Trade publication American Banker has released its first list of best places to work in the industry. Proudly atop the section for banks with assets of $3 billion to $10 billion is Pinnacle Financial Partners, where Terry Turner says his goals for team chemistry are the same as they were at the company's founding 13 years ago.
The editors of Fortune have compiled their 2013 list of the country's best workplaces, and local bank holding company Pinnacle Financial Partners features proudly on the small and medium-size category ranking. Check out Pinnacle's blurb here and the full list here.
Nashville email marketing firm Emma has been named one of the 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces in the country by Inc. magazine and Winning Workplaces. Emma, founded in 2003 and now employing about 100, is one of only 50 companies to make the list and the only one from Tennessee.
Baptist Hospital and Sarah Cannon Research Institute both are listed on Modern Healthcare magazine's recently-released 'Best Places to Work in Healthcare' list. For now, the 100-company list is arranged alphabetically. The trade publication will reveal a ranked list at an event in October. The selection is based on information collected from the employer employees of health care companies with at least 25 employees in areas including leadership and planning, culture and communications, work environment, training and development, pay and benefits, and more.
The winning firms have at least 8 percent lawyers working reduced hours (versus an average 5 percent nationwide) and at least 20 percent women equity partners (versus an average 16 percent nationwide). Bass, Berry & Sims PLC was recognized for a number of ongoing related initiatives, including increased use of flex-time, reduced-hour schedules, and other family-friendly policies.
"Being in the company of some of the nation's greatest businesses is a remarkable achievement. This has long been a goal of ours and reflects the value of the work we do, our commitment to the people we serve but most importantly a commitment to and belief in each other," said Dr. Harry R. Jacobson, vice chancellor for health affairs, "I am honored to work in this great university family and proud to be associated with the 16,000 people who work at the medical center, who come here every day and work wonders."
