OKCBiz Best Places to Work – 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016
Republic has consistently been selected as one of Oklahoma’s Best Places to Work by Best Companies Group.
The Best Places to Work in Oklahoma program honors the state’s best employers. Third party surveyor Best Companies Group collected data from the businesses which entered the competition and then performed employee surveys to determine which companies had the best practices. Areas of examination include: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, and Relationship with Supervisor. There are two categories: Large Companies and Small/Medium Companies.
After being selected in the Small/Medium Companies category in 2015, our CEO Chuck Thompson said, “We are honored by the affirmation of our Bankers that this is a great place to work. We know first hand the challenges and rewards of providing an atmosphere that fosters growth, identifies individual strengths, and approaches each opportunity with a team philosophy.”
