Arvest Bank Named One of America’s Best Employers by Forbes

Company gets top ranking among retail banks.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of “America’s Best Large Employers” for 2017.

The bank ranked 208th out of the 500 businesses nationwide – with 5,000 or more full- or part-time associates – that scored highest in an independent survey of employees regarding satisfaction with their company. Additionally, Arvest is the highest-ranking community bank among all companies in the banking/financial services category and the only Arkansas-based company on the large employer list.

“Our goal at Arvest is to have happy and highly satisfied customers, and that simply can’t happen without highly motivated, well-trained and happy associates,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “Ultimately, everything we do is about taking care of our customers and helping them find financial products and services that make their lives better.”

The results were determined by a survey conducted by research firm Statista that included almost 30,000 employees from 25 industries. Every employee was asked to anonymously rate their current employer – on a scale of zero to 10 – on how likely they would be to recommend their employer to family or friends. That rating was the biggest determining factor in the assessment. 

The second-most significant factor in the scoring was based on participants’ responses to identify good or bad employers in industries other than their own. Results of these two key elements produced scores for more than 1,800 employers nationwide. The remainder of the survey consisted of 35 other work-related topics.

This is the second year Forbes has compiled its list of America’s Best Employers, and the first time Arvest has been included. Assessments for the 2017 lists were conducted during a four-week period last year.

We've reached our goal early! Let's see how much more we can give!

Arvest Bank announced in early April the beginning of its seventh annual 1 Million Meals initiative, which challenges bank associates, customers and community members to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves by providing meals to those in need. Today, the bank announced the campaign has exceeded one million meals, reaching the goal with more than three weeks remaining in the campaign. A total of 1,013,949 meals have been raised.

Arvest branches throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma have been participating in the 1 Million Meals initiative by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations. These efforts will continue through June 3, with the donations given to the local communities Arvest serves later in the month.

Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families.
