Earns Second Consecutive “Great Place to Work” Certification for Finance of America Reverse

Finance of America Reverse (FAR), a leading retirement solutions innovator, is proud to announce that it has been Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the second year in a row. The prestigious award, which distinguishes FAR for the June 2022 to June 2023 period, is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience within FAR’s welcoming, empowering, and innovative culture. This year, 92% of employees said FAR is a great place to work—33 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily—it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that FAR is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“The FAR family is proud to once again receive this honor on behalf of all the amazing and dedicated individuals that make this such an incredible and inspiring place to work,” says Kristen Sieffert, President of FAR. “Our unmatched customer experiences and compassion-driven approach to all that we do are the direct result of our quality colleagues at FAR—friends and peers who bring their best to the table every day without fail. Leading, mentoring, and cultivating this talent at FAR will always be the utmost priority for us. I have always believed that when our culture is strong, supportive, and human-centered, all other important aspects of the business follow suit.”

Over the past year, FAR continued to build out its companywide “10 Star” program—an initiative dedicated to furthering employee growth, strong relationships, and meaningful work at FAR and brainstorming new ideas that can impact the organization in a positive way. Most recently, feedback through the “10 Star” initiative led to the creation of FAR’s official mentorship program, which has already yielded impressive results for FAR’s community and for employee development within the company. FAR also celebrates employees’ contributions through its annual President’s Retreat, a premier event offering employees the chance to further strengthen an interoffice community, promote leadership skills, and ideate new solutions for FAR’s borrowers. These endeavors—together with a flexible, family-friendly approach to professional life—have resulted in a positive, collaborative business culture that puts people and relationships at the forefront of all that FAR does.

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
