PrimeLending Named One of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work® and Fortune

DALLAS (October 8, 2015) – National residential mortgage lender, PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company and subsidiary of Hilltop Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HTH), was named one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. The rankings take into account how well women are represented within PrimeLending’s workforce, management and executive teams, as well as their own assessments of the quality and fairness at PrimeLending.

“The employees at PrimeLending have created a culture and workplace that includes, involves and values everyone,” said Todd Salmans, Chairman and CEO of PrimeLending. “It is gratifying for us all to know that direct feedback from our employees tells us we are on the right track. Our award-winning workplace is a reflection of the outstanding employees who work here, and this recognition is something we can all share and celebrate together. Our thanks to Great Place to Work and Fortune.”

The 100 Best Workplaces for Women ranking is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from published Great Place to Work® Reviews.

“The companies on this list are leaders who recognize the strategic importance of creating workplaces that attract and support the best talent in their industries,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “While specialized programs to support women’s equal access to opportunity are often strategic, in many ways it is just as important – and challenging for leaders – to establish a pattern of inclusiveness throughout everyday workplace interactions since these rely on everyone to overcome their blind spots. Ranking on this list a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating throughout their teams.”

This national recognition complements PrimeLending’s No. 4 ranking in the nation among top 10 large companies on the Great Rated!™ People’s Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Finances Services list and regional top 10 ranking in The Dallas Morning News’ Top 100 Places to Work competition for three years in a row – 2012, 2013 and 2014.

About the Survey
Winning companies were selected based on evaluations by over 135,600 female employees on Great Place to Work’s Trust Index© employee survey. Women considered everything from the fairness of their company’s promotions, to who has access to information and leadership, the level of support for employees’ personal lives, and the degree of inclusiveness and connection they feel with colleagues. Scores also take into account how well-represented women are within the workforce, management and executive positions; how positively women experience their workplace’s fairness; and how favorable women’s experiences are compared to the 138,000 men also surveyed.

Across the 637 companies studied, Great Place to Work found that men’s and women’s experiences were most likely to differ on measures assessing the fairness of their workplaces – as well as several measures rating their access to communication and involvement in workplace decision-making. By contrast, researchers’ analysis of women’s and men’s results show that the 100 winning workplaces create a more consistent and inclusive environment for both genders across a range of day-to-day trust-building behaviors, including employees’ access to special recognition, fair treatment regardless of role, and management’s approachability.
