Associated Bank has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.


Associated Bank strives to create great colleague experiences and works to provide colleagues the opportunity to succeed and play an active role in shaping the culture.


“Our annual workplace survey—with industry-leading 91% colleague participation—influences the tools and programs we offer to help colleagues be successful both professionally and personally,” said John Utz, executive vice president, head of corporate banking and Milwaukee market president, Associated Bank. “This includes specialized development programs for both specific career paths and leadership advancement, as well as individual development plans for colleagues. In 2022, approximately one in four colleagues advanced their careers through internal promotions or lateral moves.”


“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
