Management may come naturally to some people. But Capital City Bank doesn't leave the task to nature.

The bank offers a course to all new managers, as well as some veteran managers, to ingrain its own management style.

Bank leaders also benefit from Capital City's Career Camp, a program that brings together employees who demonstrate leadership potential. They spend a year in the program, wrapping up their bankwide training with the presentation of a project to executive management.

Branch employees often hold client appreciation events and celebrate holidays, such as Halloween and Christmas.

They also suffer through periodic bouts of bad weather, primarily from hurricanes and tropical storms. But when the rain falls and the wind blows, employee can count on Capital City.

If severe weather shuts down the bank's operations, employees get paid leave without having to use paid time off. If they can't make it home, the bank picks up the hotel and restaurant tab.

Capital City, founded in 1895, operates more than 65 branches in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
