Missouri News: Forbes Names Commerce Bank One of the Best Midsize Employers in America for the Third Consecutive Year

Kansas City, Missouri (STL.News) – Commerce Bank is one of America’s best employers.  That’s according to Forbes, which ranked the Kansas City, Missouri based bank at 13 in its 2019 America’s Best Midsize Employers List.  This marks the third consecutive year Commerce has been named to the list.  The list was developed based on comprehensive survey findings compiled by research firm Statista.

Commerce also ranked 7th among employers headquartered in Missouri.  In speaking to this recognition, John Kemper, president and chief executive officer, said, “The key to Commerce’s long-term success is the culture our team creates every day. Being honored with this award for a third consecutive year is a testament to the strong culture we have at Commerce.  Our team of associates come to work every day to help our customers focus on what matters most to them.  Above all, we are proud of our team members who continually make Commerce a great place to work.”

“We believe our people are our greatest asset and we are thrilled to be recognized by Forbes as one of the country’s best employers for the third year in a row.  Our talented, highly engaged team allows us to remain a leading employer in the financial services industry year after year.” said Sara Foster, executive vice president, talent and corporate administration.

America’s Best Employers are chosen based on an independent survey of more than 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies with at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations.  Employees are surveyed anonymously through several online panels, not through their employers.  By doing so, employees can openly state their opinion.  The evaluation was based on responses to two criteria – would employees recommend their own employers to friends and family and how do employees perceive other employers in their industry.  The respondents also gave their opinions on a series of 35 statements surrounding work-related topics on working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image regarding their current employer.  The complete list of America’s Best Midsize Employers can be found here: https://www.forbes.com/lists/best-midsize-employer
