WHEELING, W.Va., May 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- WesBanco, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSBC), a multi-state bank holding company with total assets of approximately $9.8 billion, today announced that the central Ohio market of its affiliate, WesBanco Bank, has been awarded a 2017 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, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"WesBanco is extremely pleased to have been voted, for the second consecutive year, as a Top Workplace by our employees," says Lisa Robinson-Shaw, WesBanco Market President for Central Ohio. "For almost 150 years, WesBanco has maintained its strong community banking roots by focusing on the success of the communities in which we do business. As demonstrated by our Better Banking Pledge, we continuously strive to create a better bank by providing superior customer satisfaction. Our success is not possible without the integrity, dedication, passion, and tireless efforts of our employees. To all of our employees, WesBanco would like to thank you for this great honor and congratulate you for your hard work and 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."
