INDIANAPOLIS -- November 4, 2013

First Internet Bank, a premier provider of online retail and business banking
services nationwide, today announced it has been named one of the Best Banks
to Work For. The “Best Banks”  program, which was initiated in 2013 to
identify, recognize and honor the best banks to work for in the nation, is a
project of American Banker and Best Companies Group.

“It is gratifying to be endorsed as one of the Best Banks to Work For,” said
David Becker, President and CEO. “We believe treating our employees well
translates into extraordinary service for our customers. Inclusion in this
list validates that we are doing the right things to communicate with and
empower our employees.”

In all, 35 banks achieved “Best Bank” status in this inaugural program. The 
full Best Banks to Work For list is featured in the November issue of American
Banker Magazine and is available online at AmericanBanker.com.

Determining the Best Banks to Work For involved a two-step process. The first
step consisted of evaluating each participating bank’s workplace policies,
practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately
25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys
aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with
respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately
75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top banks and
the final ranking.
