    JOPLIN, Mo. (May 25, 2017) – 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 not just in Missouri, but among all companies in the banking/financial services category.
    “We are truly honored to see that our associates consider us the best community bank in the country to work for and that shows through their interaction with our customers,” Arvest President Chad Evans said. “When our associates are motivated and believe in the company for whom they work, our customers are satisfied and happy and we are very fortunate to see that.”
    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.
