Clear Mountain Bank among best in nation for employees

Bruceton Mills — Clear Mountain Bank was  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 is 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,” said David M. Thomas, president and CEO of Clear Mountain Bank.

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 is widely recognized for excellence in financial services, including a 5-star superior rating for financial strength and stability from BauerFinancial.
