Clear Mountain Bank Named
one of the Best Banks to Work For in the Nation

Posted on: October 28th, 2020

Clear Mountain Bank has been named one of the nation’s Best Banks to Work For by American Banker and Best Companies Group.

The Best Banks to Work For program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the banking industry throughout the United States for providing outstanding employee satisfaction.

“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 Alan Kline, editor in chief of American Banker.

Determining the Best Banks to Work For consists of a two-step process, conducted by Best Companies Group. The first step is an evaluation of the bank’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to directly assess the experiences and sentiments of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.

The process revealed that Clear Mountain Bank employees’ overall sentiment pointed to an outstanding leadership team that continually puts its employees first and makes having a collaborative workplace a priority.

“Being recognized as one of the best banks to work for in the nation, is something we are incredibly proud of. Our dedicated team members serve as the heart and soul of our bank, and they certainly deserve a great work environment and opportunities to enjoy rewarding careers,” states David M. Thomas, President and CEO of Clear Mountain Bank.

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

Clear Mountain Bank is a locally owned and managed community bank that has been serving North Central West Virginia and western Maryland for more than 125 years. The bank provides a comprehensive array of digital and traditional banking products and services to meet the needs of its personal, business, commercial, mortgage and financial planning customers. The bank is widely recognized for excellence in financial services, including a 5-star superior rating for financial strength and stability from BauerFinancial.
