“Our first measure of success is to be recognized as a ‘Great Place to Work for Great People’”, said Lynn Harton, chairman and chief executive officer of United Community Bank. “Everything – our customer satisfaction, our financial performance, and our community impact – begins with being a place our employees believe in. Our company’s success would not be achieved without the combined efforts of our amazing team and I’m pleased to see them recognized in this way.”
Since 2013, the Best Banks to Work For program by American Banker and Best Companies Group has identified, recognized, and honored U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available online at American Banker and in the November issue of American Banker Magazine.
Determining the Best Banks to Work For is a two-step process. The first step involves 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.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine 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.
