June 26, 2017, Bellevue, WA — Every year, Seattle Business magazine publishes its list of Top 100 Companies to Work For. This year, recognized in the #2 spot among companies with more than 150 employees: Absolute Mortgage. “We are very humbled and grateful,” says Absolute Mortgage’s President Eric Bolstad.

To generate the annual list of Top 100 Companies, businesses are rated based on confidential employee surveys, which are weighted against the level of employee participation. This year, research firm Fieldwork Webwork conducted surveys and compiled results across 10 categories, including benefits, communication, corporate culture, hiring/retention, executive leadership, performance standards, responsibility/decision making, rewards/recognition, training/education and workplace environment.

Absolute Mortgage came in second in the “Large Company” category because it scored such high marks, in particular, for its quality of communication, decision-making, corporate culture, quality of relationships between co-workers and with upper management, and performance of their office.

In a statement to his staff, Bolstad remarked, “Most companies that experience growth like we have typically see their culture and their soul deteriorate. Not with us. I feel this primarily has to do with all the new people we have been able to bring into our family, which has only strengthened our corporate beliefs and reinforced our commitment to treating one another well. Although being number two is a great accomplishment, we will roll up our sleeves and keep doing what we do, being who we are, and getting better at both so that we can become number one and leave no doubt.”
