FirstCapital Bank of Texas Named One of the Best Banks to Work For

For the fifth consecutive year, FirstCapital Bank of Texas (FCB) has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2019.

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.

“One of the critical factors in a bank's success is how it treats its employees. This year's list honors those institutions which have gone above and beyond to invest in employees' personal and professional growth,” said Rob Blackwell, editor in chief of American Banker.

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 with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.

FCB was deemed a Best Bank to Work For, for its open communication with its employees. The bank’s human resources department visits each of the bank’s six markets every quarter to hold roundtable discussions with the goal to allow every team member to attend at least one discussion a year. Topics discussed include employee benefits, work spaces and new initiatives.

“We are honored to be named one of the Best Banks to Work For in the country – and number four in the great state of Texas,” said Tracy Bacon, FCB Chief Operating Officer. “We value each and every one of our team members and know that this recognition would not be possible without the help of our employees. It’s by investing in our team members that we can provide the quality service to our customers that they deserve.”

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine 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.
