Pennymac Earns Coveted Spot on Newsweek’s 2023 List of Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces®

Pennymac ranked as #38 Among 100 U.S. Companies for Outstanding Employee Sentiment and Satisfaction

Pennymac is proud to announce its recognition in Newsweek’s annual Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® list, a result of a collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company.

Pennymac was ranked #38 out of the 100 companies that received this award. The rankings were established after surveying more than 2 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 100,000 employees. The honored organizations, including Pennymac, were recognized for creating a workplace where employees feel respected and inspired.

“We are honored to receive this award from Newsweek and BPI, as it demonstrates our team’s dedication to building an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive,” said David Spector, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Pennymac. “This recognition is especially meaningful because it is based on the direct feedback from our team members, who highlighted a commitment to our core values, a strong track record of supporting career growth and providing internal advancement opportunities. As we celebrate Pennymac’s commitment to greatness, we will continue to invest in our people and dedicate our resources to the communities where we live and serve.”

The results are based on how well companies demonstrate areas within the Spark Model as defined by BPI including Systemic Collaboration, Positive Vision of the Future, Alignment of Values, Respect and Killer Achievement. Employee sentiments and emotions indicating how engaged employees are, how positive they feel about their workplace, and how committed they are to the organization’s success were analyzed to identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces®.

"Fully understanding and acting upon employee sentiment, emotion, and recommendations continues to be a challenge and top priority of executive leadership,” said Louis Carter, CEO of Best Practice Institute. “The companies on this list have committed to listening carefully to their employees to create a workplace employees love.”

“With the rapidly changing workplace and competition for top talent, more companies are recognizing the importance of employee engagement and commitment,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek. “The workplaces that have demonstrated a commitment to their employees in 2023 are more likely to attract the best talent and deliver strong business outcomes.”

Pennymac is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture to engage a highly talented and performance-focused workforce. As of 2022, 75% of employees are female or underrepresented minorities, including 54% at the management level, and Pennymac employs 50% women company-wide. It was also touted by Newsweek and BPI for prioritizing employee advancement.
