Return to top
JOHNSON CITY - State of Franklin Savings Bank received notice recently that it has been named one of Tennessee's best employers by Business Tennessee magazine in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management, Tennessee State Council, Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Best Companies Group. The bank was one of 25 companies in the state to receive the designation and the only Tri-Cities-based financial institution to receive the honor. "We are pleased that we received this honor amid all the companies in the state of Tennessee," said Chairman and CEO Charles E. Allen Jr. "We have strived to create an environment within our organization where employees are well-trained, focused on customer service, and enjoy where they work. This reiterates to me that when you create an atmosphere where people can grow both personally and professionally, and you hire great people, great things happen." The award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Tennessee, benefiting the state's economy, its work force and businesses. Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Employers in Tennessee. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Tennessee with assistance from ModernThink LLC, which analyzed the data and used its expertise to determine the final rankings.
