WHEELING, W.Va., May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WesBanco, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSBC) today announced that the central Ohio market of its affiliate, WesBanco Bank, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Columbus C.E.O. Magazine. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured for WesBanco locations in the Columbus area, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"WesBanco is extremely pleased to have been voted a Top Workplace by our employees," says Lisa Robinson-Shaw, WesBanco Market President for Central Ohio. "During our nearly 150 years, we have continuously strived to create a better bank and stronger communities. Our success could not have been possible without the integrity, dedication, passion, and customer-centered focus of our employees. To all of our employees, who are the bedrock of the organization, WesBanco would like to thank you for this great honor and congratulate you for a job well done."
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits." says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
