Forbes Names Comerica to 2022 Best Employers by State, Best Employers for Women Listings

DALLAS, Sept. 23, 2022 – Forbes has named Comerica Bank to its 2022 lists of Best Employers by State and Best Employers for Women.

“We are honored to receive these recognitions that underline our commitment to creating a workplace where inclusion and belonging is paramount,” said Nate Bennett, Chief Diversity Officer. “We understand that through diversity, equity and inclusion, we can continue to drive change and help our colleagues, customers and communities be successful.”

Comerica ranked 18th among potential employers in Michigan, making it the third-highest banking and financial services company in the state.

Comerica has held a strong presence in Michigan, dating back to its Detroit founding in 1849. It remains the largest bank employer in metro Detroit and has approximately 4,500 employees statewide.

Forbes and Statista assembled the rankings after surveying 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees from 25 various industries. Direct recommendations, combined with indirect recommendations from workers in selected states factored into the rankings.

For the second consecutive year, Comerica also earned a spot on Forbes’ Best Employers for Women list, ranking 239th of 400 employers from across the country – 18th among banking and financial services employers.

The survey, compiled by Statista, sampled approximately 50,000 U.S. employees, 30,000 of which were women, working for companies with at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The evaluation focused on four different criteria that included: direct recommendations – work topics in general; direct recommendations – topics relevant for women in particular; indirect recommendations; and diversity among top executives / board.
