(“MVB Financial”) (NASDAQ: MVBF) (collectively “MVB”), has been named one of American Banker Magazine’s “Best Banks to Work For in 2021.” MVB placed number 21 among the 90 U.S. banks in the ranking, which assesses employee satisfaction in areas including corporate culture and communications, training and development opportunities and pay and benefits.

“Through our strategic Culture Initiative, culture has become MVB’s secret sauce and part of our corporate DNA, mindset and behavior of Team MVB.

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.

The selection of the Best Banks to Work For is a two-step process managed by Best Companies Group. 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 rankings.
