Rockville, MD – March 2, 2017 – Apex Home Loans, the largest independent mortgage lender headquartered in Montgomery County, announced today that Washingtonian magazine selected the company as one of the region’s 50 Great Places to Work. The bi-annual, selective award recognizes workplaces with a commitment to meaningful work, opportunities for employees to learn and grow, corporate philanthropy, and the community.
“Wow. We are so honored to receive this award,” Apex CEO Craig Strent said. “At Apex, we understand that meaningful work is about more than just pay and benefits-and we couldn’t be more proud to be selected among only 50 other companies in Greater Washington.”
Washingtonian’s feature in their March issue highlights Apex Home Loans' commitment to employee experience among the reasons for their selection. Apex provides employees with a $100 space beautification allowance to invigorate their office when they join the team, hosts an annual sailing trip and crab feast in Annapolis, MD (along with three other team appreciation events), and fosters a culture of celebrating the small things, hosting surprise events in-office that feature specialty foods and impromptu celebrations. The company leadership also recognizes its employees for work well done and helps their team do the same with a Rock Star wall, a wall of the office designated specifically for notes of colleague appreciation. This robust workplace culture is underpinned by generous benefits, including a 401k with a 10 percent match.
The award arrives on the heels of two honors calling attention to the leadership and fast-growth at Apex Home Loans. SmartCEO Magazine selected the company among its Future 50 award winners earlier this month, and highlighted the company’s E-level staff for their ideas around customer experience and culture in the magazine’s Best Run Companies release.
