Baker Boyer Bank was named the top "Best Companies to Work For" in the state by Seattle Business magazine for businesses with 100 to 499 employees.
The Walla Walla-based bank has eight branches in Yakima and the Tri-Cities.
Seattle Business magazine judges companies based on hiring and retention, communication, benefits, work environment, rewards and recognition, leadership, training and education, performance standards and corporate culture, said a news release.
A confidential employee survey from at least half of Baker Boyer Bank's 168 employees accounted for two-thirds of the final score in this competition.
In addition, Baker Boyer Bank achieved a spot on U.S. Banker magazine's Top 200 Community Banks list. The bank ranked 23rd out of thousands of community banks across the nation.
