What exactly does the title “Top Workplace” entail? Any loyal employee at any company may feel strongly their team is the best. And that’s great!

The Partners at Union Home Mortgage Corp. (UHM) feel this special bond with their unified brand. Let’s take this a step further and add a little proof to the pudding. For the past two consecutive years, UHM is honored to be named a Top 100 Workplace in Northeast Ohio by The Plain Dealer – ranking #13 in mid-sized companies for 2016.

The Top Workplaces program, administered by WorkplaceDynamics, identifies organizations with superior organizational health and workplace engagement.   WorkplaceDynamics collects data from a twenty-two question survey and analyzes results to measure organizational health (including alignment, execution, connection) and the job (including work, pay/benefits, and an employee’s relationship with their manager) to compare to historical records and industry benchmarks.

In addition to being a Top Workplace in Northeast Ohio, UHM is exceeding expectations in the Mortgage Lending industry, too.   Here’s a quick look at a few meaningful numbers:

Execution includes Partners’ feelings of efficiency, senior management understanding, encouragement of new ideas and good inter-departmental cooperation.

In Connection, UHM scored 20% higher than the Mortgage Lending Industry benchmark.

In Alignment, UHM scored 19% higher than the Mortgage Lending Industry benchmark.
