This is what makes my career journey special and meaningful

The main driver in my life is someone saying "I am glad I met those people at Southeast, my family and I are better off because of it". 

Money and title will not give you a hug nor help you change a flat tire. 

Friends and a team will.  This is what makes the career journey special and meaningful.  This email was in my inbox and reinforces we are providing the meaningful life and career added value our TEAM wants.  We will continue to adapt our Wellness, Family, and Career balance.   I am not sure who posted it but it's probably one of our new DE / VA Underwriters.

Mortgage Professional America Article - Are mortgage companies lagging in promoting wellness culture?

Are mortgage companies lagging in promoting wellness culture? by Ryan Smith

“We had really outgrown our former facility,” said Cal Haupt, CEO of Southeast Mortgage. “…That gave us the launchpad to create a new space that was truly progressive, with an eye toward employee wellness.”

The new, 31,000-square-foot space was created with an eye toward the company’s culture – and the intent to integrate “amenities that enable employees to pursue more balanced lives,” according to a news release.

The new headquarters also makes Southeast Mortgage the only mortgage company in the region to incorporate a “life balance center” for employees into its work space. The life balance center includes amenities such as:
  • A fully equipped gym
  • A recreational break room featuring a ping-pong table, arcade games, dart boards and more
  • A commercial video-recording and photo studio
  • A state-of-the-art conference room and other “diverse collaborative areas to accommodate different modes of work”
  • An eight-foot-tall waterfall “to foster the atmosphere of a stress-free environment”
  • A 400-gallong fish tank
  • A health and wellness exercise incentive program
“Our goal was to create a health-conscious workplace that was highly functional, yet offered our employees the necessary amenities they needed for a healthy work-life balance,” Haupt said. “The new space is more than an attractive office; it embodies who we are as a firm.”
