Ruston, LA – Origin Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017. The program, which was initiated in 2013 to identify, recognize, and honor the best banks to work for in the nation, is a project of American Banker Magazine and Best Companies Group. To be considered for participation, banks had to have at least 50 employees working in the U.S., and be a commercial bank, thrift, mutual association, mutual savings bank, savings and loan association, or a savings bank. In all, 75 banks achieved “Best Bank” status in this fifth year for the program. The full Best Banks to Work For list is featured in the September issue of American Banker Magazine and is available online at AmericanBanker.com.
“It is an honor to be recognized for the fifth straight year as one of the Best Banks to Work For in the nation,” said Drake Mills, Origin Bancorp President, Chairman and CEO. “This recognition is a direct reflection of our employees and their commitment to the Origin Bank culture and core values. Every day our employees work tirelessly not only to make our company successful, but to enrich people’s lives, and they do it in a way that makes it enjoyable and rewarding.”
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating bank’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined 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 rankings.
