What makes us America’s Most Exciting Bank®?
It’s the people, the attitude and the energy you find here. We are passionate about practicing and living by the RIGHT values (Respect, Integrity, Guts, Having Fun and Teamwork) —keeping us focused on doing the RIGHT things everyday across our footprint and in our communities.
The excitement translates into doing right by our customers and communities. Helping you find and finance life's exciting moments with resources and solutions from people they know and trust, while helping our communities grow and thrive as active participants in the local fabric.
Over 40,000 hours of community service on the company dime.
We believe that being a committed community partner is about more than writing a check. That’s why we provide employees with paid time off to volunteer during regular business hours — all on the company dime.
In 2013, 70% of Bank employees participated in our nationally-renowned Employee Volunteer Program on over 170 company-sponsored volunteer activities across our footprint. The value of our volunteerism this past year — $1.1 million — is a lot of dimes indeed, but we believe that it’s money well spent.
