KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Morgan Properties, a real estate investment and management company, announced today it has been named a top workplace for 2017 by Philly.com for the fourth year in a row. Top Workplaces 2017 is an effort to discover the best employers in the Philadelphia region based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics LLC. More than 39,000 people were surveyed on several aspects of workplace culture, and Morgan Properties was one of 125 Philadelphia-area employers that scored high enough to earn this honor.
“As a family business built on excellence, integrity, and community, we know that our success is a direct result of our people, and we strive to attract and maintain talented and creative individuals looking for a dynamic and fast-paced work environment,” said Jonathan Morgan, president of Morgan Properties JV Management, an affiliate of Morgan Properties. “We stand behind our ‘Morgan Experience’ which reflects top-level service, value, and amenities that provide residents a sense of community and allow them to grow with Morgan Properties, and the same holds true for our employees. We take pride in offering a variety of opportunities for personal and professional growth and are honored that Philly.com recognized us yet again for those efforts.”
Morgan Properties was listed as a top mid-sized company with over 30 locations and more than 300 employees in the Delaware Valley. Company-wide, Morgan Properties employs 900+ people. Morgan Properties nurtures an environment of team building where each person is vital in supporting their coworkers' efforts to deliver residents an outstanding living experience. Employees at Morgan Properties say that they love their jobs because they have a sense of purpose in helping people to find their home, they value their interactions with the residents, there are an abundance of growth and learning opportunities, and ideas and hard work are appreciated by upper management.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day – the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
Morgan Properties has continued to rapidly expand its geographic footprint, solidifying itself as one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing multifamily owners and operators. In the last year alone, Morgan Properties JV has helped secure over $800 million of multifamily investments, 21 apartment communities, and 6,300 units. The company intends to continue growth as a major national player through acquiring class B, multifamily assets in infill, high-barrier markets where the company's operational expertise can quickly add value for its investors and residents. Since the launch of Morgan Properties JV in 2011, Morgan Properties has hired 350+ employees to support the new acquisitions. The company offers competitive salary, a comprehensive benefits program, and training opportunities for employees including an internship program, property manager trainee program, and professional development programs.
