RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that it has been named one of the Forbes America’s Best Employers for 2018 in the Banking and Financial Services sector. This marks the second time that Lincoln Financial has achieved recognition on the list, which spotlights the top 500 large U.S. companies across 25 different industries.

“Our success is underpinned by our exceptional employees whose contributions make Lincoln Financial a market leader,” said Dennis R. Glass, president and CEO, Lincoln Financial Group. “With the best talent in the industry, we strive to ensure our employees feel valued, supported and recognized throughout every step of their careers here. We are honored to receive this recognition, which is made even more special because it reflects our employees’ honest and very complimentary perceptions of us.”

Almost 30,000 employees at U.S. companies with at least 1,000 people were surveyed for the America's Best Employers List. Willingness to recommend one’s own employer was considered to be one of the most important aspects of the survey.

“Lincoln is deeply committed to maintaining a positive, professional culture, rewarding our employees and investing in their future,” said Lisa M. Buckingham, chief human resources officer and head of Brand and Enterprise Communications. “We truly believe that our employees are our greatest asset and, each and every day, they do an amazing job helping all Americans protect the ones they love. I’m so incredibly proud of who we are as a company. I’d like to thank our employees for their many accomplishments that have helped distinguish us from our peers—this award is for you!”

Lincoln Financial’s commitment to employees is further evidenced by its other recent awards like the Forbes Best Employers for Diversity for 2018, a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” and a perfect score on the 2017 Disability Equality Index®. Additionally, Lincoln Financial is a leader in corporate social responsibility. More details on the benefits of working at Lincoln Financial can be found on their careers website.

About the Forbes America’s Best Employers List Methodology

This survey was independently conducted through global digital data collection partners and recruited respondents from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation. Participation was voluntary and anonymous. In addition to detailed questions about working conditions, employees were asked to determine how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else, as well as their feelings about other employers in their respective industries. The mix of respondents (gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American employees. In total, 1,000 employers have been awarded with 500 being large (over 5,000 employees) and 500 being mid-size.
