The ranking is based on feedback from more than 400,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in every sector of the economy. Employees were surveyed about their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential to an excellent work environment.
“It’s very rewarding to have Fortune recognize New American Funding for having an outstanding culture that’s conducive for women to excel,” said Patty Arvielo, Co-Founder and President of New American Funding. “I’m passionate about empowering women to succeed so we continuously strive to create an environment where there are no limits on what anyone can achieve and where women know they have the opportunity to take a seat at the table.”
Arvielo plays a key role with empowering women in her organization by mentoring them and opening the door for them to move ahead through an initiative known as, “If you want to grow, we want to know”. She has built one of the fastest-growing companies in America while constructing a team that’s comprised of about 59% women with many holding C-level positions. The company has also established opportunities for women to thrive by hosting events like, “Rise and Lead” which is geared toward elevating women entrepreneurs in the housing industry.
Consequently, New American Funding has received several notable accolades including a Gold Stevie® for Employer of the Year and #1 Top Workplace in Orange County by OC Register.
