Forward Financial Bank Named One of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017
Submitted to FOCUS – 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.
“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 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.
“The honor of making the Best Banks to Work For list for 2017 resonates with the Board and leadership team,” commented Bill Sennholz, President & CEO of Forward Financial Bank. “This recognition is a direct result of our team knowing how valuable they are to Forward and our customers. Their belief in our organization is what drives us forward in a very special way.”
