Ranked No. 5 Top Workplace In Large Company Category For Denver Metro
LAKEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
FirstBank Holding Company, the Lakewood-based holding company for the
second largest bank by deposits in Colorado, today announced that it has
been named one of the Denver area’s “Top 100 Workplaces” by the Denver
Post. The bank was ranked fifth among the honorees in this year’s Large
Company category. This honor represents the third consecutive year that
FirstBank has been included as a Top Workplace by the Denver Post.
“We are always honored with the recognition as one of the Denver area’s
top places to work,” said John Ikard, CEO of FirstBank Holding Company.
“It is rewarding to know that our employees understand that they are
valued, and their feedback proves that our commitment to professional
development and promoting from within creates an environment where
employees are excited about coming into work everyday.”
Companies participating in the Top Workplaces program were evaluated
based on feedback from an employee survey, which used a proprietary set
of 22 questions to rank the companies. The survey measured several
workplace-related qualities, such as leadership, career opportunities,
workplace flexibility, compensation and benefits. The Top Workplaces
rankings are divided into large (more than 500 local employees), midsize
(150-499 local employees) and small (fewer than 150 local employees)
This year, the Denver Post recognized 131 companies and
organizations in the Denver metro area as Top Workplaces. The survey
data revealed that most employees want to work at companies with high
levels of organizational
health. Since its inception five years ago, the Top Workplaces
program has received more than 4,000 applications for surveys and
continues to be a leader in workplace satisfaction surveys.
The Denver Post published the complete list of Top Workplaces on
April 13. For more information about the Top Workplaces list, please
