Peapack-Gladstone Bank Earns 2021 Best Banks to Work For Recognition

Bedminster, NJ - (NewMediaWire) - December 1, 2021 - For the fourth year in a row, Peapack-Gladstone Bank (NASDAQ Global Select Market: PGC) has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2021 by American Banker. 

The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the November issue of American Banker Magazine.

“This list calls attention to institutions that have gone above and beyond to invest in employees' personal and professional growth,” said Bonnie McGeer, executive editor of American Banker. 

Determining the Best Banks to Work For is a two-step process. The first step involves an evaluation of participating companies’ workplace policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to directly assess the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking. 

Overall, 90 banks earned a spot on the list this year.

“I’m so proud that we continued to receive this acknowledgement each year because it is based on employee feedback,” said Doug Kennedy, president and chief executive officer of Peapack-Gladstone Bank.  He continued, “The fact that our employees consider working here fulfilling, and they consider each other family is amazing.  Even through the pandemic we were able to keep our culture alive and thriving.”

Best Companies Group manages the registration and survey process and also analyzes the data to determine the final ranking.  

The program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks, and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the United States. For more information on eligibility or other questions related to the Best Banks to Work For program, visit
