-Marine Bank & Trust was recently recognized as one of Indian River County’s “2016 Best Places to Work” by the CareerSource Research Coast. The annual program surveyed participating Indian River employers and evaluated more than 30 criteria including employee turnover, growth, employee development, internal promotions, benefits, and retirement plans to determine Indian River County's Best Places to Work. This is the Bank’s fourth win after receiving the award in 2010, 2011 and 2013.
In addition to recognizing the winners at the June 16th Awards Luncheon and Ceremony at Bent Pine Club, CareerSource Research Coast provided the participating businesses with a detailed benchmarking report documenting the results of the survey and samples of some of the best practices used in Indian River County to attract and retain its workforce. CareerSource partnered with the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce, Indian River Chamber of Commerce, and Treasure Coast Human Resources Association to bring the free program to the business community.
