Our Sustained Commitment to Corporate Responsibility
Though a few things have changed since we first opened our doors over 150 years ago, one thing has not: Our commitment to creating opportunities for our clients, our employees and our communities. We are also committed to transparency and are proud to share our progress with you here.
A Message from our President and CEO
Sandy Spring Bank has proudly served the Greater Washington region for 154 years. Our company’s success and longevity are not a coincidence. Over the decades, our past leaders and thousands of employees have been intentional stewards of our company and the communities we serve. Every day we strive to uphold this legacy through the products and services we offer, the opportunities we provide for our people and communities, and the ways we care for the environment.
We are committed to measuring our progress and making a meaningful impact, so we are pleased to share with you our second annual Corporate Responsibility Report. This report details where we are in our journey to address the areas that we believe are most important to our stakeholders and to driving long-term value. Our focus areas include:
Ensuring a strong governance and culture of ethics and integrity in all that we do
Attracting, retaining and developing a diverse, highly skilled workforce where employees feel included, respected and valued
Supporting the needs of all clients and the communities in which we operate
Caring for our planet by minimizing our impact on the environment
Our efforts today will pave the way for future generations of clients, employees and community partners, so we are committed to getting it right. We will evolve our reporting in the years ahead and continue to be transparent about our approach.
On behalf of all of us at Sandy Spring Bank, thank you for your interest in our work. We are grateful for the opportunity to build strong communities and trust in our organization.
