  • Only high street bank to feature in Top 50 list
  • Metro Bank CEO included in Glassdoor’s Most Highly Rated CEOs in 2016 and 2017

Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, has been recognised by Glassdoor as a Best Place to Work in 2018, as part of the job site’s Employee’s Choice Awards.

The awards, now in their tenth year, rely solely on the feedback of current and former colleagues, who provide insight into their jobs, work environments and companies through the Glassdoor site.

Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been recognised by Glassdoor. By creating FANS of our colleagues, they’re able to make FANS of our customers, which is what the banking revolution is all about.

“As an organisation, we know how important it is to invest in and support our colleagues, whether that’s through our in-house training facility, Metro Bank University, the way we show recognition, or how we nurture talent. I’m extremely proud of everyone at Metro Bank and what we’re doing together.”

Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder added: “We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognise employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best ­­ — the employees.

“Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our tenth anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
