LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Stock Yards Bank & Trust has once again been named one of the Best Banks to Work For by American Banker and Best Companies Group. The community bank, which has 73 branch offices in Louisville, central, eastern and northern Kentucky, and the Indianapolis, Indiana and Cincinnati, Ohio metropolitan markets, was one of only 90 banks featured on the 2022 list.
The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available at AmericanBanker.com and in the November print issue of American Banker magazine.
“A great career is about your whole life experience, and making this list proves we’re doing something right in promoting work/life balance and career growth for our teams,” said Stock Yards Bank Chairman and CEO James A. (Ja) Hillebrand. “It means a lot to know that our employees recognize and appreciate how Stock Yards Bank invests in them for our mutual success.”
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. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to directly assess the experiences and attitudes of individual employees concerning their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.
When asked about the bank’s dedication to its more than 1000 stellar employees, Hillebrand told American Banker that “we are delighted to promote from within and provide opportunities for professional development and growth, resulting in financial security for employees and their families.” Stock Yards Bank grew substantially since the 2021 list, adding hundreds of new employees through recent bank mergers. The bank’s continued success is built on relationships with employees and customers.
