Amerant Bank has earned the No. 48 ranking in Newsweek’s annual rankings for the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces list. The new spot was six places ahead of Amerant Bank’s No. 54 ranking in 2022. The rankings result from collaborating with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company.
“We are excited to be recognized again as a Most Loved Workplace,” Jerry Plush says, Chairman and CEO at Amerant Bank. “This acknowledgment reflects the true passion and dedication our team members have to each other, our customers, and to our organization overall.”
The rankings were determined through a survey that included over 1.4 million employees from businesses of various sizes ranging from 50 to over 10,000. The list emphasizes organizations that have established a work environment where employees feel valued, motivated, and respected and are integral to the company’s core values.
“With the dynamic workforce and competition for top talent, more companies are recognizing the importance of employee engagement and commitment,” Nancy Cooper says, Global Editor in Chief for Newsweek. “The workplaces that have demonstrated a commitment to their employees in 2023 are more likely to attract top talent and deliver strong business outcomes.”
To identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces, the analysis is based on several key areas such as Systemic Collaboration, Positive Vision of the Future, Alignment of values, Respect, and Killer Achievement as defined by BPI. The evaluation also measures employees’ engagement, positivity about their workplace and commitment to the organization’s success.
“Attracting and retaining top talent continues to be a challenge and top priority of executive leadership,” Louis Carter says, CEO of Best Practice Institute. “The companies on this list have committed to listening intently to their employees and then creating a better workplace where employees love to come to work.”
