Company recognized among industry's top 50 employers for second straight year
KALAMAZOO, MI (March 7, 2022) - Amerifirst Home Mortgage announces that it has been named one of the top 50 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For in 2022 by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group. This is the second straight year the independent mortgage lender has been honored with this designation.
This annual survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry. National Mortgage News revealed the final rankings in a special report published today.
Amerifirst ranked #40 on the list.
“This year’s top companies have brought their A-game in supporting their teams through continued disruption,” said Heidi Patalano, editor-in-chief of National Mortgage News at Arizent. “The events of the past two years have underscored how important it is to be a thoughtful employer that offers a number of ways to show how much they value their ‘human capital’ and these firms did it best, according to their very own employees.”
"It's a tremendous honor to be included in such an impressive list of our nation's mortgage companies," said Dave Gahm, Amerifirst Co-CEO and Co-Founder. "We're proud to be recognized for our collaborative culture and to have such a dynamic team who live our core values and mission with passion and purpose in our local communities every day. We're people caring about people, and it shows."
Companies from across the United States participated in a two-part survey process to determine the rankings. The top 50 companies were identified based on the evaluation of each company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. An employee survey also measured the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
