National Cooperative Bank (NCB) has announced that it has been awarded as number two on the large companies list for the 2020 Best Employers in Ohio. The annual list of the Best Employers in Ohio was created by Crain’s Cleveland Business and Best Companies Group.

“We are very proud to be presented with this prestigious award,” said Michelle Ward, NCB human resources manager. “This award is based on autonomy of individual employee surveys and NCB’s strong culture. I am honored to work with such wonderful colleagues and proud that NCB has been recognized by this statewide award since 2015 to present.”
