ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — For the second year in a row, American Banker named Capital Bank, N.A., one of the “Best Banks to Work For” in the U.S. Commercial and retail banks are considered for the American Banker accolade after extensive employee surveys and employer reports on benefits and policies, one of the main criteria being the creation of a workplace that elevates employees’ personal and professional growth.
“We strive to make sure our work environment and culture bring out the best in every one of us,” said Eric Suss, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer at Capital Bank. “That’s why we built in flexibility, paid time off and a collaborative work style into our policies and procedures, to reinforce and reward that peak-performance mindset.”
Suss added that employees also value Capital Bank’s brand of servant leadership, dedication to clients, and daily opportunities to exercise creativity in helping solve clients’ problems. “Every member of our team knows they’re engaged in truly meaningful work,” added Suss.
“Our company culture is the key to our success,” said Capital Bank CEO Edward Barry. “At Capital Bank, we are each an important member of the team, and it’s that shared philosophy and camaraderie that empowers us to achieve the unthinkable for our clients.”

The program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the U.S. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
