People Magazine and Great Place to Work Name Pinnacle One of 2017's "50 Companies That Care"

March 29, 2017

Pinnacle Financial Partners has earned a place on People’s inaugural “50 Companies That Care” list, jointly chosen by People and Great Place to Work. This marks the third national workplace award the firm has won this year and the 10th in its history.

Pinnacle came in No. 20 on the list, which was based on more than 368,000 surveys from individuals employed by U.S. businesses across a range of industries. The 2017 “50 Companies That Care” were also selected based on the generosity of their benefits and charitable work, as well as personal accounts of the impact these organizations have made on the lives of their employees.

“When I think about everyone who works at Pinnacle, I’m most proud of the fact that we treat each other like family,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “Our associates and the communities we serve appreciate that we continue to maintain a caring work environment as we grow.”

The Companies That Care list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and its partner publications based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
