Our Roadmap to Diversity
and Inclusion: iBelong

iBelong is our company-wide Diversity and Inclusion plan to help us build on and strengthen our internal and external recruiting efforts, our internal policies, employee learning and career development, talent assessment, succession planning, and procurement and supplier diversity.

Through iBelong, we’ve taken some important steps, yet many more milestones lie ahead. In fact, our journey towards greater diversity and inclusion never really ends. It’s a journey we are committed to because diversity and inclusion is what keeps Investors Bank so strong.


 


Talent & Diversity

We have a responsibility to weave diversity and inclusion into everything we do—the people we hire and promote, the tone we set in our workplace, and the suppliers with whom we choose to do business. Investors Bank is comprised of some 1,800 employees who work in our headquarters, commercial lending group, and more than 150 retail branches. Diversity and inclusion is represented at all levels, across all locations.
 


Targeted Recruiting

Our recruiting pools comprise people from varied backgrounds and experiences to reflect the customers and communities we serve. Our diversity-specific recruiting includes listing career opportunities on over 100 job boards tied to diversity, veteran and disability organizations and partnering with numerous organizations to help attract minority candidates at Career Fairs and Networking Workshops. In addition, Investors provides work study opportunities for inner city youth and engages in outreach efforts with local Colleges and Universities to attract diverse groups of students for the Bank’s Summer Internship Program.
 


Career Development and Retention

At Investors Bank, career development and retention are important priorities and we promote from within wherever possible. In 2019, close to 39% of our roles were filled internally. We want every employee to realize his or her fullest potential and we encourage our people to explore their interests and abilities, plan career goals, and create development plans to achieve those goals.
 


Learning and Career Development

We offer a thoughtful and comprehensive suite of learning solutions and development resources to support our employees’ efforts to grow their careers at Investors Bank. Our goal is to cultivate a growth mindset, where every employee is encouraged to become life-long learners and through collaboration, inspire each other to achieve exceptional outcomes. Some of the offerings to our employees include:
  • Leadership Training Courses
  • Personal and Professional Development Courses
  • Mentorship Program
  • Diversity Workshops


Diversity and Inclusion Council
and Resource Groups

Investors Bank has introduced a Diversity and Inclusion Council. The Council is an overarching group of leaders from our organization who create and execute on the plans to drive a diversity and inclusion strategy and develop the framework for implementing and impacting initiatives, programs, policies, and processes. They will also help shape other Employee Resource Groups to address the specific needs of diverse populations within our organization and markets.
 

We have an established Employee Resource Group, the Women’s Leadership Council, which was founded in 2016. This Group encourages professional development through exchanging ideas as well as promoting and influencing women’s careers through networking events, leadership and communications programs, coaching and mentoring, and wellness programs.
 

Investors Bank and its subsidiaries are Equal Opportunity Employers and take pride in maintaining a diverse environment. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital or protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
