Employees help nonprofits and other community organizations by serving on boards and by donating their time and talents. These roles allow employees a safe environment to develop important leadership skills that help make them better team members. Community service is valued by First Interstate; as such, employees participate in both bank-organized and individual volunteering efforts.
As a company, we are only as strong as the communities we serve. First Interstate operates on the basic belief that being a good neighbor is what socially-responsible corporate citizenship is all about.
Our commitment starts with our desire to support and foster growth in the local business economy. In addition, we recognize that the quality of life in a community is inherently tied to its physical, spiritual, and intellectual well-being. Our employees are actively involved in their communities, using their skills and energies to make them better places to live and work. Here are just a few examples of the way we give back to the places we call home.
