Fifth Third Bank today announced that it received the Gallup Great Workplace Award during a summit at Gallup’s main campus in Omaha, Nebraska. This is the second time Fifth Third has received this honor.
The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on the most rigorous workplace research ever conducted. A panel of workplace experts evaluated the award-winning organizations, and Fifth Third Bank is among the winners because the Bank’s results demonstrate one of the most engaged and productive workforces in the world.
The Gallup Great Workplace Summit occurred May 7 through 9, 2013. During the summit, Great Workplace Award winners presented the best practices they applied to their workplace and the improved business results they achieved through building an engaged workforce.
“These award-winning organizations set a new standard for workplace excellence,” said Dr. James Harter, chief scientist of Gallup’s workplace management and wellbeing practice. “They have proven track records for improving lives along with the performance. The management tenets they practice have proven value in both thriving and struggling economies overall.”
“Employee engagement is a strategic priority for Fifth Third Bank,” said Kevin T. Kabat, vice chairman and CEO of Fifth Third Bancorp. “We are committed to employee engagement because we know that delivering financial services through an engaged workforce and an inclusive culture increases the level of confidence our customers place in us and differentiates us from our competitors.” Kabat added, “It also enhances opportunities for employees to share their voices, get involved, develop and grow.”
