Austin Bank was recently selected as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2010.

The bank was recognized and honored at an awards ceremony on Jan. 28, at the Texas Association of Business 2010 Annual Conference in Austin.  This is the second year for Austin Bank to receive this award.

The Best Companies to Work For award is a collaborate project of Texas Monthly magazine, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group.

“Austin Bank is especially proud to receive this honor because it came from the input of our employees,” said Jeff Austin III, vice chairman of the Board.

“The success of our bank has been built by a wonderful team of dedicated, professional employees.  Our employees are the face of Austin Bank not only within the bank going the extra mile to serve our customers but also out in our communities helping others.  To support our employees and their vital contributions, it is our goal to provide the best possible workplace environment,” Austin said.  “Every employee is encouraged to continue learning and developing their career, and to become involved in their local community in order to make the best place to work also be the best to live and the best place to bank.”
