Our culture

American Homes 4 Rent 2021 Certification Badge (1)

Work where you feel at home

Since 2012, we’ve become one of the leading residential leasing companies and top homebuilders nationally, powered by a team of 1,600. As pioneers in the single-family rental industry, we maintain a fluid start-up culture of innovation and collaboration, while operating with the permanency of a well-established corporation. As we expand, our people remain our best resource. That’s why we’re committed to cultivating an inclusive workplace with competitive benefits and growth opportunities.

Employee wellness

We promote the mental, physical and financial well-being of our employees through competitive benefits, robust healthcare plans, assistance programs and additional resources to support a balanced lifestyle. Because their health is a top priority, we provide annual safety trainings and have implemented rigorous protocols in response to COVID-19. And, to cultivate dialogue, we conduct pulse surveys through which employees can let us know how they—and we—are doing in real time.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

We know that building a sustainable future can only be accomplished through a diverse workforce and inclusive culture where employees feel empowered to bring their authentic selves to the table. We foster an environment of respect through our Valuing Differences training and employ in-house consultants specializing in diversity, equity, and inclusion to drive key initiatives. As we grow, we work to ensure that our team reflects the communities we serve and that we continue to lead industry benchmarks in minority representation.

Training and development

We strive to ensure that our employees have the business and technical skills they need to succeed in their roles and advance their careers at our company. Every employee has access to a robust development platform through AH4R University, and our curricular programs cover on-the-job skills, leadership courses and diversity, equity and inclusion training. In 2020, we provided approximately 71,900 hours of training for an average of 50 hours per employee.

Community engagement

We are committed to having a positive impact on the communities in which we operate. Through our Planting Seeds program, we encourage employees to participate in corporate-sponsored charitable events and local volunteer initiatives that build meaningful connections with residents, neighbors and local non-profits. Read more about our social sustainability initiatives in our 2020 ESG Report.

In addition to building houses, we build careers, too.

At AH4R, we know what it takes to feel at home. That’s not just our product; it’s our culture. We work hard to foster an environment of transparency, teamwork and trust, where individuals are empowered to collaborate and take initiative. We aspire to cultivate an inclusive workforce that reflects the diversity of our resident communities. That’s why we look for professionals that can not only advance our goals, but who are also committed to uplifting their peers. Just as we believe in caring for our residents, we believe in caring for each other. We offer listening tools to receive feedback from our colleagues, support work-life balance and provide resources for life-long learning. If you’re ready to elevate your career, we hope you'll consider making your home with us.
