ICBA has adopted a flexible approach to work that will support in-office collaboration opportunities in the workspace while also supporting work successfully and productively at home. To support employees in our hybrid environment we provide a new hire Home Office stipend and a monthly Home Office stipend for all full-time employees.
Relationships and connection are what transform a good job into a fantastic one. ICBA hosts a variety of opportunities to engage with your colleagues. Our offices provide staff events and clubs for those with shared interests to socialize and encourage one another.
Our employees show their commitment as engaged citizens by giving their time, talents, and expertise to support a wide range of causes. Our employees use their interests and passion to assist and connect communities, lives, and families. We support these relationships and our staff by offering up to eight hours of paid volunteer time off per calendar year because we see their potential to change the world.
I feel so fortunate to work at ICBA. I am challenged but given the support and tools to succeed. There is a positive work environment that promotes work-life balance and community engagement.
So many perks- baseball games, employee outings, a gorgeous office, coffee bar, Summer Fridays and paid volunteer time but, more importantly the community bankers, colleagues and the mission.
Manager, Political Programs
At ICBA the culture is very inclusive and I feel that the people around me actually listen to the ideas that I recommend. I may not always have the best ideas but I at least feel like I am being heard. And also my team is very supportive which makes “work” not really feel like “work” we are always having a good time even through stressful times.
Helpdesk and System Administrator, Information Technology
ICBA is buzzing with energy and innovative thinkers and every day is different. Everyone on the team is kind, growth-oriented and passionate about what they do. ICBA is a fantastic place for professionals — especially driven self-starters — to spread their wings and push forward creative ideas.
