Freedom Mortgage Corporation Honored With 2022 National Top Workplaces USA Award


Energage’s award recognizes exemplary companies across the country, Freedom Mortgage ranked #21 under companies with more than 2,500+ employees

Boca Raton, FL – February 9, 2022 – Freedom Mortgage, one of the nation’s largest full-service mortgage companies and a leader in VA and government-insured lending, has earned the 2022 Top Workplaces USA award, issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces.

This is the second time Freedom Mortgage Corporation has been named a Top Workplaces USA since its inaugural launch last year. Top Workplaces USA offers national recognition for large organizations, those with more than 150 employees, and those that may have operations in multiple markets.

"We are honored Freedom Mortgage is recognized once again as a Top Workplaces USA," said Stanley C. Middleman, Freedom Mortgage founder and CEO. “We strive to provide the right culture, benefits, and opportunities for our employees to thrive. This endorsement means so much because our employees ranked Freedom Mortgage so highly and shared that they enjoy working here.”

Eric Rubino, Energage CEO, said, "During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance. When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."

Middleman credited Freedom Mortgage employees for the company’s continued success in 2021. Despite business challenges created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company originated $131 billion in loans and serviced nearly 1.9 million borrowers last year.

In addition to Freedom Mortgage being ranked a Top Workplaces USA last year, the company has been recognized as a regional Top Workplace, consecutively over the years by The Indianapolis Star and The Philadelphia Inquirer. Additionally, last year, Freedom Mortgage was named one of Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces and joined the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll for being recognized for the seventh time as one of the fastest growing companies across the country.

Top Workplaces USA offers national recognition for large organizations that may have operations in multiple markets. This is the second year for Top Workplaces USA, built on the program’s 14-year history surveying more than 20 million employees across 54 markets for the regional Top Workplaces awards.

Several thousand organizations from across the country were invited, and more than 1,100 participated in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage. Results were calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 Culture Drivers that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
