Austin Bank named ‘One of the 2021 Best Companies to Work for in Texas’

Austin Bank was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Companies to Work for in Texas.

The Bank was recognized and honored on Monday, October 4 at the Texas Association of Business awards presentation held in Austin.  This is the thirteenth consecutive year for Austin Bank to receive this honor.

The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process (25 percent employer questionnaire/75 percent employee feedback) to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas.  The 2021 list is comprised of 100 companies which benefit the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.  Austin Bank ranked #27 in the medium sized company category.

“Austin Bank is especially proud to receive this honor because it came from the input of our employees,” said Jeff Austin III, Vice Chairman of the Board.

“The success of our Bank has been built by a wonderful team of dedicated, professional employees.  Our employees are the face of Austin Bank not only within the Bank, going the extra mile to serve our customers, but also out in our communities helping others.  To support our employees and their vital contributions, it is our goal to provide the best possible workplace environment,” said Austin.  “Every employee is encouraged to continue learning and developing their career; and to become involved in their local community in order to make the best place to work also the best to live and the best place to bank.”

Austin Bank is a community bank with $2.5 billion in assets. Headquartered in Jacksonville, Texas, Austin Bank serves the needs of families and businesses with 487 employees in 35 locations, 25 cities and 13 counties.  During 2020, Austin Bank employees gave countless hours of volunteer service, and the Bank contributed over $500,000 in direct support of local education, the arts, literacy, health and housing needs.  Austin Bank is locally owned and operated by the Austin Family who is celebrating 112 years of serving the banking industry.

  1. I can personally testify that Austin Bank is indeed a terrific employer that takes care of its employees as well as the communities it serves. The Austin family members are extremely fine people that know the banking business and how to treat people the right way. That is why they have been in business for over 114 years. At a time where community banks are being gobbled up by “big banks” that focus on profits to the detriment of the communities they serve, Austin Bank is a welcome asset to Cleveland and Liberty County.
