The San Diego Union-Tribune Honors MCT® with 2018 Top Workplace Award

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Dec. 14, 2018 – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, announced that it has been named a 2018 Top Workplace by The San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper. For 2018, 70 San Diego-area employers scored well enough to earn recognition on the Top Workplaces list, with MCT ranking number 38 in the small company category within the financial services sector.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools that The San Diego Union-Tribune partnered with to conduct the survey. The completely anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

“At MCT, we foster a culture that inspires ingenuity, collaboration, innovation and transparency, among other things, and the driving force sculpting this culture is our employees,” stated Curtis Richins, president at MCT. “We were named a Top Workplace by The San Diego Union-Tribune because our employees are passionate about what they do, love working within MCT’s dynamic, and enjoy helping clients succeed.”
