Stocks in this article: WD

Bethesda, Md., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) (the "Company") announced that it was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces in the United States on their annual 2013 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in FORTUNE magazine. This is the second year in a row that Walker & Dunlop has been honored with this distinction.

Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Walker & Dunlop participated in a rigorous selection process. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. In compiling the list, Great Place to Work® found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.

"What better award could we receive than being one of the best places to work in a business that depends on the quality and commitment of our people?" commented Willy Walker, Walker & Dunlop Chairman & CEO. "We strive to create an environment that is conducive to growth and development of our business and our employees – that is the DNA of our corporate culture. Walker & Dunlop's corporate culture is what has differentiated our firm throughout its 75-year history, and although the company's size and scale have changed dramatically over the past five years, our emphasis on people, process, productivity and culture has not. Our people continue to be Walker & Dunlop's most valuable resource and their contributions on a daily basis make this company a truly great place to work."

Walker & Dunlop shows its commitment to employees by working hard to maintain and enhance the corporate culture that sets the Company apart in the commercial real estate finance industry. The Company provides wellness incentives; encourages community involvement by offering paid time off annually to volunteer; rewards service and tenure with awards up to $25,000; and makes daily investments of time and resources to insure employees know that their efforts are important and appreciated.

"The companies appearing on our Best Small & Medium Workplaces list help us achieve our mission by presenting others with an example to emulate. These companies demonstrate that being an excellent employer leads to business success," said Robert Levering, CEO and Co-founder of Great Place to Work®. "While these companies may be relatively small in headcount, many of them provide services to some of the country's largest and most notable organizations, suggesting that success has not so much to do with size as with the quality of service and experience a company provides. A great workplace, full of great employees, is better equipped to achieve that success."

Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
