Keller Williams Named One of 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security

Keller Williams Realty’s outstanding commitment to their employees’ financial and physical wellness has earned them the distinction of being one of the best. An independent judging panel of employee benefit experts named Keller Williams as one of the 2014 winners of The Principal® 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security.

INC1014_coverJudges selected Keller Williams because of the company’s commitment to employee financial security through outstanding employee benefits. Keller Williams, which employs 220 people at its international headquarters in Austin, is also featured in the October 2014 issue of Inc.magazine for this achievement.

“Keller Williams and other Principal 10 Best winners are committed to their employees’ long-term financial well-being,” said Luke Vandermillen, vice president at the Principal Financial Group®. “They understand that the people and culture can really make a difference in an organization. When companies like these invest so much in benefits that support their employees, people notice.”

The Principal® sponsors the national program. It honors growing companies for their commitment to their employees’ financial security.

“We are honored to have been named to the Principal 10 Best list,” said Keller Williams CEO Mark Willis. “As a profit-sharing company, we are committed to investing in our people and helping them self-optimize their financial well-being.”

As part of their best practices, Keller Williams works with an Employee Leadership Council comprised of KW associates to help make choices that support employees’ financial future. Another key best practice is recognizing that benefit programs play a critical role in employee engagement, retention, and productivity.

“Employee engagement generates powerful returns for our company, keeping projects on track so we can deliver industry-leading innovation that gives our agents a competitive edge,” Keller Williams President Mary Tennant said.

Along with the award recognition, The Principal awards a donation to a charity selected by each winning company. Keller Williams chose KW Cares – a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports Keller Williams associates and their family members who are enduring unexpected hardships – to receive the $2,500 donation.
