LINTHICUM, MD, December 4, 2015— NFM Lending is proud to announce that it was ranked #1 of 100 Top Workplaces in the Baltimore area by The Baltimore Sun. This is the fourth year in a row that NFM Lending has been named a Top Workplace. NFM Lending was also highlighted by the newspaper for being ranked No. 1 Midsized Company.

Each year, The Baltimore Sun distributes a survey to employees of Baltimore area workplaces. The survey analyzes the job satisfaction and engagement of the employees, and the values and organizational health of the company.

“It took years to develop our culture and to find our identity,” said Jan Ozga, President of NFM Lending. “Now it has become infectious and a way of life at NFM. It’s not winning this award that’s exciting— it’s knowing that people love where they work. The financial rewards mean nothing in comparison to receiving this award four years in a row. At the end of the day, if you have built a company where people love working, then you have done your job as a leader. In order for NFM to operate, we must be profitable; in order for NFM to survive, we must always have a fair and happy work environment.”

NFM Lending prides itself on its exceptional culture. The company’s executive team has an open door policy, which allows a clear line of communication between management and staff. Employees are encouraged to voice their questions and concerns directly to management, so that they can be addressed promptly and correctly. Managers often surprise staff members for their birthdays, and the company holds contests, holiday celebrations, health fairs, and other initiatives to show employees their appreciation.

“We believe that it is important to have an environment where people feel welcomed, encouraged, appreciated, and most importantly, heard,” said Bernadette Pearson, HR Director. “The people of NFM are what make NFM so unique, and without their input and passion, NFM’s executives could not have built or continued to maintain the culture we have today. I feel honored to work with such amazing people and to be part of such a unique culture. “

In addition to this most recent award, NFM Lending has been recognized many times for its exceptional company culture. In 2015 alone, it was named one of the Washington Post’s Top Work Places in the Washington, D.C. area; a Top Mortgage Employer by National Mortgage Professional Magazine; and one of Mortgage Executive Magazine’s Top 50 Best Companies to Work For. NFM Lending is proud of each member of its team, and the work they do to make NFM a Top Workplace.
