Signature Bank Ranks # 16 on American Banker and Best Companies Group List of Best Banks to Work For

Signature Bank, a full-service commercial bank based in Chicago, has been named one of the best banks to work for in the U.S. in a survey conducted by American Banker Magazine and the Best Companies Group. The survey and recognition program seek to identify and recognize the best employers in the banking industry across the United States.

Signature Bank ranked 16th out of 5,000 banks eligible to apply for and receive the award. The award specifically recognized Signature Bank for what employees noted in survey responses as a sense of family, teamwork, cooperation, and shared success.

“We are so proud to be recognized as a great place to work in our first year of eligibility based on the fifty employee minimum,” said Mick O’Rourke, President and CEO of Signature Bank. “We believe our employees are second to none and we try to make sure they know they are truly valued every day. Part of the Signature Bank value proposition is to exceed the expectations of our customers, investors, and employees and this award validates that we’re getting it right.”

The assessment consists of two surveys that gather detailed information about each participating bank. BCG conducts the survey, analyzes the data, and determines the rankings. The research looks at company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Separately, employees are surveyed on their level of satisfaction and engagement. The Best Bank program is open to any commercial bank, thrift, mutual association, mutual savings bank, savings and loan association, or savings bank with more than fifty employees in the U.S.
