First Internet Bank, a premier provider of online retail and business banking services nationwide, today announced it has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For . The “Best Banks” program, which was initiated in 2013 to identify, recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation, is a project of American Banker and Best Companies Group.
“It is gratifying to be endorsed as one of the Best Banks to Work For,” said David Becker, President and CEO. “We believe treating our employees well translates into extraordinary service for our customers. Inclusion in this list validates that we are doing the right things to communicate with and empower our employees.”
In all, 35 banks achieved “Best Bank” status in this inaugural program. The full Best Banks to Work For list is featured in the November issue of American Banker Magazine and is available online at AmericanBanker.com .
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involved a two-step process. The first step 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 part 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 top banks and the final ranking.About First Internet Bank First Internet Bank of Indiana opened for business in 1999 as the first state-chartered, FDIC-insured institution to operate solely via the Internet and today has customers in all 50 states.
