Open the door on a promising career for a BankWork$ student
I had the honor of being hired by a bank sponsor of this life-changing program. Before I hit my six-month mark, I was awarded ‘Teller of the Month,’ and before my first anniversary, I was promoted to Lead Teller. I've regularly been among the top three in my district for sales and I see endless opportunities for my career. But most important, my children and I are finally safe, free and happy.Ruby Bates, Seattle BankWork$ graduate from 2012 working at Key Bank
We developed BankWork$ to open a door for young people from low income and minority communities to help them find and succeed in well-paying jobs that can lead to a lasting career. Every successful person has been helped by someone who opened a door for him or her at some point in their career. We wanted to do that for people who would not otherwise have found their way into banking. And at the same time we are providing our partner banks with well-trained and highly qualified candidates who happen to be from underserved communities.Les Biller, Founder, BankWork$ and Former COO, Wells Fargo
Founding Trustee, The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation
Having a workforce that reflects the communities we serve is important for Wells Fargo and for the financial services industry as a whole. Our goal is to have Wells Fargo team members that exceed our customers’ expectations. That translates into highly trained team members that reflects the community where they live and work and deliver an excellent customer experience, resulting in helping their customers succeed financially. Our investment in BankWork$ is an investment that helps realize that goal.John Sotoodeh, EVP, Regional Banking Executive –Southwest Region, Wells Fargo
Bank of America looks for a variety of ways to build a pipeline of diverse talent.
