STUART, Fla. -- Seacoast Bank, the banking subsidiary of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (Nasdaq: SBCF) and one of the largest community banks in Florida, has been selected by Great Place To Work® and Fortune as one of the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces for WomenTM. This marks Seacoast Bank’s first appearance on the prestigious list, securing the No. 48 position among large companies (1000+ employees) this year, underscoring the bank's standing as one of the top workplaces in Florida.

To determine its Best Workplaces for Women list, Great Place To Work analyzed survey responses from over 600,000 women who work for Great Place To Work-certified companies that were eligible for the list. To be considered, a company must employ at least 50 women, have at least 20% of non-executive managers who are women, and have at least one executive who is a woman.

Seacoast Bank sets a leading example by fostering inclusivity in various ways, notably through its Women Mean Business (WMB) associate resource group. WMB is a group of Seacoast associates who serve as a valuable resource for members, fostering the bank's mission and values.

“Being recognized as one of the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces for Women is a testament to our team's remarkable contributions and dedication,” said Chuck Shaffer, CEO of Seacoast Bank. “It is a celebration of the achievements of the many women who contribute so much to Seacoast Bank and an affirmation of our commitment to creating a supportive environment for all.”

Julie Kleffel, Executive Vice President and Chief Banking Officer, added, “We’re grateful to Great Place to Work and Fortune for this recognition, and are so proud of the Seacoast Bank team members who have made our workplace so exceptional. We will continue to empower women as we remain committed to delivering exceptional banking services and creating a workplace where every individual can reach their full potential.”

The Best Workplaces for Women list is highly competitive. Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, determines rankings using its proprietary For All™ Methodology to evaluate and certify thousands of organizations. It is America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, with over 1.3 million survey responses received this year representing the experiences of more than 7.5 million employees.

Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for women regardless of job role, race, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifier. Great Place To Work analyzed the gender balance of each workplace compared to Bureau of Labor Statistics industry data. Companies are also assessed on how representation changes as women rise from front-line positions to the corporate suite and board of directors.
