Chicago, Nov. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chicago (November 10, 2017) -- Guaranteed Rate, one of the largest retail mortgage lenders in the nation, was named to the 2017 Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces list, making the top ten in the large employer category for the second year in a row. This is the seventh time Guaranteed Rate has been included on this prestigious list. The Top Workplaces list is comprised of Chicagoland companies and is based solely on employee surveys measuring overall employee engagement and satisfaction, including compensation, diversity, leadership, and training.



“We are thrilled to make the Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces list again and that our employees are feeling engaged, having fun, and experiencing a healthy work-life balance which all reflect our core values,” said Guaranteed Rate Chief Executive Officer and Founder Victor Ciardelli. “We pride ourselves on fostering a unique, collaborative culture and employing the best of the best to be among the top tech companies in Chicago.”

Guaranteed Rate’s perks include an on-site nurse practitioner and an in-house cafe that serves breakfast, gourmet lunches and a healthy afternoon snack featuring a fresh fruit smoothie bar. Other wellness benefits are the fitness center with yoga classes and a masseuse who treats employees to monthly complimentary massages. The company holds regular employee-appreciation celebrations including parties on its 5,000 square feet rooftop deck, group sports outings and other bonding events like off-site ping pong tournaments. Top sales performers this year enjoyed trips to Mykonos, Greece and the Ritz Carlton Cancun with the Amalfi Coast and the Grand Hyatt Bel Mar Resort in the Bahamas slated for 2018.

Giving back is also a huge part of the Guaranteed Rate culture, with employees working together to positively impact the community through food drives, annual fundraisers and the Guaranteed Rate Foundation, which donates funds to those in desperate need of help. This year’s employee-driven BBQ, Bourbon and Blues fundraiser garnered more than $285,000, with every penny going to those in need of assistance.

The entire list of Top Workplaces may be found in a special magazine insert in the November 10 edition of the Chicago Tribune or at ChicagoTribune.com.
