Arvest Bank Named Among ‘Best Employers for Women’ by Forbes

Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of “America’s Best Employers for Women.”

The honor comes after Arvest was named one of “America’s Best Large Employers” in May, the second consecutive year it has received that honor. For the more recent list, Forbes employed its market research partner, Statista, to survey 40,000 Americans – including 25,000 women – working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions. Respondents were first asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. 

Statista then asked female respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. These respondents also were asked to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list ranks the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and boast the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks.

“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes for the second time since May when it comes to maintaining a culture that appeals to and supports all of our associates,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “Knowing those who responded to this latest survey think so highly of Arvest for things like diversity and pay equity is very rewarding. It reinforces our commitment to welcoming talent from different backgrounds and with different perspectives.”

Arvest is the only Arkansas-based company included on the list.
