military culture

NYCB is proud to support its employees who bring the perspectives of military personnel into our workforce. Three military veterans are part of the Human Resources Talent Acquisition Team, where they provide ongoing training and advice to all other recruiters throughout the year. Additionally, NYCB is supportive and sensitive to all employees, including new talent who may be transitioning from a military environment into a corporate workplace. Our Employee Assistance and Work / Life Support Program 24 / 7 is available to all team members, including veterans who may face challenges during their transition. At the same time, NYCB strives to maintain a diverse culture among its workforce, but this welcoming environment doesn’t pertain just to candidates and new hires. All NYCB employees are required to complete online training modules several times throughout the year to reinforce the importance of diversity and inclusion. This fosters a sense that it’s okay to speak up and suggest better ways to service the demographic groups among our customer base. This was the impetus for My Community Military Checking that is directed toward active and former military personnel who bank with us.
