Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At Primary Bank, our mission is to serve the financial needs of our communities and to deliver an exceptional banking experience. And as a community bank, our workforce should reflect the communities we serve. To that end, delivering a better client experience begins with ensuring a diverse, equitable and inclusive work experience for our staff. This shared commitment to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace will help us to achieve cultural competence. A better place to work means a better place to do business.
Primary Bank recognizes that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential not only for social responsibility, but also to maintain a competitive advantage.
We view diversity as a collection of perspectives, similarities and differences we carry with us. We value the uniqueness of everyone, and recognize that people have unique backgrounds, characteristics, experiences, beliefs, capabilities, cultures, and styles. Our goal is to foster an environment of diverse thoughts and ideas where everyone feels respected and encouraged to contribute to the Company in unique ways.
We strive to support board-level thinking about how systemic inequities in our workforce impact our ability to deliver the best possible service to our clients. Equity speaks to rewarding talent, without regard to the presence of differences such as, but not limited to, race, gender, ethnicity or age.
We strive to recognize the contributions of everyone within the organization ensuring their voices are heard. Creating an inclusive environment starts at the top. Our Board plays a key role in holding management accountable for ethical and professional conduct and a commitment to being a great place to work.
