“We are very proud of this recognition in South Carolina,” said C. Hunter Westbrook, President & Chief Executive Officer. “HomeTrust has always had the goal of being a high performing regional community bank, and we believe the most important strategic initiative to achieve this goal was to create a recognized best place to work with a culture that created a sense of belonging.  Happy engaged teammates serve customers better and drive higher results.”

To receive this recognition, companies across South Carolina completed a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Second, an employee survey was conducted to measure actual employee experience. Best Companies Group used the combined scores to determine the top companies in South Carolina.

HomeTrust also received a Most Loved Workplace 2024 certification by Newsweek in May.

HomeTrust also ranked in the top 100 of Forbes 15th Annual Best Banks list.

HomeTrust is focused on sustaining a workplace where everyone feels valued, supported, and inspired to achieve their best. In 2022, the Bank initiated a culture refresh, which focuses on 33 fundamental behaviors. These fundamentals are not only how we behave, but how we run the company, and are supported by tangible programs including an employee resource group, community volunteering program, and expanded employee benefits that include paid parental leave.
