Pinnacle is the Best Place to Work in Memphis Three Years Running

October 15, 2019

Pinnacle Financial Partners is still the best place to work in Memphis, according to the Memphis Business Journal. The firm earned the top award for “Best Place to Work” in the “large companies” category of businesses with 150 or more employees. Pinnacle is now a four-time winner over the last five years, having previously taken home the top award in this category in 2018 and in the medium size category in 2017 and 2015.

“It’s humbling to keep winning this award year after year, but it also shows that our attention to culture really is ingrained in everything we do,” said Kirk Bailey, Pinnacle’s Memphis chairman. “Our people love to work here and have genuine affection for our firm and each other. It’s the only way to ensure our clients get the service they deserve – by having associates who are so happy they can’t help but pass that joy along to the people they serve.”

This award is based on research from Quantum Workplace, a leading employee engagement firm. They send anonymous surveys to employees with closed and open-ended questions on culture, camaraderie and other criteria. Average scores from these surveys determine the final rankings and awards.

Dozens of Midsouth companies are eligible, and a handful are chosen as finalists. But just one takes home the top award in each of the four size categories.

The first time Pinnacle won this award was also its first year in the Memphis market. In addition to this local honor, Pinnacle has earned more than a dozen national workplace awards, including:

Like Best Place to Work, many of these awards were also determined by associate surveys.
