We know that a key factor in our employee satisfaction is our pledge that First Hope will not be sold, and that we are not growing to make ourselves attractive to a potential buyer. Rather, our steady growth is a direct result of associates who are contented, secure banking professionals with a desire to help customers fulfill their financial hopes and dreams.

Our strategy is to promote from within, and we train all our employees so that they can advance within our organization. To this end, we have a dedicated training department to ensure that ongoing education is simply part of our corporate culture. We provide an excellent benefits package, and we reward team effort through our generous employee incentive plan.
