Churchill Mortgage, the Brentwood, Tennessee headquartered mortgage provider has been recognized as a “Top Workplace” by The Tennessean for the seventh consecutive year. The Tennessean assesses companies based on positive employee feedback gathered through anonymous surveys administered by technology-based employee engagement tools provider Energage.
“Recognition alone as a top workplace is an accomplishment, but to be named seven years in a row is a testament to our dedication to cultivating an outstanding team and environment,” said Mike Hardwick, President of Churchill Mortgage. “Our employees are our most important assets and what allows us to deliver services unlike other lenders. Their commitment to this service has led to tremendous growth where we can better assist communities nationwide in achieving their home-buying goals. We aim to continue that tradition.”
According to Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, “Top Workplaces is more than just recognition. Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Churchill Mortgage said that it offers a smarter career path for its employees by supporting mortgage professionals at new and existing branches with thorough training and equipping them with proven, executable strategies that grow their business and ensure they are backed by world-class operations, compliance and sales teams.
Additionally, Churchill said that it offers an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) program, now in its seventh year, allowing employees to benefit from their success and personal investment in the company in the form of annual allocations of stock in the parent company, which provides them with a long-term retirement investment.
“Working for a company like Churchill Mortgage is inspiring,” said Stephanie Christian, Director of Sales Conversion for Churchill Mortgage. “They truly value people over profits, which is reflected across the entire organization and through the close relationships built with borrowers. The environment here has cultivated a culture and commitment to mentoring borrowers throughout their journey towards debt-free homeownership. At the end of the day, helping someone achieve financial freedom is truly rewarding.”
