Wallick & Volk Mortgage Recognized By Phoenix Business Journal As One Of The "Best Places To Work" In Phoenix

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallick & Volk Mortgage announced that it has been named by the Phoenix Business Journal as one of the "Best Places to Work" in Phoenix.  The Phoenix Business Journal, in cooperation with Quantum Workplace, surveyed Valley employees about benefits and perks, corporate culture and more, to determine the "Best Places to Work."   The results were announced yesterday at a luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore. 

Wallick & Volk qualified in the small business category (based on the number of employees in the Phoenix Metro area).  After tabulating the results, Wallick & Volk was named 9th in the Valley for "Best Places to Work."  Michael Groff, CEO and President of Wallick & Volk, attended the luncheon, along with David Heuermann, Sr. Vice President and Joe Biondo, Area Manager.  Groff commented, "It's really gratifying to know that our employees enjoy the programs we offer to make this company a great place to work."

Employees gave Wallick & Volk high marks in areas such as health insurance and a 401K program. However, the most popular program appears to be a wellness contest that was offered.  Employees were invited to participate in friendly competition to lose weight, increase physical fitness or quit smoking.  Significant prizes were offered which enticed numerous employees to increase their overall health.  Heuermann pointed out, "Helping our team members to improve their health is a win/win – healthier employees are generally happier employees.  Our next wellness contest will begin on January 1, 2013, and we hope to motivate even more of our personnel to reach their health and fitness goals."

Wallick & Volk reports that this "Best Places to Work" award is a fitting end to an outstanding year.  Earlier this year the company announced a year-long anniversary celebration commemorating "80 Years of Excellence" in mortgage lending.   This summer Wallick & Volk was named one of the "Top 100 Mortgage Lenders" in the Nation.  Additionally, numerous Wallick & Volk branches and loan officers have received coveted awards and accolades, such as "Best of Flagstaff" as voted by readers of the Daily Sun.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
