ST. LOUIS – James Bullard, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, was named the Top Workplace Leader among large employers, according to the 2018 Top Workplaces of St. Louis, sponsored by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Bullard has been president and CEO of the St. Louis Fed since 2008. In responses to the Top Workplaces employee survey, one Bank employee said: “It is very evident that he is greatly concerned about maintaining a healthy economy for the citizens of this country.” Another employee said: “He cares about the employees, and he cares about St. Louis.”
In addition, the St. Louis Fed was ranked No. 2 in the 2018 Top Workplaces of the St. Louis region.
“The honor of being a Top Workplace is a tribute to our organization’s culture of learning, development, communications, innovation, constituent focus, diversity and inclusion, and work/life balance,” said Dave Sapenaro, St. Louis Fed first vice president.
The St. Louis Fed competed in the Large Companies category (500 or more employees). Companies that applied for the award were judged largely based on the results of the employee survey, which was taken by 73 percent of St. Louis Fed employees in April.
This year was the second time the St. Louis Fed entered the Top Workplaces of St. Louis competition. In 2016, the St. Louis Fed was ranked No. 1.
“It’s an honor to be listed among so many excellent companies in the St. Louis region,” Sapenaro said. “Our employees should feel great in knowing that they are part of one of the top workplaces in St. Louis.”
