October 1, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--Better Mortgage, a digital mortgage company working to improve access to home financing for all Americans, is pleased to announce that it has been named as one of Crain’s 2018 100 Best Places to Work in New York City. This is the 10 th year of the annual ranking, which spotlights companies who have fostered supportive and engaging workplaces to the benefit of both their employees, and the larger economy. These rankings rely on employee engagement surveys, which account for 75% of the ranking calculation.

“Since our founding, we have strived to create a work culture in which our employees can thrive, both in and out of the office. This is key to any organization’s success,” said Vishal Garg, CEO and co-founder of Better. “It is an honor to be recognized as one of New York City’s best places to work, particularly with the knowledge that it comes as a result of our employees’ own feedback. We could not have achieved what we have without them, and their satisfaction, as well as the satisfaction of our customers, is what matters most of all.”

Better is on a mission to expand access to home finance across the U.S. In addition to this latest recognition by Crain’s, the company was named as one of Forbes’ Fintech 50 in February 2018. The company also celebrated several major milestones in 2018, including growing its revenue 3.5x, since 2017, and crossing the $1.5 billion loans funded mark. Currently approved to offer mortgages in 19 states, Better is projected to expand to an additional 4 states by years end.

“Working at Better, you’ll find a passionate group of skilled individuals, supported by a leadership team that prioritizes developing all of our employees, both professionally and personally,” added Nicole Goldberg, Director, People Operations. “We’ve put significant effort into creating thoughtful programs for our employees, from a company book club, to our BetterWomen speaker series, as well as our much-loved weekly Friday Feast. We pride ourselves on the culture that this has created and we’re thrilled to be included on this prestigious list.”

To come up with their selections, Crain’s, with the help of Best Companies Group, surveyed more than 20,000 employees across New York City. These employees responded to a confidential survey covering topics such as working conditions, benefits, and corporate culture. Employers filled out a separate survey, which was also part of the methodology. The top 100 companies will be honored at a celebratory luncheon on November 30, and the final ranking of the top 100 will be announced on December 3.
