ST. LOUIS - First Mid Bancshares, Inc. (First Mid) is proud to announce they have earned a Greater St. Louis Top Workplaces 2024 award from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces is an annual recognition program celebrating companies in the St. Louis metro area that excel in employee satisfaction and engagement. To qualify for the award, companies must have a significant presence in the greater St. Louis region, employ a minimum number of employees, and meet an employee response rate to the survey. The survey responses are then evaluated, and the winners are determined based on the employees’ feedback.

“Our people are at the heart of our success,” says Joe Dively, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at First Mid. “As we continually cultivate a strong culture that attracts and retains top talent who are engaged and invested in their own success and the success of our company, our goal is to continue fostering a workplace that encourages engagement, diversity, development, and the well-being of each member of our team.
