CHEVY CHASE, Md. – Forbright Bank, a nationwide full-service bank helping accelerate the transition to a sustainable and low-carbon economy, is proud to be recognized as one of American Banker’s Best Banks to Work For 2023.

American Banker sourced “Best Companies Group” an independent research firm to manage two different blind employee surveys to measure employee satisfaction across categories such as communication, happiness with role, and work environment. Overall, the average score of positive responses for the banks that made the list was 95%, compared with 89% for the institutions that didn’t make the list.
