Security National Named Top Place to Work in Large Business Category for 2016

Security National announced today that they were named as a 2016 Top Workplace by the Salt Lake Tribune. The Salt Lake Tribune partnered with Pennsylvania-based WorkplaceDynamics, an employee-research and consulting firm, to determine the region’s Top Workplaces rankings.

The Top Workplaces award recognizes the best organizations as voted by their employees. Beginning in March, The Tribune ran articles and advertisements encouraging employees in the region to nominate companies as Top Workplaces. WorkplaceDynamics invited those companies, as well as other organizations in the region, to participate in the program.

Anyone could nominate a company. The only requirement was that the organization must employ at least 35 people in Utah. The organization could be public, private, nonprofit or governmental.

WorkplaceDynamics invited 899 workplaces to participate and surveyed 97 of them. Only those organizations that agreed to participate were included in the surveys. The surveyed firms employ 29,546 people in Utah. Of those employees who received questionnaires, 20,624 responded, either on paper or online.

“Our motto here at Security National is Excellence.” Says CEO of Security National Scott Quist. “I like to think it’s not excellence because someone is looking over my shoulder, or someone else’s shoulder. I like to think it’s excellence because that’s what I do, that’s me, that’s what I get up to do.”

Excellence defines the company’s culture and business model. With over five decades of experience, Security National has purposefully created and nourished a corporate culture that helps consumers and inspires employees to emphasize innovation, quality, and success. Security National’s culture has been embraced by a growing team of employees across the nation.

As part of this commitment, Security National has pioneered many innovative practices to ensure that this culture translates into long-term business value, including a selection of tools and resources, training, award winning marketing services, competitive compensation, full benefits, gym reimbursement, and vacation policy so employees enjoy a healthy work-life balance. Employees also participate in activities and charities that allow the company and employees to give back to their communities.

“Security National’s success is driven by the amazing people that make up our business, including our employees, customers, and partners,” said Steve Johnson, President at Security National. “Our culture has defined our company and our performance, and has created an environment where our employees have success. It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as a Top Workplace in Utah, and I am pleased to share the award with everyone who makes Security National an exceptional company.”

Security National receives award for Green Mortgages at the 2016 Green Business Award

Salt Lake City, UT (November 17, 2016 – SecurityNational Mortgage Company, a leading provider in home mortgages, was recently recognized for loan innovation at the 2016 Green Business Awards. The event honors the best green practices and efforts in the state, recognizing companies, communities and individuals who are making strides in environmental sustainability.

As an award recipient, Security National was recognized as a top mortgage lender for providing loan options for High-Performance or Net-Zero homes. The company was profiled in the recent issue of Utah Business magazine and honored at a luncheon at the Grand America Hotel.

Green homes are becoming the building standard of the future. These high-performance homes self-generate all or most of the power they consume with upgrades such as; solar panels, rainwater harvesting, high-performance building materials, electric vehicle infrastructure, gray water recovery, geo-thermal heating/cooling, wind power systems, and more.

“The challenge with high-performance homes has been properly recognizing green upgrades and being able to include upgrade costs into the value of a home.” said David Bollard, National Director of Marketing at SecurityNational Mortgage Company.

Loan officers from Security National help to ease or eliminate some of those challenges through green premium mortgages. The company has systems that help consumers get recognition for these type of upgrades.

“Home owners want eco-friendly solutions and energy efficiency is the way of the future. We believe SecurityNational Mortgage has their finger on the pulse and we want to be that top-tier mortgage lender,” said Bollard.

SecurityNational Mortgage Company to be honored for Innovation at the 2016 Utah Green Business Awards

Salt Lake City, UT – SecurityNational Mortgage Company, a leading provider in home mortgages, announces they will be recognized for innovation at the 2016 Utah Green Business Awards.

The Utah Green Business Awards program honors the best green practices and efforts in Utah, recognizing companies, communities and individuals who are making strides in environmental sustainability. Each finalist and award recipient will be profiled in the October issue of Utah Business magazine and honored at a luncheon in October at the Grand America Hotel.

“For homeowners wanting to build or renovate their homes to utilize some of the market’s green features, it can be tough to get their money’s worth. Security National has sought to ease or eliminate some of those frustrations through its specially designed green premium mortgages, which help those eco-friendly upgrades be recognized in the value of the home,” said David Bollard, Marketing and Creative Director for SecurityNational Mortgage.

Part of those efforts are in helping appraisers understand the value features like solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and other measures bring to a home verses neighboring properties without those amenities. ““Energy efficiency is the way of the future, and we feel like at SecurityNational Mortgage we have our finger on the pulse and we want to be that top-tier mortgage lender,” said Bollard.

SecurityNational also seeks to be green itself—its currently building a new corporate campus in Murray, Utah that will have a number of eco-friendly features. “That philosophy of being a green lender, we’ve adopted that into the way we operate corporately.”

SNMC Marketing Team wins Top Marketing Award

Congratulations to the SecurityNational Mortgage MARKETING TEAM for being chosen as a SAMY (Sales and Marketing Teams of the Year) award recipient.  Each year ambitious individuals and teams are chosen and given this prestegious honor.

Sam Urie, SAMY Award founder and a former sales/marketing road warrior, applauded the honorees for their often-unsung efforts for their companies, especially amid the digital revolution that has turned the old face-to-face model on its head.

“Despite all of our digital tools, the most successful marketers know that it is still all about relationships. It’s not simply closing a deal and moving on to the next one,” Urie said. “It’s listening to clients, responding to their needs, following up after the transaction and taking the feedback to heart. On the marketing side, it’s understanding who your potential clients are so well that you can identify who they are, and craft messages that will speak directly to their needs and desires.”

The event was emceed by Ninevah Dinha, editor and founder of the e-publication YOU Magazine. Dinha said in her days as a broadcast journalism, she viewed the sales department of the news outlets she worked for with distrust. After founding her magazine, though, she got a crash course in the tricky world of sales and marketing—and gained a new respect for the professions.

“When I worked in news, there was quite a dichotomy between the news side and the sales side,” she said. “When I launched my own business, it’s obviously an entrepreneurial thing. I had to learn the entrepreneurial side of things. I really have a tremendous amount of respect for what you do as sales people.”

“We are honored to have been chosen as a SAMY award winner,” said David Bollard, Marketing Creative Director at SecurityNational Mortgage Company. “Our marketing team focuses on providing the tools, resources and strategy that Security National mortgage loan officers need to be successful. We love what we do and it shows!”
