First Reliance Bank named Best Places to Work in South Carolina for fifteenth consecutive year

First Reliance Bank was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The fifteenth annual program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group. First Reliance Bank has received the award every year since the program began.

This survey-and-awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefitting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 74 total companies. First Reliance Bank has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in South Carolina.

Since its inception in 1999, First Reliance Bank has truly become a better bank, proving again and again that “There’s More to Banking thank Money®.” “We are very proud to be named a Best Place to Work in South Carolina for the fifteenth consecutive year,” said Rick Saunders, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Reliance Bank. “To make the lives of our customers better, you have to have great people and we are committed to providing a positive and rewarding work environment that attracts, develops and retains the very best people.”

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the date, and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies will be recognized at a virtual awards ceremony on August 21, 2020, and the rankings will be published in the August 2020 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
