This Detroit-based fintech—which is celebrating 20 years on the Best Companies list—is dedicated to helping both its employees and the greater community grow and thrive thanks in part to its “for more than profit” philosophy.
- New hires are welcomed with The Roadmap, a three-day interactive orientation event introducing them on their first day to Rocket’s culture and philosophy.
- After new team members are introduced to the company’s culture, focus is shifted to The Journey, a learning-and-development service—including instructor-led training and mentoring programs—that is dedicated to employees’ professional growth within the company.
- Ninety-seven percent of employees say they feel positively about the way they “contribute to the community,” owing to Rocket’s philanthropic programs like the Detroit Tax Relief Fund, the Detroit Eviction Defense Fund, and a $500 million commitment to improving Detroit neighborhoods.
- Last year, Rocket Companies introduced the Million Dollar Referral: Each time team members refer someone to get a mortgage and the client closes on that mortgage, they are entered for the chance to win a million dollars.
