RUSTON – Origin Bank has been named one of the top three Best Banks to Work For in 2021 by American Banker.
This is the ninth consecutive year Origin has been recognized by American Banker and Best Companies Group for their program which identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction.
“It’s an incredible honor to be named as one of the top three Best Banks to Work For by American Banker,” said Drake Mills, Origin Bancorp chairman, president and CEO. “The dynamic culture we have at Origin Bank is driven by a passionate commitment to our employees, customers, communities and shareholders. To have that commitment recognized by this prestigious program is truly a privilege.”
Determining the Best Banks to Work For is a two-step process. The first step involves a thorough evaluation of participating companies’ workplace policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, an in-depth questionnaire directly assesses the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.
“We are relationship-focused in everything we do, not only in the way we do business but in the way we create value for our employees as well,” said Lance Hall, president and CEO of Origin Bank. “This recognition is a reflection of our core values and the shared belief we have to make a positive impact on the world around us.”
“One of the critical factors in a bank’s success is how it treats its employees. This year’s list honors those institutions which have gone above and beyond to invest in employees’ personal and professional growth,” said Alan Kline, editor in chief of American Banker.
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. For more information on eligibility or other questions related to the Best Banks to Work For program, visit www.BestBankstoWorkFor.com.
