November 03, 2014, 2:16 PM

City Bank, headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2014. The 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. City Bank has been ranked number ten.

The culture of the bank, combined with the many employee-focused programs, such as the Wellness Program, has helped City Bank be named one of the Best Banks to Work For, for the second year in a row. The City Bank Wellness Program was implemented in the late 1990s and pays incentives to employees to promote exercise, weight loss, and a healthy lifestyle.

A variety of family-friendly events and unique opportunities provide employees and their families an atmosphere and corporate lifestyle that goes beyond the workplace. “If you don’t understand that the family you have outside the bank is more important than the work you do in the bank, you’ve got your priorities in the wrong place,” says City Bank Chairman of the Board, Curtis Griffith.

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. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
