Davie, FL — Bankers Healthcare Group (BHG), the source of the most innovative financial solutions available on the market today and the creator of the largest community bank loan and product network in the country, held its place as one of the country’s top five Best Workplaces in Financial Services, as ranked by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine. BHG took the No. 5 spot in the small and medium company category, marking its sixth consecutive year on the list.
“We are humbled to have evolved, grown, and thrived throughout an unprecedented 2020, and enter 2021 as a best place to work. Financial services is an extremely competitive industry, and we’re honored that our culture stands out as being one of the best in the nation,” said Eric Castro, Co-Founder of Bankers Healthcare Group. “It’s incredible to have witnessed our company grow in the face of adversity and hold onto its entrepreneurial spirit and startup mindset. We’re grateful to our people for their loyalty and perseverance and look forward to continuing the year strong.”
According to Fortune, the companies recognized instill trust in their people, allowing them to reach their full potential. Fortune also wrote how despite a year of crises, the companies worked to deepen employees’ sense of purpose and commitment. BHG employees said they appreciate how BHG’s CEO and founders are present, involved, and make employees feel important and appreciated.
The Best Workplaces in Financial Services list is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 840,000 current employees across the U.S. In that survey, 98% of BHG’s employees said BHG is a great place to work, compared to 59% at a typical U.S.-based company.
One key area BHG focused on this past year to continue building a great workplace culture was creating an employee experience that offers the same benefits, perks and ease-of-access for in-office and remote employees alike and perfecting a system that caters to team members work preferences. Our philosophy is: “BHG builds people who build BHG,” meaning we are committed to investing in our employees so they can realize their full potential. In the midst of the pandemic, we accomplished this by taking our entire workforce remote, offering stipends for home offices, adding new offerings to our mental and physical wellness programs, and adapting our benefits for a virtual setting to help maintain our culture and employee engagement.
“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance. These companies are meeting the moment. Not only have they pivoted to new ways of working, but their employees’ report an even better company culture than before COVID-19,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO Great Place to Work®.“The leaders of these companies can expect excellent business results thanks to their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”
