Washington Business Journal has named Apex Home Loans one of the Best Places to Work in Greater Washington. The sought-after honor was awarded following an evaluation process that included direct input from employees.
“We renewed our commitment to making Apex a top mortgage employer four years ago, and receiving the honor again this year validates our continued progress,” said Apex CEO Craig Strent. “Our happy and thriving team means the world to us, and we look forward to sharing our standout culture with new team members as we grow.”
Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across 5 categories according to the number of Greater Washington Area employees. The ranking found companies in the region whose employees recognize a commitment to meaningful work, a collaborative work environment, solid compensation and benefits offerings, and strong management practices.
Apex Home Loans' commitment to employee experience is the basis for their selection. Apex provides employees with a $100 space beautification allowance to invigorate their office when they join, hosts an annual sailing trip and crab feast in Annapolis, MD, and fosters a culture of celebrating the small things by hosting surprise events in-office that feature specialty foods and impromptu celebrations. Team members are encouraged to discuss ideas that could enhance customer or employee experience and complete recurrent surveys that quantify their workplace happiness. Apex in Action, the company’s employee volunteering program, provides frequent opportunities for volunteering and giving through the organizations and causes team members value. This robust workplace culture is underpinned by generous benefits, including a 401k with a 10 percent match, competitive pay, and a subsidized gym membership at LifeTime Fitness.
