OMB is proud to announce that it was recently named a Best-in-Class Employer by Illinois-based consulting services firm Gallagher. OMB participated in Gallagher’s 2022 U.S. Benefits Strategy & Benchmarking Survey and was identified as an organization that excelled in optimizing employee and organizational wellbeing.

OMB was recognized for its comprehensive framework for strategically investing in benefits, compensation and employee communication to support the health, financial security and career growth of its employees at a sustainable cost structure. Designations like Gallagher’s Best-in-Class Employer help current and potential employees understand and appreciate an organization’s workplace culture and people strategy, two important differentiators as employers compete for talent.

“OMB has seen exceptional growth the past several years, not just in banking terms like loans and deposits, but in terms of our talent,” said Sheryl Asher, senior vice president of human resources. “One of the areas of emphasis for our Executive Management team and Board of Directors has been elevating our team members to a point where they are thriving alongside the bank. We are honored and thrilled by this recognition, which serves as a direct reflection of our teammates and the bank’s core values that help make OMB such a wonderful place to work.”

A U.S. Best-in-Class Employer, OMB was assigned points based on its relative performance in:

  • Planning horizons for the benefits and compensation strategies
  • Extent of their wellbeing strategy
  • Turnover rate for full-time equivalents (FTEs)
  • Completion of a workforce engagement survey
  • Use of an HR technology strategy and its level of sophistication
  • Difference in healthcare costs over the prior year
  • Use of a communication strategy

“OMB was recognized as a U.S. Best-in-Class Employer because of how they approach organizational priorities with a long-term outlook; provide high-quality, high-value benefits; and build and solidify a strong organizational culture through their communications,” said William F. Ziebell, CEO of Gallagher's Benefits & HR Consulting Division. “In doing so, OMB invests in the whole employee by providing distinct and relevant wellbeing resources that will attract and retain talent.”
