For the third straight year, Marquette Savings Bank, of Erie and Crawford County, PA has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2020. This year Marquette improved on its 2019 ranking and is now ranked 22nd in the nation. This is the third consecutive year Marquette has been recognized as a Best Bank to Work For.
The Best Banks to Work For program was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group. The program identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. 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.
Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker 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.

For Michael Edwards, CEO at Marquette, this year’s ranking was particularly gratifying. “Banking is a relationship-based business and you simply cannot be successful if employees are not committed to your customers and organization. By every measure our exceptional performance during the 2020 Pandemic is a perfect example. Our employees came together as a team and truly made a difference for all our customers. The Best Banks recognition simply validates what we already knew; the foundation for any successful organization is with the satisfaction its employees.”
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process. They analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking. 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.
