Twp Orlando 2022 Aw@2x 100

Altamonte Springs, Florida, September 20, 2022 - Stellar MLS has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Orlando Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.


“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”


The multiple listing service (MLS) is essential for brokers, agents, appraisers, and consumers buying and selling real estate. More than 500 MLSs are serving real estate markets across the United States. As the nation’s third-largest MLS, Stellar MLS is established in the real estate industry and has been based in Central Florida since the company’s inception in 1993.


Within the past two years, Stellar MLS has experienced accelerated growth in the Florida market and added more team members than ever to serve its growing customer base. With growth comes opportunity. The operations leadership at the company has heavily invested time and resources into becoming an employer of choice to retain and attract the best talent to serve their customers. The strategy has proven effective with their first-ever employer award recognition through Energage.


Stellar’s employee benefits include ample paid time off, affordable health insurance, competitive pay, and other work-life balance perks. The company also champions diversity in their team culture, hosting numerous guest speakers and events for all team members and, most recently, an EQ workshop for their management team to facilitate collaboration and unity among their teams. Nearly 20% of Stellar’s team has been with the company for over a decade.


“There is no higher affirmation of the company and culture we are building at Stellar than to be honored with this award based directly on our employees’ feedback. We are thrilled to stand alongside some of Central Florida’s most notable employers. We will continue to lift our team, so our people can make the difference between excellence and the everyday for our customers, themselves, and their communities,” shared Stellar MLS CEO Merri Jo Cowen.
