Clear Mountain Bank has been named one of the nation’s 2022 Best Banks to Work For by American Banker magazine and Best Companies Group for the third consecutive year.

The Best Banks to Work For is a survey and awards program dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers and providing organizations with valuable employee feedback. Now in its tenth year, the program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the banking industry throughout the United States for providing outstanding employee satisfaction.

“We are incredibly proud to be recognized as one of the 90 financial institutions named to the Best Banks to Work For in the country! Clear Mountain Bank is committed to providing a culture and atmosphere, whereby team members can feel valued, recognized, and realize they are an integral part of the bank and the communities we serve. We are grateful for the dedication of our valued team members,” states David M. Thomas, president and CEO of Clear Mountain Bank.

American Banker is a partner with Best Companies Group for this competition to identify banks that excel at creating positive and supportive workplaces for employees. Determining the Best Banks to Work For consists of a two-step process, conducted and managed by Best Companies Group. The first step is an evaluation of the bank's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to consider the experiences and sentiments of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.

Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the November issue of American Banker magazine. To view the full list of this year’s winning banks, click here.
