Measurement tool helps community banks attract and retain top talent

Washington, D.C. (Feb. 28, 2022) —The Independent Community Bankers of America today announced its expanded relationship with Preferred Service Provider Jack Henry & Associates to include its Performance Scorecard tool, which helps community banks streamline and automate their incentive compensation system, improving tracking and creating timely performance updates at the individual, department, and enterprise level.

“Community banks need a reliable way to measure and reward performance to improve employee satisfaction, motivation, and recruitment in today’s tight labor market,” ICBA Senior Executive Vice President of Community Bank Solutions Kevin Tweddle said. “ICBA is proud to offer this solution from a leading industry provider that understands community banks and empowers them with technology to strengthen their competitive position and retain their most valuable asset—their employees.”

The tool helps community banks tie compensation to performance, and automate more of the process, reducing the use of cumbersome in-house spreadsheets for a more precise and efficient way to document, monitor, and project performance goals. Performance Scorecard is also customizable, allowing community banks to adjust in-score weightings and objectives and model different achievement levels.

“Retaining, recruiting, and rewarding employees has never been more important,” said Matt Riley, President of ProfitStars, a division of Jack Henry. “By using our new Performance Scorecard, community banks can link performance directly to their financial results and model different levels of achievement to understand the impact on incentive compensation. We are working in conjunction with ICBA to help ensure that their community bank members prioritize the role of appropriate incentives to strengthen their competitive edge.”

The Performance Scorecard can be utilized as a stand-alone solution or integrated with the Financial Performance Suite (FPS) from Jack Henry. Community banks that choose FPS, reduce the use of previously siloed systems, enabling more consistent and actionable financial performance data for improved decision-making.

Several of Jack Henry Financial Performance Suite solutions are endorsed by ICBA, including the company’s CECL Solutions, Forecasting and Financial Reporting, and Profitability and Pricing.
