I’m proud to know that our family of associates gave our company such high rankings enabling us to be named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” for the second year in a row by Seattle Business Magazine. Our highest scoring category was for “executive leadership”. Receiving this accolade strengthens my commitment to build a culture that makes this a great place to work, while continually improving the resources our associates and customers need in order to be successful.
At Evergreen Home Loans, we have a vision to “change the world one relationship at a time.” That vision starts from the inside out. I believe that when you treat your employees like family, you can expect positive results. We know that when our associates feel good about where they work, they’re empowered to WOW customers one relationship at a time. Our culture emphasizes going the extra mile for our customers in the hopes that we create customers for life.
We hear from our associates that they’re highly satisfied because we care about them. This is evidenced by our low turnover rate which is below the industry average. Creating an environment that encourages our associates to find ways to make a creative difference makes coming to work something to look forward to each day. We’re constantly seeking new associates that are willing to go that extra step for our customers and our associates, and who also desire a fun work environment with great benefits.
In fact, having fun is one of our core convictions and something we make time for daily. It’s important to make time for fun because the business of making home loans can be challenging. Frankly, there’s nothing that I like better than to hear the sound of laughter ruminating in the hallways of our home office. At Evergreen, our employees aren’t just associates – they’re like family. They are the key to our vision and they certainly change the world one relationship at a time.
