SunTrust believes it takes a well-rounded combination of people and ideas to foster creativity and a more competitive company. That’s why we’re committed to fostering an inclusive environment where we acknowledge, respect and employ all dimensions of diversity and where all teammates have the opportunity to maximize their contributions to our clients and communities.
At SunTrust, creating a culture of inclusion means:
Here are just a few ways SunTrust promotes a diverse and inclusive environment:
We have an inclusive corporate culture.
The SunTrust Executive Inclusion Committee provides leadership to ensure inclusion is woven into the business strategy. The Enterprise Inclusion Council and eight teammate networks represent "inclusion in action" where teammates carry out strategies to sustain an inclusive corporate culture.
We nurture business growth in our communities.
We identify lending, investment and partnership opportunities with companies in our communities which provide business growth and economic expansion.
We give back to our communities.
SunTrust teammates are encouraged to volunteer with community service organizations and schools to build stronger communities.
We've received public recognition for promoting inclusion.
Black Enterprise Magazine, Atlanta Business Journal, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities, Spelman College, Human Rights Campaign, Diversity Journal and the Florida Diversity Council have recognized SunTrust for our inclusive efforts.
One element of creating an inclusive environment involves developing and offering products and services that address the needs of everyone, including groups that have historically been underserved by the financial services industry.
We choose suppliers based on product quality, service, price and overall value. At the same time, we’re also committed to bringing diverse suppliers into our circle of business partners. We strongly encourage minority-, women-, LGBT-, veteran-, disabled-owned and small businesses to compete for our business. If you are interested in becoming a SunTrust supplier, please visit our Supplier Registration page.
We believe that employing a workforce that reflects the markets and communities we serve has been one of the keys to our success. We have a rich history of local decision making by our bankers. They know their customers and communities, including how to deliver the right products and services to our clients. Women and minorities are represented in senior management positions, the corporate Board of Directors and our local community boards.
Fostering inclusion is about more than just hiring people from different groups. It’s about everyone sharing ideas, respecting differences and achieving goals together.
Companies looking to compete on differentiation can do so in two ways. This chapter explains what it takes for a business to set itself apart, including methods for identifying and highlighting unique features.
