TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeBanc N.A. announces it has been named to American Banker magazine's 2016 Best Banks to Work For list, and was ranked as the #2 bank to work for out of the 60 banks chosen for the list for the second consecutive year. The program is a project of American Banker and Best Companies Group to recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation. 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 August 29th issue of American Banker magazine and is available online at www.AmericanBanker.com.
