LAKEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FirstBank Holding Company, the Lakewood-based holding company for the largest locally owned banking organization in Colorado, today announced that it has been named one of America’s Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics. The bank was ranked #26 among 872 organizations nationwide that participated in regional top workplaces programs.
“We’re thrilled to be considered a Top Workplace among some of the nation’s most recognized companies for employee engagement and satisfaction,” said John Ikard, CEO of FirstBank Holding Company. “Our employees are the foundation of our business and it is rewarding to know they feel FirstBank is a fantastic place to work. Their feedback is a testament to our business model, which promotes only from within and gives each employee a financial stake in the company. I’m sure our company’s founders would be proud to know the business they built continues to not only succeed financially, but also keeps employees happy and healthy.”
The National Top Workplaces list was determined by a third party employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, and 30 leading regional newspapers. FirstBank participated in the Denver Post’s Top Workplaces 2012 program.
The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The survey data revealed that most employees want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future, execute well and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.
