Best Community Banks to Work For awards

Today’s most talented employees demand exceptional employers. The December issue of Independent Banker magazine celebrates the community banks with the best workplaces in its inaugural Best Community Banks to Work For awards.

Click here to see the winners from 2019. 

Methodology: Once nominated for the awards, each of the bank’s full-time employees are requested to complete a comprehensive workplace survey hosted by Avannis, an independent research agency. Access to the survey is protected by a pin number unique to each bank, and only banks with a participation rate of 40% or more are eligible to be considered. The survey consists of 38 scaled responses where positive responses earn the most points. For example, a bank whose employees select only the most positive responses would receive an index score of 100%. After sorting banks into 5 asset size categories, those with the highest index scores in each category are selected as the winners.


If you are interested in nominating a bank for next year’s awards and would like to be notified when the nomination process opens, please subscribe to our Nominations email list here.
