“We’re flattered to receive the Best Banks recognition two years in a row,” said David Becker, President and CEO. “With employee feedback playing such a large role in the overall scoring, I view our repeat appearance on this list as a testament to our continued commitment to our team. At First Internet Bank, we believe that an appealing work environment attracts talented employees who are passionate about their work — and our customers.”
First Internet Bank is one of 40 banks that achieved “Best Bank” status in the 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.
“Best Banks” are determined through a two-step evaluation process. Worth approximately 25% of the total score, the first step included an assessment of the policies, practices and demographics for each participating bank. The second part considers employee surveys that are aimed at gauging 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.
