How banks sweeten the pot for employees with (extra) time off
For the institutions on the Best Banks to Work For list, it certainly isn’t all work and no play.
The 85 banks on the sixth annual list reward employees with paid time off. Ninety percent of employees who work at banks that made the list this year said they were satisfied with the amount of vacation they receive.
These banks also try to be flexible and accommodate the personal lives of their employees. Ninety-two percent of banks on the list said they provided employees with flexible hours to allow time to take care of personal needs, such as attending school events or taking a family member to the doctor. Three quarters of the banks on the list require no or minimum overtime of employees.
A number of these banks have come up with creative ways to give their employees extra days off, whether that’s celebrating little things like birthdays or big milestones like getting married.
Here is a look at some of the ways employees at the Best Banks can get extra paid time off.
