Diversity & Inclusion Policy
Fortifi Bank is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Our employees are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our company’s culture, but our reputation and achievement as well.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
Our work environment is built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:
- Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees.
- Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
- Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.
- Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for the diversity.
Fortifi Bank employees are responsible for treating others with dignity and respect. All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusivity during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events. All employees are also required to complete annual diversity awareness training to enhance their diversity and inclusion knowledge and to understand their obligations under Fortifi Bank’s Diversity and Inclusion policy.
