Chesapeake Bank a Best Bank to Work For in 2014

At Chesapeake Bank, we always strive to be the bank and employer of choice in each of the communities we serve. That’s why we were so excited to be named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2014!

The program, initiated in 2013 to identify, recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation, is a project of American Banker and Best Companies Group. In all, 40 banks achieved “Best Bank” status this year with Chesapeake Bank at No. 11.

To be considered for participation, banks must fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 50 employees working in the United States;
  • Be a Commercial Bank, Thrift, Mutual Association, Mutual Savings Bank, Savings and Loan Association or a Savings Bank

Determining the Best Banks to Work For involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating bank’s workplace policies, practices and demographics. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determined the top banks and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.

In all, 40 banks achieved “Best Bank” status in this second year for the program. The full Best Banks to Work For list is featured in the November issue of American Banker Magazine and is available online at
