First Tennessee Bank has been recognized as a 2018 Top Workplace, one of only four large employers of 500 or more employees to be honored. This is the second consecutive year First Tennessee has been named a Top Workplace in the Knoxville recognition program that was established in 2017 and is sponsored by the daily newspaper. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
First Tennessee’s East Tennessee Region President Dave Miller also was recognized in the survey as Top Leader based on First Tennessee employee feedback.
“Our daily focus at First Tennessee is on serving clients and helping this community thrive,” said Miller. “We are successful doing just that because we have talented people working together in a truly amazing, inclusive culture. We listen to our employees and proactively seek feedback from them –and then act on that feedback. There’s so much power in the learning that comes from asking really good questions.”
