First National named Best Bank to Work For in the U.S for second consecutive year

For the second year in a row, American Banker has named First National Bank Alaska one of the nation’s Best Banks to Work For.

The Best Banks to Work For award, initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies and honors banks across the U.S. for exceptional employee satisfaction.

“A critical factor in a bank’s success is how it treats its employees,” said Rob Blackwell, editor in chief of American Banker. “This year’s list honors those institutions which have gone above and beyond to invest in employees’ personal and professional growth.”

“First National is honored to receive this recognition by American Banker and Best Companies Group for the second consecutive year,” said Betsy Lawer, First National Board Chair and CEO. “Again being named ‘Best Bank to Work For’ is a testament to First National’s commitment to creating and sustaining a positive environment for our employees. We couldn’t do this without the hard work of our local banking experts who are dedicated to making their communities stronger.”

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, and by providing banking services to meet their needs across the nation and around the world. In 2019, Alaska Business readers voted the bank the “Best of Alaska Business” in the Best Place to Work category for the fourth year in a row. In 2019, American Banker recognized First National as a “Best Bank to Work For” for the second year in a row. In 2018, MSN.com named First National the most admired company in the state and the bank received the Rita Sholton Large Business of the Year Award from the Alaska Chamber.
