DALLAS, Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PrimeLending is honored to announce that after surveying more than 255,000 employees across the country, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized PrimeLending as 11th among the 50 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie. This honor is based on our employees' own assessments of the sense of team, fun and collegiality in our workplace.
"At PrimeLending, our people-centric culture is defined by a commitment to honesty, integrity, mutual respect and teamwork," says Todd Salmans, Chairman and CEO of PrimeLending. "This is an honor shared by all our employees and speaks to the outstanding character, work-ethic and talent of the PrimeLending family. We are so proud to be one of the Fortune and Great Place to Work® 50 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie and to know we have created an environment where people are comfortable and can excel."
PrimeLending and the 49 other winning companies were selected based on evaluations by randomly-selected employees from nearly 600 participating companies. Employees anonymously answered questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace. Companies achieving the highest overall results in their size categories were then ranked based on employees' feedback regarding the quality of the personal connections they experience with colleagues, taking into account: how comfortable people feel being themselves; how friendly, cooperative and fun the workplace is; and the strength of its teams. Survey results achieved a 95 percent confidence level and a margin of error of 5 percent or less. The total score for each company was based entirely upon employee feedback.
"Companies that develop strong personal ties among employees and make time for fun at work aren't just doing it to be nice – it's a critical strategic investment," says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. "Workplaces with strong camaraderie are associated with higher levels of cooperation, effort and effective communication - all essential ingredients of a high-performing organization."
