These are the best places to work in housing

Find out which companies made Fortune's list

Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work this week announced the winners of its 2020 Best Companies to Work For list, ranking America’s best workplace environments for large companies. And multiple industry titans in the housing space made the list.

The winners were determined by anonymous survey feedback that analyzed the efforts each organization took to create a great working environment for all.

“Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees report about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do,” Fortune said in a statement.

This year, Veterans United Home Loans made the list for the fifth consecutive year, coming in at No. 17. CEO Nate Long attributes the win to his employees, which he says are the driving force behind the company’s success.

“The employees are the heart and soul of what makes Veterans United what it is,” said Long. “Their passion to make a difference in the lives of Veterans and service members is inspiring. It is also inspiring to see their drive to enhance the lives of each other, each other’s families and our communities. That desire to put others first is the driving force of our company’s culture and success.”
