The Oklahoman Names Gateway a Winner of the Oklahoma Top Workplaces 2020 Award

TULSA, Okla., December 9, 2020 – Gateway Mortgage, a division of Gateway First Bank, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Oklahoman newspaper. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures traits of any organization including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”

“We are incredibly pleased to be on the Top Workplaces list eight years in a row,” said Scott Gesell, CEO at Gateway. “Gateway has a remarkable culture because we have terrific people who care about our customers and their fellow team members. Values at Gateway center on teamwork, doing the right thing and making a difference. We have undergone a major transformation from being a mortgage company to being a community bank with a strong mortgage business. This brings us tremendous growth potential and a greater responsibility to help our customers in all financial areas of their life. We have taken our passion for strengthening families through homeownership to the next level – strengthening families and the communities we serve.”
