Berkadia Culture

A culture that strives for excellence.

“The company’s biggest focus right now is the future.”

Justin Wheeler, CEO

Our Vision

At Berkadia we are redefining the industry with long-term investments in people and technology that deliver actionable insights and create the best customer experience.

Our Values

Integrity Is Everything

We say what we mean and do what we say. We never fear doing the right thing.

We Take the long view

Our objective is long-term value, not short-term gain.

People matter

Our relationships with customers and colleagues are our most valuable assets.

We stand for excellence

We set the highest standards and hold ourselves to them.

We love
our jobs

When you enjoy what you do, it rarely feels like work.

We innovate

A curious, empowered and diverse workforce challenges the status quo and drives change.

BEST PLACES TO WORK

Berkadia is committed to providing a safe workplace where our employees feel their contributions are valued, they are empowered to create positive impact, and can grow their careers. As a result, Berkadia was selected as one of GlobeSt.’s Best Places to Work in 2023.

Corporate Philanthropy

One of the most important investments we can make as citizens is in our own communities. Employee volunteerism and charitable giving at Berkadia supports a variety of social issues and needs. Through partnerships with existing community organizations and through our own programs, our employees are helping people, changing places and enabling progress in communities worldwide.

As part of our commitment to giving back, we offer a Matching Gift Program and a Gift of Time Program that enable our team members to dedicate their time and resources to supporting the charitable initiatives of their choice.

A Life Changing Experience

At Berkadia, we believe people matter, so giving back to the communities where we live and work is an important part of our culture. After partnering with Habitat for Humanity International to sponsor a single-family house build in Austell, Georgia in July 2021, Berkadia employees were so moved by the experience that they decided to do it again. In August 2022, Berkadia sponsored Habitat for Humanity of NW Metro Atlanta’s second ever two-story single-family house build in Austell, Georgia and in 2023, sponsored the first house of the Marietta Public Service Housing Program for a middle school teacher in Marietta, Georgia.

Berkadia Way

Our culture, or Berkadia Way as we know it, encourages us to truly see people as people, with unique needs, challenges, and objectives. We take this into consideration when working with each other, engaging our clients, and supporting our communities. Thus, instilling a mindset that fosters our shared commitment to self-accountability helps us see our impact on each other and adjust our efforts accordingly.
