We are honored to have been named one of the 2019 Best Banks to Work For for the third consecutive year. The Best Banks to Work For program, initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction.
“One of our objectives is to be the best place for great bankers to work,” said Lynn Harton, chairman and chief executive officer of United Community Bank. “When we work toegether, we do good things for each other, our customers and our communities. Our culture has once again earned us a spot on this prestigious list, and I could not be more pleased to work with such a talented team.”
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves a two-step process. The first step includes an evaluation of participating companies’ workplace policies, practices and demographics. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to directly assess the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking. The program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the United States.
We are also proud to have been awarded 2018 Top Workplaces recognition in the Atlanta Metro Area for the second year in a row. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including but not limited to, Alignment, Execution and Connection.
United also received the same honors in the state of South Carolina in 2017.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
