Veterans United what it is,” said Nate Long, chief executive officer of Veterans United Home Loans. “Their passion to make a difference in the lives of veterans and servicemembers is inspiring. It is also inspiring to see their drive to enhance the lives of each other, each other’s families and our communities. That desire to put others first is the driving force of our company’s culture and success.”
 
Veterans United experienced significant growth in 2019, welcoming more than 1,000 new employees across the country. The lender is opening a new corporate office near downtown St. Charles, Mo., where it will bring more than 150 mortgage origination and IT jobs to the St. Louis region.
 
Veterans United’s 3,100 employees focus on helping veterans and their families secure homeownership. The company’s success is tied directly to living out its employee-created values: “Be Passionate and have fun, Deliver Results with integrity and Enhance Lives every day.”
 
In 2019, Veterans United Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Veterans United, donated nearly $1 million to support mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder initiatives across the nation through the Warrior Campaign. The campaign grew out of employees’ expressed desire to rally behind those who face the often-silent battle of mental illness and to show support for organizations who are helping raise awareness. In total, the foundation donated to 29 charities throughout the country. The foundation is supported by the company and its employees.
 
“The 100 Best show the way forward,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These companies have created Great Places to Work For All—for everyone, no matter who a person is or what they do for the organization. As a result, they have built a path to realize the promise of artificial intelligence, gain strength from a diversity of perspectives, and thrive during downturns.”
 
In 2019, Veterans United was named one of the country’s “100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in 2019,” coming in at number 11, in a list was compiled by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
