downloadHeartland Bank is pleased to announce we’ve been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2021! Heartland Bank ranked 57th out of 90 recipients, 37th among 57 banks with less than $3 billion of assets, and 1 of 2 Nebraska banks to be included on the list. 

The Best Banks to Work For program was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, and identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available on American Banker.com and in their November/December 2021 issue of the American Banker Magazine.

John Wilkins, President and CEO of Heartland Bank, attributes the achievement to the Heartland Bank associates. “We have an outstanding team at Heartland Bank and we are honored to be named one of the Best Banks to Work For in the U.S. I can’t thank our associates enough for what they do daily for each other, our customers and our communities.”

Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves a two-step process. The first step involves an evaluation of participating companies’ workplace policies, practices, and demographics. Second, employees are surveyed to assess their experience and engagement in working for their employer. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking. The program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the United States.
