American Banker has announced the results of its fifth annual Best Banks to Work For program, and locally headquartered Marquette Savings Bank is ranked 37th in the nation.
The Best Banks to Work For program, conducted by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. “Our annual ranking recognizes the financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees’ job satisfaction, career development and personal growth – a ‘return on assets’ that can be hard to measure by traditional means,” said Marc Hochstein, editor in chief of American Banker. “One of the most valuable assets for any organization is the team of people it employs, and banks are no exception.”
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves a two-step process. The first step requires 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.
“We were thrilled to be recognized as one of the best banks to work for in the nation. Our employees are our most important asset,” said Michael B. Edwards, CEO of Marquette Savings Bank. “We are fortunate to attract people who are committed to the work we do on behalf of our customers, and creating a work environment where they can thrive is critical to our success. We have taken steps over time to create and maintain a positive work environment where employees feel valued. Knowing that our employees feel the same way about our organization is gratifying.”
The Best Bank ranking was preceded less than 12 months ago by Marquette’s ranking as one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Pennsylvania. Marquette was the only bank named in the northwest Pennsylvania region for both recognition and one of only five banks in Pennsylvania recognized in the Best Banks to Work For program.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and 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. Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the September issue of American Banker magazine.
