One of the fastest-growing businesses in the country, Flat Branch Home Loans, steadily invests in helping women find their success since its birth in 2005. As a Missouri-native, we’ve built our competitive teams by broadening the composition of our boardrooms and offices across the Midwest, and applying in each new space, our deep-rooted business model -- listening-up.
Two-thirds of our more than 250 employees consist of women, including half the managerial team and a majority of our mortgage bankers. We’re not only built to hire and recruit hungry, humble and people-smart workers, but we hear and support them throughout their entire careers. Which, in part, has resulted in our speedy and sustained growth over the Midwestern-mortgage sector.
Today’s workplace buzz is often about how to ascend women to the boardroom and C-suites, but Flat Branch Home Loans already have hungry, humble and people-savvy women standing up as leaders and mentors spanning our 13-year history. Our female figures take the crown as our highest-producing Mortgage Bankers, Chief Operations Officer, Chief Financial Officer, in addition to many more management titles across all our regions.
It’s important to rely on the fact that inclusion is no simple, easy checklist. Our company’s influencers dig into those difficult conversations to honor balance, both at work and home. It’s paying attention when an employee’s spouse lost their job, or it’s their son’s first Christmas recital but their pipeline is holding them back from cheering him on. We not only encourage outspokenness, but team-up when someone needs support. In other words, we’re a family working for families. Just like the families we serve, there’s a benefit from having core values of commitment and openness.
