If there’s one thing I do my best to impress upon our clients, it’s how much we support our nation’s veterans. When we’re not volunteering at the VA Hospital, working in the community to help veterans, or partnering with VSOs, we’re helping veterans who are transitioning to the civilian workforce.
Quicken Loans racked in an insane amount of volunteer hours in 2013 to hundreds of non-profit groups. See how many were helped out in this year’s summary.
Happy Holidays from all of us here on the Quicken Loans Zing Blog team!
Recently, some of us were talking about things we’re grafeful for this holiday season and Ryan, our director of video, came up with an interesting idea: Set up a camera and chair in beautiful Campus Martius Park in downtown Detroit (across the street from our national headquarters) and ask Quicken Loans team members walking by to tell us what they’re grateful for. America, what are you grateful for? We’d love to know.
On November 15th, The Charlotte Business Journal recognized the top 77 workplaces for 2013; Quicken Loans and Quicken Loans Mortgage Services (QLMS) were named the #2 workplace in the state for the midsized division!
Earlier this month, the Detroit Free Press named Quicken Loans and Quizzle the #1 Best Place to Work in Michigan for the fourth consecutive year!
Quicken Loans is proud to announce that it we have been named a top military friendly employer for 2014 by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs Magazine. Companies on this elite list were selected based on a survey of more than 5,000 entries.
What is Veterans Day? I took an informal poll to see if anyone knew why today is what it is, and what it’s purpose is. Most people had a vague idea, but I was surprised at how many young people (in their early to mid 20s) had no clue as to the meaning of Veterans Day. “A day to thank or honor veterans and the men and women of the military for their service” is the most common response, and while it’s technically true, it really goes much deeper than that.
At Quicken Loans, it’s simple: If you have an idea and want it to succeed, it’ll show up in everything you do and you’ll make a difference. That happens every day among the 10,000 team members at Quicken Loans. It all started here as an idea that was supported by a belief system. Without that, none of it would work. With it, we thrive. Making a difference for our clients, our teams, ourselves. That’s what it’s all about, and that’s what we do here at Quicken Loans.
Quicken Loans loves the City of Detroit and hates homelessness. That’s why the nation’s largest online mortgage lender has partnered with the Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO) to help struggling Detroiters.
