Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press.

Ann Arbor, MI (November 23, 2015) - Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press. This marks the sixth time the organization has received the designation since 2009. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by an external research firm. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection.

“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“I am pleased that Gold Star has once again been named a Top Workplace,” says Gold Star CEO, Dan Milstein. “This year’s designation is especially welcome as we celebrate our 15th year in business. That we are able to maintain a sense of teamwork and cohesiveness amidst rapid national expansion is truly something to celebrate. We work hard to foster a sense of family while delivering exceptional customer service to each other, our business partners, and to our mortgage clients. To receive this honor not just once, but multiple times, is testament to our commitment to each other, and to the values upon which Gold Star was founded.”
