TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tampa-based HomeBanc N.A. announces it has been named to American Banker magazine's 2015 Best Banks to Work For list. HomeBanc was ranked as the #2 bank to work for out of the 50 banks chosen for the list. The program is a project of American Banker and Best Companies Group. To be considered for participation, banks had to have at least 50 employees working in the U.S., and be a commercial bank, thrift, mutual association, mutual savings bank, savings and loan association or a savings bank.
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 confidential 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. The full list is featured in the September issue of American Banker magazine and is available online at www.AmericanBanker.com.
