Hometap Wins Third Consecutive Top Places to Work Honor From The Boston Globe
November 30, 2023
BOSTON – November 30, 2023 – Hometap, the Boston-based financial technology company pioneering novel home equity financing for American homeowners, is pleased to announce it has been selected by The Boston Globe as one of its Top Places to Work in Massachusetts for the third year in a row.
Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on directly by company teams, gauging corporate direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The newspaper’s annual employee-based survey program, now in its 16th edition, publishes the listing in its year-end issue of the Globe Magazine.
Rankings for Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 137,000 individuals at 347 Massachusetts organizations.
This year, winners were noted for constantly working to improve their workplaces, from investigating how artificial intelligence can assist workers, not replace them, to helping workers get to know each other in an increasingly hybrid world. 175 were selected in 2023.
"Receiving this recognition for the third straight year is just as humbling as the first, and perhaps even more so, given 2023's headwinds and the tireless, positive energy we’ve seen throughout this year from our team,” said Hometap Cofounder and CEO Jeffrey Glass. “This program from the Globe is especially important to us, in that it demonstrates Hometap’s commitment to the incredible community in Massachusetts that we love and call home. More broadly, it gives measure to how we live up to our values, sustain exceptional talent, and build a supportive culture, and no one is in a better place to understand and reflect on those crucial aspects than our employees.
"For that reason, as a young and growing company, Hometap’s three-time inclusion on this list is truly special.”
“The best employers are always striving to put their people first, whether they’re honoring small individual accomplishments or adjusting company-wide policies to become more inclusive,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor, reflecting on this year’s edition.
In addition to Top Places to Work, 2023 has seen Hometap cited as the fastest-growing private company in the Boston area (and ranked 66th nationally) on the Inc. 5000, as well as the second-fastest growing technology company in the region — behind Moderna — on the Deloitte Fast 500, where it placed 14th overall.
Founded in 2017, Hometap is a Boston-based fintech company on a mission to make homeownership less stressful and more accessible. Starting with its industry-leading home equity investment product, the company has helped more than 8,000 homeowners across the U.S. access their home equity without having to take out a loan, sell their home or take on new monthly payments. Hometap continues to expand its suite of innovative financial products and services, developing a digital platform designed to help homeowners at every stage of their homeownership journey make more informed financial decisions about their home — and take action on those decisions — with confidence, speed, and ease.
