Freedom Mortgage Honored with 2023 National Top Workplaces USA Award


Third time in a row Freedom Mortgage has been identified as a top place to work nationwide

Boca Raton, FL – February 2, 2023 – Freedom Mortgage, one of the largest full-service independent mortgage companies and a top Veterans Administration (VA) and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) lender in the U.S., has earned the 2023 Top Workplaces USA award, issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces.

This is the third time Freedom Mortgage Corporation has been honored with a Top Workplaces USA Award since its inaugural launch in 2021. Top Workplaces USA celebrates organizations with 150 or more employees that have built great cultures.

"We are honored to be recognized again as a Top Workplaces USA," said Stanley C. Middleman, Freedom Mortgage president and CEO. "To have our employees endorse Freedom Mortgage as a great place to work especially during the challenging times we have been facing in the mortgage industry means a great deal. We will continue to do our best to support our employees and provide opportunities for them to grow within Freedom Mortgage."

Eric Rubino, Energage CEO, said, "Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees. That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they're allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends."

Middleman credited Freedom Mortgage employees for the company's continued success. Despite challenges faced by the mortgage industry, the company services the mortgages of nearly 2 million homeowners representing over $452 billion in loans. The company also donated more than $600,000 last year and saw its highest employee volunteer engagement with nearly 2,000 hours spent bettering local communities.

The Top Workplaces program has a 15-year history of surveying more than 20 million employees and recognizing the top organizations across 60 markets for regional Top Workplaces awards. Over 42,000 organizations were invited to participate 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 are calculated by comparing the survey's research-based statements, including 15 Culture Drivers that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
