DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Commitment to Employees

We are committed to providing a respectful and inclusive workplace across our footprint. We want to provide opportunities for all employees to succeed in both their personal and professional lives.

Great Western Bank understands in order to recruit the best and the brightest it needs to offer job-related training, flexible work environments, a culture of service and the opportunity to participate in employee-led networks. Great Western Bank’s WomenConnect provides opportunities for women to develop leadership skills, build relationships and increase visibility in the community. 

Great Western Bank’s talent and leadership programs focus on attracting and supporting a diverse workforce, which is critical to success.

 "We recognize that a culture of inclusion, where diversity in background, perspective and experience is valued, will lead to long term growth and success.”
