First National Bank Alaska named Best Bank to Work For

First National Bank Alaska has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2018 by American Banker.

The Best Banks to Work For awards, initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction.

“One of the most valuable assets for any organization is the team of people it employs, and banks are no exception,” said Rob Blackwell, editor-in-chief of American Banker. “Our annual ranking recognizes financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees’ job satisfaction, career development and personal growth.”

“With thanks to our wonderful employees, we are honored to receive this recognition by American Banker and Best Companies Group,” said Betsy Lawer, First National Board Chair and CEO. “For nearly a century, our employees have played a leading role in the success of our bank and in the success of the Alaska communities in which they live. We believe in them and we believe in Alaska.”

Alaskan-owned and -operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and branches in 18 communities throughout the state. In 2018, Alaska Business readers voted the bank the “Best of Alaska Business” in two categories, including the Best Place to Work for the third year in a row and best Corporate Citizen for the second year in a row. In January 2018, named First National the most-admired company in the state.
