The San Diego Business Journal recently recognized Samuel Scott Financial Group as one of the Best Places to Work. This news comes just months after the boutique mortgage company was once again selected as the Best Mortgage Company in San Diego by reader’s of local publications.
“It has been wonderful to watch Samuel Scott Financial Group grow and take on such a strong role in the community,” said President and Founder, Todd Pianin. “I am proud to own a company that is home to so many outstanding professionals and truly flattered that we have been named one of The Best Places to Work in 2012.”
Through their county-wide survey and awards program, The San Diego Business Journal identifies and honors the best places of employment in San Diego, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. Best Places to Work winners have best practices that include: rewarding hard-working employees, investing in employee training, offering wellness programs, and providing opportunities for team-building and social activities. They salute companies that have worked hard to create environments where their employees enjoy going to work.
“The average person spends more time at work than they do at home, and financial professionals are notorious for putting in long hours,” said Pianin. “The company culture is going to have an impact on your life. Knowing that everyone’s success is tied to their happiness, we make creating a positive workplace a top priority.”
From the glass front entrance to the two large conference rooms at the Samuel Scott’s Carmel Valley office, everything is well kept and well equipped. Employees enjoy an oversize kitchen (complete with popcorn machine), business center and easy parking. Social events like Bowling Nights, Glow Ball Golfing, BBQ Lunches and Holiday Parties fill the schedule. Both the Vice President of Sales and Vice President of Operations incentivize their teams with contests and rewards.
“Last month we gave away four Gold Eagles and a trip to the Montage in Beverly Hills to the leaders in our sales and processing teams. Winning bowling teams went home with new iPads. It’s fun and it keeps people motivated,” said Russ Schreier, Vice President of Sales. “We’re a growing company. So it’s important to make an extra effort to give people the attention and the recognition the deserve.”
