Florida Trend has listed Capital City Bank among its 2017 “Best Companies to Work For in Florida.” Out of the 100 small, medium and large companies recognized, Capital City Bank ranked No. 26 in the “Large Companies” category. Within this category, Capital City Bank is the only bank to be named. The 2017 issue is the ninth annual “Best Companies” edition, and the sixth year that Capital City Bank has participated.

“Capital City Bank associates are what set us apart,” said Bill Smith, Capital City Bank Group chairman, president and CEO. “They are treated like family and that is evident in the average length of tenure. I’m proud of our team of bankers and honored to be recognized for the sixth consecutive year.”

The only statewide employer recognition program, the annual “Best Companies to Work For” list was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group. Participating companies underwent an exhaustive evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

In order to be considered for the “Best Companies” list, the firm must be a publicly or privately held for-profit or not-for-profit business. The entity must have been in business a minimum of one year, have a facility in the state of Florida and a minimum of 15 full or part-time employees in the state.
