Nancy Lloyd, Executive Assistant

Robert Cross, Alberta Store Manager

What is not to like about Umpqua Bank and their incredible staff – Barbara Baker, Robert Cross, Nancy Lloyd and Michelle Van Allen. We learned a new way of thinking about motivating employees and building a culture within an organization. The best thing is it doesn’t have to be expensive. Umpqua Bank has implemented a culture through motivational moments, CONNECT volunteer program, brag box, culture campaigns and a President’s Club. Umpqua’s commitment to the local community is unmatched in the private sector as evident by contributing to the   refurbishing of Chapman Park after the Occupy Portland encampment to employees being strongly encouraged to volunteer during work hours.

Thank you Umpqua for sharing your secrets of success with ELGL. Here’s to the beginning of a long partnership.
