Regional Community Banking Manager
At Seacoast, we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment that enables associates across the organization to feel a greater sense of empowerment. Seacoast supports and encourages a workplace where everyone can feel comfortable, confident, and valued, and a place where each person can bring their whole self to work. We encourage our associates to bring their authentic, original and best selves to work. One of the ways we cultivate an inclusive culture is through our Associate Resource Groups.
Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) are composed of associates who join together based on shared characteristics or life experiences. They are voluntary, associate-led groups that serve as a resource for members by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace. They are a natural extension to the Seacoast mission, vision, values, and our Four Promises.
While each ARG is unique, they all provide support, career development, networking opportunities, mentoring and - true to our fourth promise - community participation. Our ultimate goal is to encourage diversity in the workplace. Seacoast's ARGs also incorporate leadership to ensure positive ideas and changes are brought to the forefront of planning to encourage individualism and educate about what makes each of us unique rather than shying away from our differences.
