First Bank & Trust Co. has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For for the fourth consecutive year!
The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available at www.americanbanker.com.
“It’s been a tough year for the financial services industry. High interest rates have cut into banks’ bottom lines. The unemployment rate has remained near historic lows, making it difficult to recruit and retain talent. And a banking crisis led to three of the four largest bank failures in U.S. history. But through it all, a select group managed to keep their employees extremely happy, engaged and on board with their culture and mission,” stated American Banker Executive Editor, Jackie Stewart.
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves 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. For more information on eligibility or other questions related to the Best Banks to Work For program, visit www.BestBankstoWorkFor.com.
