Why It's a Great Employer

This real estate investment firm rolls out the proverbial red carpet for new hires by arranging welcome lunches with different teams throughout the week, and assigning a "Parkway Peer" to help acclimatize new employees. Epitomizing the company's culture of openness, the CEO removed the doors on his office and is interviewed monthly by a different employee, with the results shared over video on the company's employee-only online network. After combining with Eola Capital earlier this year, executive officers went on a week-long tour to meet personally with 130 new team members and offer stock options to all of the new employees.
