Pinnacle Remains One of the Nation's Best Workplaces for Women

Firm makes the list for the sixth time

October 25, 2023

Pinnacle Financial Partners is once again in the pages of FORTUNE Magazine as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces for Women, earning the No. 6 spot on the latest list compiled by Great Place to Work®. The firm ranks among the best in the nation for the way women associates view their experience in terms of fairness and equity. This is Pinnacle’s sixth appearance on the list, having previously earned this distinction last year and in 2021, 2020, 2018 and 2017.

“It’s a great feeling to know that our company is a place where women are treated equitably and feel like they have opportunities to excel,” said Summer Yeiser Pinnacle’s director of associate and client experience. “Our company is built on a philosophy of creating great experiences for people, and that starts with our associates. Thanks to our top tier culture and intentional work on recruiting and leadership development, the role of women across job titles at Pinnacle has consistently increased.”

To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of more than 600,000 women who work for Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies that employ at least 50 women. Companies must also have least 20 percent of non-executive managers who are women and at least one senior executive who’s a woman.

“We build a culture of caring, so every individual is seen and feels a sense of belonging in our Pinnacle family,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “With this foundation, we built an engaging culture that leads to high retention rates, low levels of turnover and a powerful tool for attracting top talent. We put associates first because we know that when they’re happy, they’ll make our clients even happier. Having our efforts recognized in our markets and across the nation show that we’re doing it right.”

The Best Workplaces for Women list is highly competitive. It’s the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly women say they’re treated in the workplace. Great Place to Work measures the differences in women’s survey responses with those of their peers and assesses the impact of demographics and roles on the quality and consistency of women’s experiences.

Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, determines its lists using its proprietary For All™ methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations in America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, based on more than 1.1 million survey responses and data from companies representing more than 7 million employees this year alone.
