Walker & Dunlop Named as a 2022 Top Washington-Area Workplace for the Ninth Year in a Row

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2022 Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area every year since the award’s founding. Selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC.

“The Post’s Top Workplaces list is now in its ninth year and continues to highlight the companies in the Washington-area that employees deem to be leaders in company satisfaction and engagement,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Dion Haynes. “Each year, the leaders at these companies are commended for their leadership and collegiality, qualities which have increased in importance to employees with the last few years of heightened transition and change.”

“It is an honor to be named as a Top Workplace by The Washington Post once again. This award is in recognition of the collaborative and caring environment our employees cultivate each day,” said Walker & Dunlop Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Paula Pryor. “The past year has continued to present challenges to our employees and in the ways we work together, and it means a great deal that our positive and collaborative culture continues to shine through during these unprecedented times. Our commitment to our culture is unwavering, and we remain focused on supporting our employees and their experiences at Walker & Dunlop every day.”

Walker & Dunlop’s commitment to culture extends beyond the computer screen, as a recent investment in the company's new headquarters has resulted in a new back-to-work environment for nearly 270 employees in the Wilson Building, a premier high-rise building in Bethesda, MD. The space is a reflection of the company’s brand, culture and community, tailored specifically to give employees the space in which they can collaborate and connect with each other.

At Walker & Dunlop, employees find their hard work recognized, their ambition matched by opportunity, and a place to build their future. Walker & Dunlop currently has over 35 job openings in the DMV area as well as more than 75 openings nationwide. Check out available opportunities
