Pinnacle Named One of America’s Top Companies That Care in People Magazine

Pinnacle Financial Partners has again earned a spot on People Magazine’s 100 Companies That Care list, jointly chosen by the publication and Great Place to Work®. Pinnacle came in No. 35 on the list, joining much larger international brands like Target, Salesforce and Hilton, all chosen for the generosity of their company benefits and charitable work, as well as personal accounts of the impact these organizations have made on the lives of their employees.

“There’s no shortage of caring, kindness and compassion among our associates,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s President and CEO. “We are intentional about the care we show to them, our clients and the communities we serve. We are also more committed than ever to taking everybody with us on the path to equitable economic success. This honor recognizes who we are at our core both collectively and individually. Pinnacle may be the name on the list, but it’s the result of work from our associates and hundreds of community partners we are honored to support.”

Pinnacle is committed to being a great place to work and making a significant positive impact on the communities it serves. With a high level of associate engagement, the firm is able to delight clients and drive improvements in its home markets, including the following highlights from 2021 and now.

  • $1.4 billion committed to investments, lending and grants for low- to moderate-income housing, small business and minority-owned institutions in 2021
  • Nearly 25,000 associate volunteer hours in 2021
  • Continued diligence with safety protocols and gradual return to the office to keep associates and clients safe
  • Intentional increase in mental health resources for associates at a time when mental health issues were increasing significantly
  • New partnerships with community organizations to further DEI efforts
