Nearly 3,000 companies were nominated or asked to participate in the 2020 Top Workplaces contest by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and its partner, Energage. Employees across the metro area responded to print and online solicitations that began appearing in September. 

Using survey results, a list of 150 workplaces was compiled, consisting of 22 large companies (500 or more employees), 63 midsize companies (150-499 employees) and 65 small companies (149 or fewer employees). 

These four companies round out the top five midsize companies. Dorsey Alston, Realtors, was named Top Midsize Workplace for 2020.

2. Integrated Financial Group Inc.

Integrated Financial Group Inc., founded in 2003 and headquartered in Atlanta, ranks a metro Top Workplace for the sixth time.

With 21 offices and more than 170 employees in metro Atlanta, the Integrated Financial has the scale and resources to provide human resources support to independent advisors and advisor teams. It provides not only payroll, benefits, staffing and technology support, but also office management and business consulting.

The group’s seasoned staff serves as a “think tank” for its members. The Atlanta Business Chronicle has named it a Top 25 Financial Advisory Firm for 11 years. Its employees have group life, dental and health insurance, a matching 401k, vacation pay, and sick leave. The company’s goal is to be the premier destination for elite financial planners by 2025.

3. SalesLoft

SalesLoft, the private sales engagement company headquartered in Atlanta, is an AJC Top Workplace for a third straight year.

The company prides itself on the benefits it offers employees, including paid parental leave with maid and meal services for six weeks, and a year’s worth of free diapers after delivery. SalesLoft has more than 400 employees in metro Atlanta and worldwide.

Its long list of benefits for employees includes untracked paid time off, $5,250 in annual tuition reimbursement, financial wellness courses, and a shut-down and break from Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day. There also is a company Christmas party, family field day, sit/stand desks, and chess and pool tables. In addition, the company’s 98point6 app gives workers on-demand access to a primary care physician without long waits.

SalesLoft’s mission is to help companies give their customers better buying experiences so they can close more revenues faster.

4. Wesleyan School Inc.

Wesleyan School, an independent school founded in 1963, has been named an AJC Top Workplace for the sixth straight year.

Wesleyan School leaders believe faith and intellect are great partners. At Wesleyan, it is not a matter of choosing one or the other, but rather using both to create the best possible education for each child. The leadership and faculty work to provide students with an atmosphere that is challenging, reinforces the value of hard work, and emphasizes character and integrity above accomplishment.

Wesleyan prepares students for each stage of life and provides them the opportunity to see all the possibilities. Just outside I-285 in Peachtree Corners, the school has 1,179 students enrolled in grades K-12 for the 2019-2020 school year. It employees 230 faculty and staff members.

5. Silverton Mortgage

Residential mortgage lender Silverton Mortgage ranks as one of metro Atlanta’s Top Workplaces for a fourth year. Founded in 1998, Silverton is headquartered in Atlanta and employs more than 300 workers across more than 45 states in which it is licensed.

Silverton believes that success is a team effort. The motto “One Team. One Goal” is a constant reminder to employees to work together to reach a common purpose. Employee achievements are personified with bricks (they literally mail recipients a foam brick). While each brick is special, it is believed they are stronger together.

Silverton is generous to its employees with paid time off and medical benefits. It is generous to the community through its nonprofit, the Silverton Foundation, which makes rent and mortgage payments for families with sick children.

Silverton’s president, Josh Moffitt, makes it a priority to give updates on the company’s progress during monthly employee happy hours. Everyone has a chance to socialize and catch up on what’s important: having fun while giving clients the best mortgage experience possible.
