CORAL GABLES, FL Amerant Bank, the largest community bank headquartered in Florida, has once again been certified as a Most Loved Workplace® backed by the research and analysis of Best Practice Institute (BPI).

Most Loved Workplaces® certify companies where employees are the happiest and most satisfied at work. Amerant became certified as a Most Loved Workplace based on its scores on the Love of Workplace Index™ which surveyed its team members on various elements around employee satisfaction and sentiment including the level of respect, collaboration, support, and sense of belonging they feel inside the company.

“At the heart of Amerant’s success is our belief that the true strength of a financial institution lies in the hands and hearts of its people,” said Mariola Sanchez, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer at Amerant. “This certification is a reflection of the passion, dedication, and commitment our team members bring to their roles every day, and we are honored to earn it once again.”

Backed by BPI, in its original research that created Most Loved Workplace criteria, more than 175 companies and more than 3,000 executives across the United States, the Middle East/Northern Africa, and Southeast Asia were surveyed. They found that productivity rises as employee sentiment increases, with 94 percent of responders saying they did three to four times more work for a company they loved and 95 percent saying they stayed at companies they loved three to four times longer. Most Loved Workplaces certification is the most valid method to determine employee experience and recognize a great workplace.
