NFM Lending Receives Five Cultural Excellence Awards from

Linthicum, May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NFM Lending is proud to announce that it has received five new Cultural Excellence Awards from Top Workplaces USA.

NFM has been praised for its compensation and benefits, innovation, leadership, purpose and values, and work-life flexibility among top companies. These Cultural Excellence Awards complement the Top Workplaces USA achievement won in 2022 and 2021 and the Cultural Badges awarded in 2021.

“We are honored that Top Workplaces USA has recognized us for these Cultural Excellence Awards,” said NFM President Jan Ozga. “Each of these areas is one we have paid close attention to and continually strive for improvement. I am encouraged that our employees have responded so positively to issues such as compensation and benefits and work-life flexibility. It confirms that the things we do make a real difference in the working lives of our valued employees.”

NFM Lending will add these new Cultural Excellence Awards to those previously given in 2021, including Thought Leaders, Top Leaders, Communication, Innovation, Appreciation, Employee Wellbeing, Values, Empowerment employees, professional development and remote work.

The Top Workplaces program distributes a survey to employees of each nominated company, asking them to rate their workplaces. The survey asks participants to rank their companies based on quality of leadership, work-life balance, compensation and benefits, and more.

Since the company’s inception in 1998, NFM Lending has grown from a small mortgage brokerage in Baltimore to a national lender with branches across the United States.

NFM Lending prides itself on its exceptional culture. The company fills the employee work environment with encouragement and teamwork, creating a positive work environment that rewards commitment and performance. Management also encourages employees to voice their questions and concerns directly so that they are addressed quickly and appropriately. Additionally, managers often surprise staff members on their birthdays, and the company holds contests, parties, and other initiatives to encourage collaboration and show employees their appreciation. As remote work has become more prevalent in the corporate culture, NFM Lending has embraced this shift to further improve their team’s work-life balance.

In addition to this award, NFM Lending is regularly recognized for its outstanding corporate culture. Other awards include: “Best Mortgage Employer” by National Magazine for Mortgage Professionals; ‘Best Workplace’ by The Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post; ’50 best places to work’ by Mortgage Professionals Magazine; and finalist in the “Best Places to Work” by Baltimore Business Journal. NFM Lending is proud of these accomplishments and of each member of the team for their work in making NFM a top-notch place to work.
