Bank earns recognition as one of the top companies in the South to meet employee needs

Charleston, S.C. – U.S. News & World Report has named United Bank one of the 2024-2025 Best Companies to Work For. Out of 3,000 publicly traded companies that were considered, United was rated among the top companies in the South on factors contributing to job seekers’ decision-making when choosing a workplace that best meets their needs.

“At United, we have long believed that our employees are our greatest asset,” said Richard M. Adams, Jr., CEO, United Bankshares. “When our team members thrive, so do our customers, and so does our business. We are committed to maintaining a strong, employee-focused company culture and are humbled to receive this recognition.”

U.S. News’ ratings reflect the evolving sentiments that factor into employee decision-making when choosing the “best” company to work for. The ratings then analyze that sentiment against other factors, including quality of pay and benefits, work-life balance and flexibility, job and company stability, physical and psychological comfort, belongingness and esteem, and career opportunities and professional development.

United’s commitment to team members is guided by the Company’s core values of integrity, hard work, teamwork, and caring. Its ability to achieve success is rooted in its dedication to fostering an inclusive, engaging culture. Employees from entry-level to management are empowered to reach their full potential and make a difference, contributing to a culture that is entrepreneurial, efficient, relationship-based, and service-oriented. For 185 years, these leading principles have helped United grow from a single-office bank to a premier regional banking company.
