At Southern Trust Mortgage, we believe that our people are our most valuable asset. That’s why we prioritize investing in their personal and professional growth through ongoing training and development opportunities. We also encourage an open-door policy where our team members feel comfortable sharing their ideas, feedback, and concerns with our leadership team. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team members who strive every day to create a workplace culture that is supportive, collaborative, and enjoyable.
“Being recognized 3 years in a row as a Best Mortgage Company to Work For is both humbling and encouraging,” said Jack Lane, President of Southern Trust Mortgage. “It’s no secret that lenders everywhere asked a lot of their people this year and we made a commitment to equally pour back into the lives and health of our team members. Building a great team is done on purpose, no matter the market climate.”
Our commitment to fostering a positive workplace culture extends beyond professional development opportunities. We prioritize work-life balance by offering flexible scheduling options and remote work opportunities, which allows our team members to achieve success in both their professional and personal lives. We also celebrate our successes and milestones as a team, including regular team-building activities and outings.
We also believe in giving back to the communities we serve. Southern Trust Mortgage team members are encouraged to participate in charitable initiatives and community service projects throughout the year, and our given paid Volunteer Time Off to do so. We’re proud to say that our team members have volunteered their time and resources to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, the Susan G. Kohen Foundation, local food banks, and many others.
Additionally, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and respected. We recognize that our team members come from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, and we believe that this diversity is what makes our team so strong. Our leadership team is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion through ongoing education, training, and dialogue.
Winning a place as a Best Mortgage Company to Work For is an honor that we’re incredibly proud of. However, we know that our work doesn’t stop here. We remain committed to fostering a workplace culture that is supportive, collaborative, and inclusive for all our team members. We will continue to invest in their personal and professional growth, celebrate our successes together, and give back to the communities we serve.
This recognition is a testament to our team’s hard work, dedication, and commitment to creating a positive workplace culture. We will continue to prioritize investing in our team member’s personal and professional growth, promoting diversity and inclusion, and giving back to our communities. Thank you to our team members for making Southern Trust Mortgage a great place to work.
