Origin Bank Named One of the Best Banks to Work For in the US for the Sixth Straight Year


Ruston, LA – Origin Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2018. The 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 in the September issue of American Banker magazine.

“To be recognized for the sixth consecutive year as one of the Best Banks to Work For is a tremendous honor,” said Drake Mills, Origin Bancorp President, Chairman and CEO. “We have an incredible team of bankers who are deeply committed to providing an unmatched customer experience. They believe in our culture and core values, and this is evident every day in the work they do for our company.”

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.

“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.”

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.
