For the seventh consecutive year, First Citizens National Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For by the Best Banks to Work For program.
FirstCNB currently ranks eighth overall for banks across the entire United States and No. 1 in the state of Tennessee.
“Our leadership philosophy is driven by people-centered leadership actions,” Jeff Agee, chairman and CEO, said. “FirstCNB’s vision describes who we are and what we stand for: People Centered and Unbelievably Good.”
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 Rob Blackwell, 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.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also 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.
