Pinnacle Financial Partners is One of America's Best Workplaces for Women

October 30, 2018

Pinnacle Financial Partners is two-for-two in making FORTUNE magazine’s list of the Best Workplaces for Women. The firm earned the No. 12 spot on the list for 2018, its second year in a row to be ranked.

“We built our company, in part, on the value of fairness,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “We keep fairness as a focus in big ways, like our company-wide incentive plan, and in the small, everyday decisions that make our associates love coming to work. We don’t care who you are or where you come from or what your background is. We just want the best financial professionals out there, and we’ve built a culture that draws them to us in droves.”

Of Pinnacle’s more than 2,200 associates, 68 percent are women. And of 310 managers and company leaders, nearly half – 46 percent – are women.

Companies on the list of Best Workplaces for Women stand out for creating great cultures and workplaces for all, regardless of gender. This list is compiled by FORTUNE and Great Place to Work® based on thousands of anonymous surveys sent to employees at eligible companies. The surveys evaluate more than 50 factors, including the trustworthiness of leadership, the respect with which they are treated, fairness in workplace decisions and camaraderie among the team. Final determinations for the list’s rankings are based on equity of experience among female employees as compared to others on the team, no matter who they are or what job role they serve.

“Empowering women in the workplace isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s a business imperative,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These winning organizations are leading the way in closing the employee experience gender gap, proving that all companies, regardless of their industry size or complexity, can be great workplaces for women.”

Earlier this year, Pinnacle was named the No. 22 Best Company to Work For in the country, the No. 3 Best Company to Work for in Financial Services, a Best Workplace for Millennials and one of American Banker’s Best Banks to Work For.
