Banks understand that an institution’s greatest asset is its people. How employees feel about their organization affects loyalty, performance, culture and the ability of the institution to attract and retain top talent in the financial industry. It’s an element of brand equity that few banks have chosen to capitalize on—and learn from. Now you can.

In June 2009, U.S. Banker is proud to debut the first-annual U.S. Banker’s Best Banks to Work For ranking. Working with Best Companies Group, an independent research company, U.S. Banker will provide industry players with the only banking-focused ranking of top-performing companies based on leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; team building; training and development; compensation; healthcare and wellness benefits; diversity programs; and overall engagement.

Registration deadline to participate in the survey process is February 13, 2009. There is no fee to participate in the confidential survey. Banks can register to participate by visiting The ranking is based on overall results from two surveys: an employer policies and practices benchmark report and an employee engagement benchmark report. 

U.S. Banker will rank the overall top-performing banks in the industry based on total score, but also will break out rankings based on total number of employees and best practices in specific areas (leadership and planning, compensation, diversity, etc.).

In-depth individual company results will be available to all registered companies, and U.S. Banker and Best Companies Group agree not to publish the results of those companies that do not meet ranking eligibility criteria.
