Associated Bank has been recognized as a 2019 Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune. The list recognizes the best places to work in the greater Chicago area and is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC.

The rankings are based on the responses to an anonymous survey measuring several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection.

Top Workplace award recipients were honored at the 10th annual Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces celebration on November 7. Associated Bank colleagues – Rod Murray, Chicago market president and Pat Hickey, director of wealth management – accepted the award on the bank’s behalf.

“I’m proud to represent an organization that attracts the best and brightest talent, made evident by our colleagues here in Chicago,” said Murray. “This recognition highlights our inclusive culture and we appreciate the insight this gives in order to continuously improve the workplace experience, helping us better serve our customers.”

A top workplace can be described this way: It's an organization that is successful because its employees enjoy their work, embrace their mission and feel like valued teammates. Compensation and perks are factors, but the more important components include opportunities for professional growth and being treated with respect.
