First Home Mortgage Wins the Baltimore 2016 Top Workplace Award

First Home Mortgage Wins the Baltimore 2016 Top Workplace Award

Last night, First Home Mortgage accepted the 2016 Top Workplace honor from The Baltimore Sun. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey which reflects organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Over the past 26 years, First Home Mortgage has expanded to 19 states and the District of Columbia, offering home financing services, but employees feel like the Baltimore-based company provides them with a comfortable home. First Home endeavors to care for its employees, matching charitable contributions, encouraging idea sharing, offering training, rewarding top performers, and sponsoring games and other events that build camaraderie so “employees feel they can take a break from the demands of work and simply enjoy themselves”.

First Home Mortgage will continue to create the best work environment for employees, not only within Baltimore locations, but throughout all of their branches. The goal is to create fulfilling careers which will benefit the professionals at First Home as well as the clients who are served by First Home.
