UNION CITY, TN. When Donna Walker began her career in banking at what was formerly Old & Third National Bank forty years ago, banking looked a little different than it does today. Over the years, she's seen debit cards, direct deposits, ATM machines, mobile banking, Netteller and computers all change the way consumers bank, but her love for the job has only grown.

"Back in the day, most things were done by hand, and records were kept on paper," Donna says. "Customers had to come to the bank to make deposits and get cash. We were always extremely busy."

First Citizens National Bank RANKS #19 IN BEST BANKS TO WORK FOR IN U.S.

The program, which was initiated in 2013 to identify, recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation, is aproject of American Banker and Best Companies Group. In all, 75 banks achieved "Best Bank" status in this fifth year for the program.

Workforce is a critical issue everywhere and communities are being creative in solving real challenges with impact. The Obion County (TN) Joint Economic Development Council is addressing their leading workforce challenge head-on. I had the opportunity to visit with Lindsay Frilling, President, about their initiative.

Tell me about the situation driving this initiative.
Over the last 5 years, we've had 1,200 new jobs announced. We initially thought we would create a campaign to recruit talent to move to Obion County. We asked employers to become involved in the talent recruitment campaign. Although they were interested and supportive, what happened instead they shared critical workforce issues. We didn't fully understand the extent of challenges until we intentionally explored. Limited childcare availability was a major issue.
