Our Commitment to Public Service
As an organization of over 1,200 employees whose views and perspectives are respected and encouraged, we are committed to investing in our people and providing opportunities for them to contribute meaningfully in the communities we serve.
Bank employees are involved with a variety of organizations such as the United Way, March of Dimes, Junior Achievement, Meals on Wheels, North Texas Food Bank, People Helping People and many more. The Houston and El Paso offices also participate in annual Money Smart Week events designed to help members of the community better manage their finances.
In the Dallas office, employees maintain a special relationship with Margaret B. Henderson Elementary School, providing tutoring, donating school supplies and participating in an Adopt-a-Family program during the holidays. We have similar partnerships with Sherman Elementary School in Houston and Fabens Independent School District in El Paso; in San Antonio, employees participate annually in the Communities in Schools Stuff the Bus School Supply Drive.
We also partner with diverse organizations and universities across the Eleventh District to identify candidates for internships and full‐time positions. In 2016, we hosted over 30 summer interns across the district and helped introduce Year Up to the Dallas community, providing young adults from urban communities with the opportunity to participate in an intense yearlong internship program. We also strengthened our partnership with INROADS, which develops and places underserved youth in business and industry, and earned a Partner in Excellence Award for our continued commitment and work with the organization.
Through all of these efforts and more, we strive to be leading citizens helping to create a vibrant economy in the communities we serve, to develop and sustain a fully engaged and diverse workforce and to be seen as a premier place of employment that offers engaging work in service to the public.
