BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reliant Bank, a subsidiary of Reliant Bancorp, Inc., has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017 by American Banker Magazine. This fifth annual event identifies, recognizes, and honors the top 75 banks across the country for employee satisfaction.
“We are honored to be named one of the Best Banks to Work For. This recognition reflects our organization’s commitment to the well-being of our employees,” said Kim York, EVP, Chief Strategy Officer. “We believe employee satisfaction directly affects customer satisfaction. Creating and maintaining a rewarding work environment and a family-like atmosphere is a priority for us as we continue to grow and expand services across our markets.”
The Best Banks to Work For program was established in 2013 to honor financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees’ job satisfaction, career development, and personal growth. Determining the Best Banks to Work For is a two-step process. The first step involves an evaluation of participating companies’ policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, employees complete a voluntary survey to assess their experiences and attitudes about their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the survey, analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
Survey results discussed family atmosphere, community involvement, encouragement to have fun in the workplace, and employee feelings of being valued and appreciated. Reliant staff’s favorite activities include: celebrating special occasions like employee birthdays and anniversaries, supporting the Predators by wearing their Preds gear, and the Yay of the Day email recognizing an employee who has exceeded expectations with services, sales, or good deeds. Employees also cited Reliant-hosted personal development and stress management workshops as a favorite benefit.
The Best Banks to Work For program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the United States. Full results of the 2017 program are available at americanbanker.com.
