San Diego, California — Finance of America Reverse (FAR), a leading retirement solutions innovator, is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the first time. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at FAR. This year, 93% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 34 points higher than the average U.S. company.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that FAR is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
“We are honored to receive this recognition and to celebrate the incredibly talented, hard-working, and devoted individuals who make FAR a wonderful place to work and grow a career,” says Kristen Sieffert, FAR president. “Our primary focus is to cultivate an environment that fosters collaboration and ingenuity while encouraging everyone to strive to be their very best. Our team is our greatest asset and it is the responsibility of our senior leadership to respect, affirm, and empower everyone. We have a lofty mission at FAR – to revolutionize how people think about and fund their retirement – and the people who work at FAR are the catalysts who will help make it possible.”
Throughout the pandemic, FAR strived to build on its culture of appreciation. The company routinely coordinates virtual events and sends themed gifts and personalized communications to help colleagues stay connected. FAR also relaunched its “10 Star” initiative to strengthen its collaborative vision and highlight employees who go above and beyond the expectations of borrowers, partners, and coworkers. To further invest in employees, the company holds an annual President’s Retreat, a premier event that offers employees the chance to build an interoffice community, elevate their leadership skillsets, and spearhead creative new solutions for FAR’s borrowers. These efforts contribute to a company culture that puts employee growth and strong work relationships at the forefront of FAR’s mission.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
