Best Companies to Work For 2015: Pulte Mortgage

They're about low turnover, long tenure


Published:

Pulte Mortgage LLC

www.pultemortgage.com

Location: Englewood

Rank: 4 in the large company category

The culture: Low turnover, long tenure. Results stated: “Our company operates on a first-name basis. Our email directory is sorted by first name, not last, and each employee has a photo uploaded in email so employees can put a face with a name. Photos and name plates are also posted outside each row of workstations throughout the building so that ... we get to know one another.”

Perks: The Denver-based headquarters includes an on-site game room complete with foosball, darts, ping-pong and shuffleboard, along with a private library. The lunchroom has a large outdoor dining area and big-screen TV. A ‘Winter Bazaar’ allows employees to sell items or crafts they’ve made to other employees.

Giving back: Pulte Mortgage gives a portion of every loan closing to MBA Opens Doors Foundation, which provides housing payment grants to parents and guardians with critically ill or injured children, allowing them to take unpaid leave without jeopardizing their homes.

The inside scoop:  When one employee was diagnosed with breast cancer and set to undergo surgery, the team learned that not only was she living alone with no one to help her after the surgery, she was also sleeping on a mattress on the floor. Knowing it would be difficult for her to get in and out of bed after the surgery, her department unanimously pooled their resources. Together they purchased and set up a new bed before her surgery. In addition, the team continued to donate money for groceries that were delivered several times after her surgery along with home-cooked meals. In April 2015, that team member celebrated her sixth cancer-free year.
