Envoy Mortgage Awarded 2019 Best Places to Work in Houston


Houston, TX – September 19, 2019 – Envoy Mortgage was recently recognized as one of Houston’s 2019 “Best Places to Work” by the Houston Business Journal in the large business category.

The award recognizes 105 local, Houston companies from various industries that promote unmatched work-life balance, competitive paid time off and other tangible and intangible perks. To win the award, each Envoy associate in the Houston area was sent an anonymous survey, where they answered questions and ranked the company on various company policies.

“Culture is a key component in business and has an impact on our strategic direction. Envoy is ever evolving, and we are in touch with our workforce to ensure their satisfaction and make sure that culture is at the top of our strategic goals. Each day we empower our colleagues to obtain their professional and personal success. We are thankful to have some of the best and brightest colleagues around,” said Kris Benson, Envoy vice president, human resources.

As the only mortgage lender in the large business category, Envoy continues its uphill trend for edging out the recruiting competition in the local Houston area.

To ensure employee success, Envoy maintains a symbiotic culture that thrives on a basic formula of providing its employees with the essential tools needed to thrive in each of their positions. By ensuring new pathways to collaboration, modern workplace restructuring, such as, the ability to work remotely and cutting-edge technology to achieve cohesive function across the company, Envoy consistently builds a relationship with its employees that fosters career expansion, creativity and trust.

“Many of us spend as much or more time at the office as we do at home, so it is critical that we establish an environment where our employees enjoy coming to work and feel like a close-knit community. Each individual department has its own personalities and challenges, but each group encourages and supports its members, just like a family. We laugh together at company-wide events, decorate cubicles for birthdays and baby showers, and we are there for each other during tough times. I’m proud of the atmosphere we have developed at Envoy and am happy that I’ve been able to be a part of this family for 16 years,” said Brad Mauritzen, Envoy’s chief financial officer.
