“I have regular one-on-one conversations with our leadership team that cover a wide range of business topics, but talent is always a large part of our discussions. When there are open positions, we talk about candidates and ensure that the talent pool is diverse.”

-Laura Gamble Regional President, Greater Maryland Sponsor, Regional Diversity & Inclusion Council

“We’ve taken local responsibility and accountability by establishing direct connections with the diversity offices of Cleveland State University, Baldwin Wallace University and Case Western Reserve University. Being intentional has made all the difference in our ability to recruit diverse talent from these universities.”

-Paul Clark Regional President, Cleveland Sponsor, Regional Diversity & Inclusion Council

Strategic Recruitment & Employee Engagement

Our diverse workforce is essential to PNC’s success. Recruiting talent from diverse market segments provides PNC with a wealth of skills and ideas, increases employee engagement and ties us closer to the communities we serve. In 2016, we continued to expand our efforts and commitment to attract, recruit and retain minorities, veterans, women, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) community and individuals with disabilities. We empower these employees to reach their potential by creating opportunities in the workplace, including mentoring programs, employee business resource groups, and training and development. Our employees become engaged, empowered and invested when they are among diverse abilities, experiences, backgrounds, viewpoints and ideas.

Talent Acquisition

Our strategy for recruiting diverse employees locally and nationally includes valuable collaboration with our external partners, effective outreach efforts and targeted marketing. This initiative reflects our diverse customer base and creates an effective business model where we meet customers’ financial needs, nurture and broaden key relationships, and continually reach out to potential new customers. PNC’s full-time line of business development programs and summer internships attract highly qualified entrylevel talent. We identify a wide range of diverse candidates through established and long-standing partnerships with colleges and universities across the country, external diversity organizations, our Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs), and Diversity and Inclusion Councils. Additionally, we foster such relationships further through specifically targeted diversity summits to bring ongoing education and networking to undergraduate students. These initiatives are extremely valuable in building future PNC leaders.
