West Plains Bank and Trust Company was recently named as one of the 2021 Biz 417’s Best Places to Work. The awards program was created by Biz 417 in partnership with Best Companies Group.
This regional survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in southwest Missouri, benefiting the region's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2021 Biz 417’s Best Places to Work list is made up of 20 companies. Among those 20, West Plains Bank and Trust Company ranked ninth.
According to West Plains Bank and Trust Company President and Chief Executive Officer David M. Gohn, this honor is a testament to the work culture created by our bank team. “Coming to work each day with this group of bankers is a great experience, every day,” he said. “They are committed to one another, to our customers and to making work both fun and productive. There’s an undeniable energy inside our doors and we are honored to have been recognized for it.”
Companies from across the region entered the two-part process to determine Biz 417’s Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in southwest Missouri and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
