Heading for a Three-Peat?

I’m proud to report that Nevada State Bank has been named one of “America’s Best-In-State Employers 2019” by Forbes Magazine. Ranked fifth in the state, we are the only financial institution listed among the top 10 employers in Nevada. The Forbes list identifies companies that employees like to work for and would recommend to others. The final list ranks the 1,430 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Find the full report here.


Our colleagues throughout the state enjoy a wide range of innovative programs and benefits. Examples include tuition reimbursement, ongoing programs to encourage wellness, and numerous employee events and team-building activities. The Diversity & Inclusion Forums we launched last year provide a great way for colleagues to share insights and points of view, while getting to know each other better.


The executive team is happy to share in the Forbes honor, but many of the initiatives listed here actually came about because of suggestions made by our colleagues. In addition to looking for ways to make Nevada State Bank a great place to work, they also constantly strive to serve our clients in the best way possible. When we developed the “It Matters Who…” marketing campaign, we did so because we recognized that it’s our people who make the bank a great place to do business. That’s one of the reasons we’ve been chosen as the Best Bank in the state for the last two years, and we’re looking for a three-peat this year.


It’s my belief that these two awards are inter-related. Employees who enjoy their workplace and their colleagues are more likely to have the kind of positive attitude that translates into great customer service. They also tend to stay with the bank, giving them a chance to develop long-term, positive relationships with the people and businesses we serve.


We believe our terrific team makes Nevada State Bank the Best Bank in Nevada, and we have already received two awards in the Best of Northern Nevada contest. Click here for details in our press release.

We are eagerly awaiting the results of the Best of Las Vegas contest. We’re looking forward to repeating again this year, because of our great team and the wonderful, loyal clients who support us by voting. 


Best regards,
