Industry magazine honors CS Bank

Independent Banker magazine, the award-winning national monthly publication of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), on Friday, Dec. 1, named CS Bank as a 2023 Best Community Banks to Work For in America recipient. The $540 million-asset bank received accolades for its welcoming and uplifting approach, which fuels camaraderie and enhanced productivity.
“On behalf of our entire CS Bank family, I am thrilled to receive this amazing recognition from the Independent Community Bankers of America,” said Charlie Cross, chief executive officer for CS Bank. “Being a great place to work is the difference between a good company and a great company, as customers will never love their bank until the employees love it first. Throughout our institution, we are certainly blessed to be represented by tremendous ambassadors of our brand. A positive company culture is something we simply refuse to compromise and I am most pleased that our capable bank team is being recognized for their commitment to those values.”
CS Bank is highlighted in Independent Banker’s December issue representing community banks with between $501 million and $750 million in assets. Each nominated community bank’s full-time employees were asked to complete a workplace survey hosted by Avannis, an independent research agency. Key criteria considered in selecting this year’s honorees included: work environment, compensation, leadership, corporate culture and opportunity for recognition and advancement.
“Whether it’s fostering professional development, encouraging acts of service, or providing flexibility and support, this year’s standouts showcase the community banking difference and why this profession continues to attract compassionate and dedicated professionals motivated to helping their communities prosper,” ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey said. “We’re proud to recognize CS Bank for powering its employees to fulfill their potential and wish them continued success.”
CS Bank is a $540 million, Northwest Arkansas-based bank with seven locations throughout the area and plans for continued expansion.
