Everyday dedication meets everyday appreciation

We continue to invest in our employees with initiatives like Sharing Success, which awarded 96% of colleagues additional compensation this year, nearly all in stock. This is the sixth time teammates received this award, totaling more than $4 billion. We are committed to being a Great Place to Work for our teammates locally and around the globe including providing leading benefits, minimum wage at $22/hr on track to $25/hr by 2025 and opportunities to build a career with us.

Another boost in the fight against hunger in Connecticut

We're committed to supporting our employees' health and safety and to addressing our local communities' most critical needs. That's why we've donated to local hunger-relief organizations on behalf of each employee who received a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and/or a flu shot.* In addition, employees are doubling the impact of their personal donations to fight hunger with our matching gifts program.

Through this effort, our team in Connecticut recently presented Connecticut Foodshare with a check for $95,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Bill Tommins, President of Bank of America Southern Connecticut, about our role in keeping Southern Connecticut moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Southern Connecticut has a strong team committed to helping all our communities thrive. We’re making a difference through a number of programs, including those that connect workers to new skills and fight homelessness and food insecurity. We’re supporting hospitality workers displaced by the health crisis retrain for careers in healthcare, collaborating with major hospital systems to identify job needs. Funds have gone directly to community colleges to cover tuition for low-income students and to nonprofits that are helping their clients overcome obstacles such as a lack of childcare or transportation. We’re also working toward expanding healthcare access to our most vulnerable minority communities. And, given wealth disparities in our region, we’re proud to support affordable housing initiatives through long-standing partnerships in the area.

A new start for those out of work

Confronting the uneven impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on different industries, a public-private partnership in southern Connecticut is retraining displaced workers in hospitality and other hard-hit local industries for high-demand jobs in healthcare. Workers participate in fast-tracked career training programs at local community colleges while also receiving assistance with housing, childcare, food, and other basic needs to ensure they can complete their training.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.
