Drees Homes Earns Great Place to Work Certification

FORT MITCHELL, KY – Drees Homes is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work®. The prestigious Award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working Drees Homes. Ninety-two percent of employees said it’s a great place to work – 33 points higher than the average U.S. 



Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation. 


“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this distinction means that Drees Homes is one of the best companies to work for in the country.” 


Vice President of Human Resources Pamela Rader shared, “As we celebrate our 95th year in business, I am reminded of all the many reasons I love to work for The Drees Company. Our mission is clear, our purpose is meaningful, and our core values are sound. But at the heart of it, what makes this a great place to work is our culture and people. I am so incredibly proud of not only this honor, but the inclusive environment we have created – one where employees feel welcomed, valued and proud.”
