One of the companies, Rocket Companies in Detroit, was ranked No. 5 on the list released on Monday behind only Cisco, Salesforce, Hilton and Wegmans Food Markets Inc.
This marks the 18th consecutive year the holding company consisting of tech-driven real estate, mortgage and eCommerce businesses has ranked in the top 30 on the prestigious list.
“When COVID-19 began spreading across the country in the U.S., we rapidly launched measures to promote the health and safety of our team members, clients and communities. Because we took care of our people and made sure they had everything they needed to support our clients, we experienced record growth in 2020 – even as the vast majority of us worked from home.” said Jay Farner, Rocket Companies’ CEO and Vice Chairman.
Rocket Companies implemented three policies to benefit its employees in 2020 including a paid day off that did not count against team members’ vacation bank, added calendar flexibility and several scheduled breaks throughout the day.
The company also engaged in conversations with team members and community leaders to develop a six-point strategic plan for advancing action on the topics of race, law enforcement engagement, inclusion and more.
Rocket Companies has also been active in supporting its hometown of Detroit by working to prevent eviction and homelessness, supporting the distribution of essential resources and developing the software and infrastructure for the City of Detroit’s COVID-19 testing – and later – vaccine programs.
Rocket Companies transitioned 98 percent of team members to work remotely in early March 2020 and purchased nearly $15 million in equipment over the course of the pandemic to ensure all teams could collaborate in a virtual setting, according to a news release.
According to the survey that determined Fortune’s ranking, 97 percent of team members said they feel good about the ways the organization contributes to the community.
