It allows us to deliver a community bank level of service to our clients in every market no matter how much we grow. Everyone deserves a great place to work, and we’ve proven that it improves the client experience and makes our community stronger.”

To be eligible for the Best Banks to Work For list, firms must have at least 50 employees working in the United States and be commercial or retail banks, or the commercial or retail banking units of diversified financial services companies. Selection is a two-step process. First, participating banks are evaluated on their workplace practices and policies. Second, employees are surveyed to assess their experiences in and attitudes about the workplace. Combined scores determine the final ranking.
