Top Workplaces Success:

Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation

When COVID-19 hit, few could predict that the demand for mortgages would skyrocket as remote workers looked for new homes. Fairway’s loan volume grew more than 62 percent in 2020, which made employee recruitment and retention a priority.

Key to this effort was participation in Top Workplaces. The company won the 2021 Top Workplaces USA award, and has received top regional honors in more than a dozen markets across the country since 2017. In addition to being named a Top Workplace in the financial services industry category, Fairway also received Top Workplaces awards in numerous Culture Excellence categories in 2021: Appreciation, Clued-in Leaders, Communication, and many more.

Our surveys comprise the entire employee lifecycle, so we understand why employees join the company, why they stay and why they leave. One reason we have such a great culture is because we always ask.

Top Workplaces Methodology

Because winning a Top Workplaces award is an outstanding achievement, we get a lot of questions about the process. Here’s a little information to explain how it works:

Survey statements are based on employee feedback

Top Workplaces are determined entirely by the people who know the company best: the employees.

All employee feedback is confidential

Employee feedback is collected through a confidential survey.

Organizations must achieve a minimum response rate

Companies whose employee responses meet or exceed the Top Workplaces benchmark are awarded as a Top Workplace.
