FREMONT, Calif., June 18, 2013 - Fremont Bank, a leading full-service community bank in California, has been named a Top Bay Area Workplace and ranks as the region’s only community bank honored for employee satisfaction for the third straight year.
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 direction, execution, career development, managers, pay and benefits, and employee engagement. Nearly 500 Fremont Bank employees responded to the survey.
According to anonymous published responses, employees cited Fremont Bank’s commitment to work-life balance, supportive management team / work environment and employee appreciation as important workplace benefits.
“Fremont Bank’s success is due in large part to the outstanding employees who work hard each day to serve our clients and improve our communities. This recognition reflects our commitment to building a culture that values professional opportunity, mutual respect and a spirit of excellence at all levels of the bank,” said Fremont Bank President Andy Mastorakis.
Awards were given in three company categories - large, midsize and small. Fremont Bank ranks 10th in the large company category and is the only full-service, community bank recognized in any category over the last three years.
The San Jose Mercury News’ coverage of Bay Area Top Workplaces highlighted Fremont Bank Foundation’s charitable giving and the bank’s associates for their commitment to the community through volunteerism.
