Company Respect

We show respect and ensure that all voices are heard and ideas are valued throughout the company by providing employees with opportunities to share feedback through our annual employee engagement survey and subsequent action plans which allow employees and their leaders to identify and work on areas of opportunity as well as continue the things we do well. In addition, our CEO conducts skip-level meetings to get honest feedback from employees. In 2023, we conducted a corporate wide, “Kill a Stupid Rule” contest, which allowed employees to submit ideas and share their perspectives on what we can do to streamline processes for our customers and employees to make HTB a more efficient place to bank and work while maintaining appropriate compliance, safety, and quality. Submissions could be for something that we needed to stop completely or change/update to make it more efficient. A cross-departmental committee was formed to review and evaluate submissions to roll up the top submissions to the Executive Management Team for selecting the contest winners which was followed by planning for the implementation of solutions for the winning submissions.
