SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Earnest has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Salt Lake Tribune for the second year in a row since opening its Salt Lake City office in November 2017.
"When the pandemic changed work as we know it, everyone at Earnest went above and beyond to support our clients in their student loan repayment journey," said Earnest Head of Operations, Brandy Heinberger. "Our culture is one of our defining differentiators, and our Salt Lake City community is tight knit, working together to encourage career development and creatively identifying new ways to serve and delight our clients in what's typically a stressful and opaque process."
The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. "In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times."
Earnest's mission is to help students reach financial freedom to live their best lives and in doing so, has grown to be the second largest student loan refinancing company in the United States. Despite the hardships over the past year, Earnest has nearly doubled the amount it refinanced from this same time last year, up from $6 billion to $11.6 billion for over 130,000 clients in the US since its inception in 2013.
