RouteOne Awarded Top Workplaces 2021 Honor by The Detroit Free Press

November 15, 2021

November 2021, Farmington Hills MI - RouteOne, a Detroit-based fintech, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by The Detroit Free Press. It's the fifth year RouteOne has received this distinction. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology service provider Energage, LLC. The anonymous employee survey uniquely measures drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization.

Additionally, in June 2021, RouteOne's Senior Manager, Human Resources, Nichole Roumayah Shaya, was honored by Crain's Detroit Business in its 2021 Excellence in HR awards. This year's Excellence in HR Awards winners reflected all of the resilience, resourcefulness, and big thinking this past year required, in business and life. The honorees moved quickly to roll out remote and flexible work plans — and found perks and productivity gains along the way. Ms. Roumayah Shaya was the winner in Employee Engagement for improving communication and collaboration across the company.

Finally, in August 2021, RouteOne's Chief Product Officer, Amanda George, was recognized as an honoree among an elite group of women named in Auto Fin Journal's 2021 Women in Auto Finance.  This recognition is for women who thrive in their specialties. Honorees will speak at a panel discussion in November on the challenges the pandemic created and their stories of perseverance and successes with their wide-ranging responsibilities at finance companies and other service providers.
