First Bank & Trust, a division of HTLF Bank is unique and so are you.
We all come from diverse backgrounds and experiences that help shape our company values. Our values are rooted in the belief that respect, equity and inclusiveness make us stronger together. The variety of experiences and lifestyles we bring to work every day provides insights that help us better understand each other and our customers.
Banking is a business based on people, trust and relationships. We take that a step further, forging a mission towards strengthening our communities and enriching the lives around us. By seeking the input of everyone’s voice, we are better able to actively contribute to the vitality of the communities where we work and live.
Our employees, customers and communities benefit from our inclusive culture. But diversity, equity and inclusion are a journey, not a destination. That’s why we are advancing several key DEI initiatives via investment in:
- Our Chief DEI Officer Role
- Employee Listening Sessions
- Unconscious Bias Training for Leadership
- Quarterly DEI Speaker Series
- Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs)
- Recruitment Focus and Network
