INDIANA, Pa., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S&T Bank (NASDAQ: STBA), a full-service financial institution with branch locations in 11 Pennsylvania counties, has been recognized by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) as one of the "2013 Best Employers for Workers Over 50." S&T Bank was one of 50 companies honored as part of the national award, which recognizes employers from a variety of industry sectors, including for-profit and nonprofit, health care, universities, financial services, construction, aerospace, and federal and county government.
"At S&T Bank, we know that our employees are our most valuable resource, and when they are motivated and engaged, this translates to a better experience for our customers," said Todd D. Brice, president and chief executive officer of S&T Bank. "We're pleased to be recognized for our efforts to foster the careers of our older workforce by a respected organization like AARP. These workers bring invaluable experience to their jobs at the bank every day, and that benefits both the organization and our customers. We thank them for their ongoing contributions."
S&T Bank also made AARP's Best Employers for Workers Over 50 list in 2011 and 2009. The bank was applauded by AARP for its continuing education opportunities; health and wellness benefits; financial benefits, including 401(k) plan with employer match; flexible work arrangements; retiree programs; and overall age and tenure of its workforce.
AARP also recognized S&T Bank's Wellness Rewards Program, which gives employees the opportunity to earn funds for their Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). Points that convert into dollars are earned by completing wellness-related activities focusing on lifestyle improvement, condition management and preventive care. Employees earn points by getting a flu shot, having a BMI or biometric screening, attending the organization's health fair, getting a physical exam, completing a walkathon/race, or getting personal nutrition coaching.
Cosponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the 2013 AARP Best Employers for Workers Over 50 award winners were announced on June 17, 2013 at the SHRM annual conference in Chicago. Since its inception in 2001, the award has recognized employers who have implemented programs that help them retain, train, engage and recruit older workers who will be increasingly crucial to their success and the success of the U.S. economy over the coming decade.
