For the second year in a row, the National Association of REALTORS® has been named one of the top employment destinations in the country by the Great Place to Work Institute. NAR is among the organizations to be recognized as a Great Place to Work by achieving high ratings for worker productivity, customer service, and agility. NAR was also recognized for its commitment to fostering a culture that advances diversity and inclusion, leading change, and emphasizing communication and collaboration across its workforce.

“Happy employees mean happy customers,” says NAR CEO Bob Goldberg. “At NAR, our customers are our members—America’s 1.5 million REALTORS® who serve consumers every day in every U.S. ZIP code. There is no better way for us to carry out our core values as an association than by ensuring our staff feels engaged, invested, and safe at work each day.”

Eighty-four percent of NAR employees surveyed called the association a great place to work. In an anonymous survey, employees gave high marks to NAR’s management and to the association for making them feel welcome.

About one-fifth of NAR’s workforce has been with the organization for two decades or more.

“We are tremendously proud to be named a Great Place to Work for the second consecutive year, which not only validates the care and attention we offer to each of our employees, but also exemplifies the immense value we continuously provide to our members,” Goldberg says.

The Great Place to Work Institute is known as a global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and leadership.
