Forward Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2019 September 20, 2019
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 American Banker and in the September issue of American Banker Magazine.
“One of the critical factors in a bank’s success is how it treats its employees. This year’s list honors those institutions which have gone above and beyond to invest in employees’ personal and professional growth,” said Rob Blackwell, editor in chief of American Banker.
“Our employees are the force that drives Forward,” commented Bill Sennholz, President and CEO of Forward Bank. “They are the caretakers of our customer relationships and translate our purpose for existing into volunteering and community support that helps us all thrive. It’s with that understanding that we will remain dedicated to creating an environment where our team is happy, successful, and feels that they a part of something positive.”
This is the third consecutive year that Forward Bank has been listed as one of the Best Banks to Work For.
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.
