Guaranteed Rate Named a Top Workplace by the Boston Globe
Guaranteed Rate, one of the largest retail mortgage lenders in the nation, has been named to the 2017 Boston Globe Top Workplaces list. While this is the first time Guaranteed Rate has been included on the Boston Globe list, the company – headquartered in Chicago -- has been named a Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune seven out of the last eight years including 2017. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on employee surveys measuring overall employee engagement and satisfaction, including compensation, diversity, leadership, and training.
“I’m thrilled Guaranteed Rate is receiving well-deserved recognition as a great place to work,” says Branch Manager Shant Banosian, one of the top producing loan originators in the country. “There is no better company in the mortgage space today than Guaranteed Rate. The company utilizes the most innovative technology, offers a terrific work-life balance, and employs the best of the best in the industry. Employees are provided the necessary tools and training to be as successful as possible and exceed their own goals and expectations.”
Guaranteed Rate hosts frequent employee appreciation events, offers a comprehensive wellness program and employs the most top loan originators of any mortgage lender in the country. Top sales performers this year enjoyed trips to Mykonos, Greece and the Ritz Carlton Cancun with the Amalfi Coast and the Grand Hyatt Bel Mar Resort in the Bahamas slated for 2018.
Giving back is also a huge part of the Guaranteed Rate culture, with employees working together to positively impact the community through food drives, annual fundraisers, and the Guaranteed Rate Foundation, which donates funds to those in desperate need of help. The Guaranteed Rate team recently chaired the New England Walk for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which raised a total of $535,000.00 for the kids at St. Jude, where they are changing the way the world treats childhood cancer and no family ever receives a bill for treatment, housing or transportation while at St. Jude.
