Ledyard National Bank Named One of the Best Banks to Work For in 2020 by American Banker

HANOVER, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ledyard National Bank has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2020 by American Banker, the banking industry’s premier daily newspaper.

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. 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. Full results of this year’s program are available at americanbanker.com/best-banks-to-work-for and in the November 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 Alan Kline, editor in chief of American Banker.

Kathy Underwood, Ledyard Bank’s President & CEO, added, “We’re so proud to be recognized by American Banker and included in this incredible group of banks nationwide. As one of only two banks recognized across New Hampshire and Vermont, our two markets, the recognition is a testament to the hard and thoughtful work of our fantastic employees and board of directors.”

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.
