We are committed to fostering, nurturing and maintaining a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Our team members are our most valuable asset. The individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, self-expression, uniqueness and talent that our employees invest in their work represent a significant part of not only our culture but our reputation and company’s success as well.
We embrace and welcome differences in age, sex, race, ethnicity, color, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political views, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status and other traits that make our employees unique.
Heritage Bank’s diversity initiatives are applicable, but not limited, to our practices and policies regarding recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development and training, opportunities for advancement, transfers and terminations. Our work environment is built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:
- Respectful communication and cooperation across the organization
- Teamwork and employee involvement, allowing the representation of all groups and employee perspectives
- Employer and employee contributions to the local communities to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity
“We are committed to a culture of respect. We are defined by the combined life experiences of our team and we are dedicated to fostering and cultivating an environment of diversity and inclusion. By celebrating and embracing our differences, we become stronger as an organization. We are then better able to support and represent the communities we serve.”
– Jeff Deuel, President & CEO
