"At our founding, we set out to be the best place to work because we believed the key to a successful business is a happy and excited workforce," said Terry Turner, Pinnacle's president and CEO. "Our associates have carried that spirit forward for more than 23 years, making Pinnacle a magnet for the best financial professionals in the Southeast. When people feel like an expendable commodity at big bureaucratic institutions, they'll gladly leave that atmosphere to embrace our culture of belonging and togetherness so they can spread that joy to their clients. That's been the cornerstone of our growth across the region and the reason we can deliver an unmatched associate and client experience."

Great Place to Work selects winners based, in part, on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, sexual orientation, work status or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is. In the last year, the organization surveyed companies employing more than 8.2 million people in the U.S. and received more than 1.3 million responses. It found that 98 percent of Pinnacle's associates said the firm is a great place to work and the same percentage said they are proud to work here. Many more such stats, including survey data on fairness and inclusivity, are available in Pinnacle's 2023 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

"Treating people well is the right thing to do because everyone deserves a great place to work," Turner said. "We don't chase these awards for the glory. We do it to help show people a better way to build a successful business from the inside out."

Comments from the firm's own anonymous work environment survey included:

  • "I came here through three mergers, and I am so grateful that Pinnacle is where I landed. I have never in my 39 years of banking worked for a place that truly cares so much about their employees. My team is my family!"
  • "Pinnacle is the best place I have ever worked. I feel like the firm truly cares about its employees and strives to include all of us in the success of the firm. Our team truly cares about each other. We gather around each other in hard times and good times. We are family."
  • "Pinnacle is a very inclusive organization. Leadership is transparent with associates, and everyone is a shareholder from the date of hiring. This creates an environment where everyone is working together for a common goal."
  • "Never has been and never will be a better company to work for."

Pinnacle Financial Partners provides a full range of banking, investment, trust, mortgage and insurance products and services designed for businesses and their owners and individuals interested in a comprehensive relationship with their financial institution.
