Fremont Bank Honored as a Top Bay Area Workplace
Ranks as the #1 community bank in employee satisfaction
FREMONT, Calif. June 26, 2012 - Fremont Bank, a leading full-service community bank in Northern California, has been named one of the Bay Area's best places to work and ranks as the top community bank in employee satisfaction. The award marks the second straight year Fremont Bank has been honored for its strong commitment to employee growth and development.
Organized by Bay Area News Group, the Bay Area Top Workplaces award is given to companies based solely upon the opinions of employees. Participating employees are given an independent survey in which they are asked to rank their employers on company conditions, direction, execution, career path, managers, pay and benefits. Nearly 400 Fremont Bank employees responded to the survey.
According to anonymous published responses, employees cited Fremont Bank's commitment to professional development, an “open door” policy between management and employees, the quality of people and respect for employee input as important workplace benefits.
“At Fremont Bank, we strive to ensure our associates are rewarded for their hard work and given every opportunity to succeed,” said Fremont Bank President Andy Mastorakis. “This recognition is a testament to the quality of all Fremont Bank professionals and our commitment to their ongoing development and personal well-being.”
As part of the San Jose Mercury News' coverage of the Bay Area Top Workplaces, Fremont Bank associates were mentioned for their commitment to community involvement:
“Fremont Bank's FB Team Heroes is a group of employees that volunteers to provide team-building activities which help the community, such as painting rooms at a shelter, planting trees in a local park and filling up holiday baskets. The Fremont Bank Foundation, established in 1995, has contributed from $1,000 to $1 million to area non-profits.”
