Davie, FL—BHG Financial (BHG), the leader in unsecured business and personal loans and creator of one of the largest community bank loan and product networks in the country, today announced further steps in its commitment to ensuring employees are compensated fairly by sharing the firm’s Fair Pay Workplace (FPW) certification.
With a mission to end unlawful pay disparities based on gender, race, and ethnicity, FPW is leading the way to sustained fair pay in the workplace. Established in 2020, FPW is the only non-profit certification program to independently verify organizations’ pay equity status using standardization, transparent methods developed by expert from across industries and functions, including data science, law, business, and DEI.
“It’s a true accomplishment to be certified by Fair Pay Workplace,” says BHG Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Al Crawford. “BHG has achieved many accolades in the last 20 years, and we are proud to add fair pay certification to that list. Our employees are our number one asset, and this certification exemplifies the equitable and inclusive environment we continuously strive for at BHG.”
Beyond achieving FPW certification, BHG ranks among the Nation’s Best Workplaces for Women, a listing produced by Fortune Magazine and Great Places to Work®. Meanwhile, minority women make up more than 35 percent of BHG leadership and of the 141 employees promoted during the first quarter of 2022, nearly half were women.
“We take diversity, inclusion, and equity seriously at BHG,” says Katie Barnes, BHG Chief Human Resources Officer. “Partnering with Fair Pay Workplace ensured a comprehensive, industry-recognized analysis across multiple factors, including protected classes and our various job, families, and locations. We’re excited that our commitment to ensuring our employees are compensated fairly is now something we can share with our employees, partners, and prospective employees!”
