TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeBanc has been named to American Banker magazine's 2017 Best Banks to Work Forlist, and ranked as the #2 "Best Bank" out of the 75 banks chosen, for the third year in a row. The program, which initiated in 2013, is a project of American Banker and Best Companies Group to recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation.
Determining the Best Banks to Work For first, involves 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, which was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top banks and the final ranking. The full list will feature in the September issue of American Banker magazine and available at www.AmericanBanker.com.
