Regions Bank Named 2016 Gallup Great Workplace Award Winner

In receiving honor for second straight year, Regions’ ratio of engaged employees is more than 21 times higher than the international average.

For the second consecutive year, Regions has received the Gallup Great Workplace Award.

The award was created to recognize organizations with an extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures. The 2016 Gallup Great Workplace Awards will be presented at the upcoming Spring Summit in Omaha, Nebraska May 10 through 12.

The 2016 winners had to average a ratio of 14 engaged employees to one actively disengaged employee — seven times higher than the U.S. average, according to Gallup. The ratio of the 2016 winners is more than 21 times what Gallup found through polling organizations in 142 countries.

This year, the award was given to 35 organizations from a variety of industries.

“I am very pleased that, for the second year in a row, Regions has received the Gallup Great Workplace Award,” said Grayson Hall, Chairman, President and CEO of Regions. “One of our strategic priorities is to ‘Build the Best Team,’ and a key driver to achieve this goal is to create a culture of engagement at Regions.

In fact, since 2012 our leaders and associates have worked to improve associate and team engagement and to strengthen our culture at Regions, and we chose Gallup as our partner on this journey.”

The Gallup Great Workplace Award signifies the most engaged and productive companies in the world, and rewards organizations for their ability to create engaged workplaces. The positive effects of engagement stretch far beyond simple perks or benefits — they help drive real business outcomes.

Winning a Gallup Great Workplace Awards starts with a comprehensive employee engagement measurement and analysis. While most other workplace awards are based on studies of only a small sample size of a company’s staff, Gallup surveys every associate in an organization — allowing all voices to be heard. The Gallup survey consists of 12 simple, powerful items proven to measure what matters, and data can be used by managers to develop stronger teams.

“This award is a reflection that our associates truly get it. They realize our strength and success is built on how much each of us contributes individually,” said Sue Hengel, head of Learning and Development at Regions.
