Monarch Bank Again Named "Best Places To Work"

Stocks in this article: MNRK

CHESAPEAKE, Va., July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  (NASDAQ: MNRK) Monarch Bank, a subsidiary of Monarch Financial Holdings, Inc., has been named one of the "Best Places to Work" in Hampton Roads, Va., by weekly business journal Inside Business. This is the third time Monarch has received this honor. Monarch received the 2011 distinction of first runner up for large-sized companies.

Among Monarch's many benefits, Inside Business highlighted annual profit sharing bonus checks, annual "Monarch Day" celebration of fun, awards and training, the bank's generous days of paid time-off and promotion from within. Says E. Neal Crawford, president of Monarch Bank, "Not only do we hire the best in the bank and mortgage industry, but we nurture from within. Eighteen employees were promoted in 2010."

"Monarch puts employees first," stated Brad E. Schwartz, CEO of Monarch Bank. "Happy employees create loyal and happy clients. Monarch is then successful and our shareholders are then rewarded."

This is the ninth year that Inside Business has honored companies in Hampton Roads as the "Best Places to Work." To be selected for the honor, companies submitted information about their culture, annual turnover, employee satisfaction, fair and equitable treatment, compensation, benefits and employee training opportunities. To be considered, each company had to have a sufficient number of employees respond to an online survey, and the judges considered those comments in making their final selections.
