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. Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the September issue of American Banker Magazine.

In the second step, employee surveys are 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. 

“I am personally very proud of this honor, and I want to take this opportunity to congratulate and acknowledge every employee at PGB for making this a great place to work,” said Doug Kennedy, President and CEO.  “The professionalism, teamwork and commitment displayed by our entire staff is vital to our success, and helps to instill our core values of integrity and trust in everything we do.”
