Best Banks to Work For

News Release

Sandusky, OH (August 30, 2017) - Civista Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017. "We are honored to be named to the Best Banks list for the fifth consecutive year," said James O. Miller, Civista Bank Chairman and CEO.

The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Civista was among 75 banks named to the 2017 list. Full results of this year's program are available at American Banker and in the September issue of American Banker Magazine.

"Our annual ranking recognizes the financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees' job satisfaction, career development and personal growth - a 'return on assets' that can be hard to measure by traditional means," said Marc Hochstein, editor in chief of American Banker. "One of the most valuable assets for any organization is the team of people it employs, and banks are no exception."

"We are privileged to have such a dedicated group of employees who is committed to delivering world class service to our customers and fellow employees alike," added Civista Bank President Dennis Shaffer.

Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves an evaluation of participating companies' workplace policies, practices, and demographics. Employee surveys are then conducted to directly assess the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.
