STUART, Fla., July 2, 2021 -- Seacoast Bank is proud to be named one of the Orlando Business Journal's 2021 Best Places to Work. This recognition validates Seacoast’s commitment to our employees’ well-being, as well as our numerous diversity and inclusion initiatives. We have supported our associates throughout the pandemic and our commitment to inclusion runs through every level of our organization.
Seacoast was also recently recognized as part of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. Seacoast is one of 767 companies – spanning nearly every industry and geography – earning a top score of 100%.
“We’re committed to maintaining a supportive culture for all our employees – not to win awards or gain recognition, but because it’s the right thing to do,” said Julie Kleffel, chief banking officer. “At Seacoast, we strive to create an atmosphere where associates feel comfortable and confident bringing their whole self to work, and these recognitions are gratifying confirmations that we are in fact creating a positive environment for all of our employees.”
“The workplace culture at Seacoast is one of the reasons I chose to join the company last year,” said Dan Hilken, who became commercial banking regional president for Central Florida at the end of 2020. “It’s been everything I hoped for, and I look forward to doing my part to support efforts to maintain our reputation as a great place to work.”
Companies that participate in the Orlando Business Journal's Best Places to Work competition are judged based on the results of an employee survey administered by Quantum Workplace. The full list of honorees and their rankings will be revealed in the Orlando Business Journal's Aug. 26, 2021, weekly edition, as well as online.
