September 3, 2019, by Lindsey Owens Krausen

For the second year in a row, Oakworth Capital Bank has been named the number one best bank to work for in the United States.  The Best Banks to Work For program, initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding associate satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the September issue of American Banker Magazine.

“Our associates are our most valuable asset,” said Scott Reed, Oakworth chief executive officer. “We know that if we invest in them, create an environment that allows them to flourish and give them the tools necessary to grow and thrive, they will in turn offer our clients the best financial services experience possible.  Oakworth is honored to again be recognized for this effort.”

“One of the critical factors in a bank’s success is how it treats its associates. This year’s list honors those institutions which have gone above and beyond to invest in employees’ personal and professional growth,” said Rob Blackwell, editor in chief of American Banker.

While this marks the second year Oakworth has been in the number one slot, it is their third year to appear on the list.  There is a total of 85 banks from around the country on the list.  Oakworth’s commitment to associates’ continued professional development and an enriched working environment, including elements such as an associate wellness program, are indicative of how Oakworth lives that promise every day.
