SCOTTSDALE, Ariz, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallick & Volk Mortgage announced that it has been named by the Phoenix Business Journal as one of the "Best Places to Work" in Phoenix. The Phoenix Business Journal, in cooperation with Quantum Workplace, surveyed Valley employees about benefits and perks, corporate culture and more, to determine the "Best Places to Work." The results were announced yesterday at a luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore.
Wallick & Volk qualified in the small business category (based on the number of employees in the Phoenix Metro area). After tabulating the results, Wallick & Volk was named 9th in the Valley for "Best Places to Work." Michael Groff, CEO and President of Wallick & Volk, attended the luncheon, along with David Heuermann, Sr. Vice President and Joe Biondo, Area Manager. Groff commented, "It's really gratifying to know that our employees enjoy the programs we offer to make this company a great place to work."
Employees gave Wallick & Volk high marks in areas such as health insurance and a 401K program. However, the most popular program appears to be a wellness contest that was offered. Employees were invited to participate in friendly competition to lose weight, increase physical fitness or quit smoking. Significant prizes were offered which enticed numerous employees to increase their overall health. Heuermann pointed out, "Helping our team members to improve their health is a win/win – healthier employees are generally happier employees. Our next wellness contest will begin on January 1, 2013, and we hope to motivate even more of our personnel to reach their health and fitness goals."
