Impacting Business Through Social Responsibility
February 26, 2018|By Angelica Palm, Marketing Director
We believe in the value of strong, authentic corporate citizenship and the positive impact it can have on San Antonio. Social responsibility is an integral part of our foundational values because we believe in serving our community and helping San Antonio grow for generations to come. Time and again, I’ve seen our team tirelessly volunteer to help our clients and others. It’s invaluable to have businesses not only serve the community, but also to invest in a variety of areas as our city grows. Our momentum in San Antonio is growing and we are enthused to embrace and empower the future.
Empowering others to achieve their mission is not only fruitful, it is instrumental in continuing our culture of growth in our employees. According to a survey by Deloitte, 70% of millennials said that a company’s commitment to the community is an influence on their decision to work there. Our culture at The Bank of San Antonio is heightened by the generosity and passion to help others, which stems across all our departments and disciplines.
Social responsibility can come in different forms — leading a nonprofit, volunteering in the community or providing support to local charities and educational initiatives. Our community relations are one of the many reasons why I am proud to be a part of The Bank of San Antonio team.
