Shamrock Home Loans 3.27.23

RIMBA Member Voted #1 in Nation

Shamrock Home Loans has been named the #1 Best Company to Work For in the industry by the National Mortgage News.

Shamrock, headquartered in Rumford, RI, operating in 20+ states and employing over 100, was founded by CEO, Dean Harrington – former RIMBA President (2017-2018) – in 1989.

“What makes it a good place to work is giving people a challenging set of duties, but a safe place to make mistakes”, said Harrington. “They’ll be more bold and try different things, taking on bigger challenges and their confidence level just skyrockets.”

This recognition program, created by National Mortgage News and Best Companies Group, is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the U.S. mortgage industry. This year’s list included 50 honorees, with the final rankings in a special report published on March 9, 2023.

“It’s been a tough time for everyone in the housing finance ecosystem, but these top-ranked companies have proven that it’s possible to be strategically agile while remaining supportive to your employees,” said Heidi Patalano, editor-in-chief of National Mortgage News. “In the face of industry consolidation and broader economic uncertainties, these lenders were particularly admirable in showing how much they value their greatest assets — the people that work for them.”

Companies from across the United States entered a two-part survey process to determine the National Mortgage News’ Best Mortgage Companies to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
