“This recognition is a direct reflection of our employees and their passion to live out the Origin Vision of connecting people to their dreams,” said Lance Hall, president and CEO of Origin Bank. “We are grateful to American Banker for honoring our employees and their commitment to our culture for the tenth consecutive year.”

“The banks recognized on this list are trying hard to create workplaces that employees want to join,” said Chana R. Schoenberger, editor-in-chief of American Banker. “Especially during this moment when companies are experiencing a shift in how, where, and how much employees work, banks are paying attention to how they can best retain their people.”

On the 2022 list, Origin was ranked No. 2 overall and No. 1 in the category for banks with assets more than $3 billion and less than $10 billion. It is the tenth consecutive year that Origin has been recognized by the annual Best Banks to Work For program. The survey and awards program is designed to identify and honor banks with the best cultures for helping employees thrive.

Determining the Best Banks to Work Forinvolved a two-step process. The first 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 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 final ranking.

To be considered for participation, banks had to have at least 50 employees working in the U.S. and been in business for a minimum of one year. Best Companies Group managed the registration and survey process and also analyzed the data to determine the final ranking.
