Employee value, culture of inclusion, and strengthening community contribute to bank’s strong culture
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – June 22, 2020 – Reliant Bank has been recognized as a Top Workplace of 2020. Sponsored by the Tennessean, the award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, connection, and benefits.
As a proud regional employer, being named a top workplace is an indicator of Reliant’s strong and healthy culture. “Being recognized by our employees is especially significant this year,” said DeVan Ard, Jr., Reliant’s chairman, president and CEO. “With the challenges of the pandemic, two major acquisitions and the growth they bring, we understand that cultural alignment drives success. This award tells me that we are doing a lot of things right to help our employees be happy and successful in their jobs.”
As one of the leading financial institutions in Middle Tennessee, Reliant is committed to diversity and inclusion efforts that have consistently strengthened the bank’s culture. These efforts are emphasized in the bank’s values and are carried out each day. Reliant also strives to strengthen the communities in which they live and work, playing an important role through numerous donations and consistent volunteering.
“We have lived through a series of events that, ninety days ago, none of us could have imagined,” said Ard. “Through it all, our team has done an outstanding job of not only caring for our customers, but also their families, communities and each other. I continue to be impressed by our employees’ ability to carry out our values – which are guided by compassion, understanding, self-awareness, empathy and decency – each day.”
As a top workplace, Reliant recognizes that a great employer supports the needs of its workforce, offering opportunities, great benefits and competitive pay. They strive to show appreciation and be diligent about recognizing individual successes. Effective training and support for personal and professional growth, along with an understanding of the importance of work and life balance are also key to maintaining a positive culture.
