Community Matters in Lincoln, NE

By: Macala Hoffschneider, Senior Retail Manager

Great Western Bank’s culture empowers its employees throughout its nine-state footprint to be community stewards. Within the organization, Great Western Bank employees flex their civic muscles by volunteering on community boards, sponsoring and coaching youth organizations, and championing a variety of community events.

In the Lincoln, Nebraska market, the goal is to engage all staff to give of their time and talent. The concept has been simple—if one person giving in their community can make an impact, what would the contributions of 20 employees look like? And what if that number were 100?

Each month Lincoln’s brigade of 87 strong, give back to the community through school supply drives, random acts of kindness days, coat and diaper drives and more! Employees hope these events are only a springboard to future plans.
