Valley View, Ohio, August 18, 2017 – Safeguard Properties, the mortgage field services industry leader, is pleased to announce that Jennifer Anspach, assistant vice president of human capital, has been named an HR Executive of the Year Finalist in the private companies category for Crain’s Cleveland Business’s 2017 Archer Awards.

“We congratulate Jennifer on being recognized for the significant role she plays leading our associates,” said Alan Jaffa, Safeguard’s CEO. “Over the past few years, Jennifer has worked diligently to ensure Safeguard is a premier workplace by establishing new employee policies and initiatives. She is always up for a challenge and deserves this recognition.”

Jennifer is focused on the needs of the company’s associates and their work-life balance through the implementation of innovative initiatives like work from home, part-time, and flex schedules, in addition to a casual dress code, Wellness initiative, and career enhancement and tracking opportunities through goal development and training.
