Homespire Mortgage Recognized as a 2021 “Top Workplace” By The Washington Post

GAITHERSBURG, Md., June. 26, 2021- Homespire Mortgage, a national award-winning residential mortgage lender, announced that it has once again been named as a “Top Workplace” by The Washington Post. The annual ranking recognizes organizations that have achieved the highest employee satisfaction ratings. Homespire’s continued recognition of workplace excellence is reflective of its commitment to establishing a dynamic work environment that supports the growth and development of its staff – underscoring its stated mission of “People First, Always.”

The Washington Post’s annual Top Workplace awards, powered by Energage LLC, are based on a survey of more than 20 million employees spanning 54 markets, including real estate and tech companies, for the regional Top Workplaces awards program. The full 2021 ranking is included in The Washington Post’s annual “Top Workplaces” magazine.

“I want to thank our passionate team for giving Homespire the honor of being a top workplace,” said CEO and Founder Michael Rappaport. “From day one, it has been my mission to build a company that values people above all else. The incredible work ethic of our employees only reinforces our desire and commitment to helping them reach their greatest potential.”

“Now in its eighth year, The Post’s Top Workplaces list continues to highlight the companies in the Washington-area that are leaders in company satisfaction and engagement,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “Throughout the past 15 months, these companies have had to make quick decisions in order to keep their employees safe while also balancing productivity and efficiency, and their employees have taken note of this great work.”

The program’s top-ranked companies were recognized at a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, June 17. The full list of The Washington Post’s “Top Workplace 2021” honorees is available online at:
