Employee Culture

At Quad City Bank & Trust, we've developed a powerful corporate culture, one that's evident in every facet of our organization. It's based on the common goal of providing exceptional, personal service and built on the core values of teamwork, mutual respect, and honesty. There are no greater assets than our employees and it shows in our work environment, community focus, employee programs, and benefits.

Providing forums for open communication and avenues for recognition are important aspects of a positive work environment. That's why staff members from every department are represented on a variety of committees throughout the company. In addition, employees are encouraged to share their ideas for improvements, whether functional, structural, or otherwise, through an internal committee dedicated to innovation. Employees also have an opportunity to recognize and reward one another for going above and beyond, for everything from providing exceptional customer service to aiding a fellow coworker, through Impression Awards.

As a community-focused bank, one of our goals is to positively influence the Quad City area. At Quad City Bank & Trust, we go one step further than just a sponsorship and donation program. We promote, support, and recognize the impact our employees make in the community through a unique VolunCHEERS program we created. The program encourages employees to volunteer during or after business hours for any number of community-based organizations. Volunteer activities are then submitted and considered in annual reviews, and once certain milestones are reached the bank donates money back to the organizations and causes that matter most to our employees as a thank you for their service.

Quad City Bank & Trust also hosts a number of employee events to focus solely on fun and fellowship. For example, employees gather every other spring for a company-wide retreat. The day away from the office promotes discussion on many topics and features fun team-building exercises.

We value our employees, and it shows.

"I have been with Quad City Bank & Trust for over 5 years and feel like I have found a home. The correspondent team, that I am privileged to work with, lend to a very positive work environment and the staff has great depth of knowledge. Without question, I can count on all of them.

I am uniquely situated in a role where the products and services I offer are extremely competitive and I can say that many of my customers are great friends. I can't ask for more than that. Like the old saying goes:'"It's not work if you love what you do.'"

- Clay Boatman, Senior Vice President, Correspondent Banking Officer

"I enjoy coming to work every day for many reasons. The quality of people I work with, the relationships I've developed with my clients over the years, and truly enjoying the work I do. I've been with the bank for 20 years and I feel very fortunate after all of these years to still be excited about coming to work every day. Years ago, Private Banking came up with a slogan to describe the culture in our department, and the work we do. That slogan was Consider it done. The intent is to come to work and exceed our clients expectations no matter how simple or difficult the request. I believe this philosophy translates throughout the Company and because of that - I love working for Quad City Bank & Trust."

- Marcy Devlin, Vice President, Private Banking Officer

"I love my job because of the people that I work with! Every team member is dependable & always willing to work hard to reach our goals together. Rather than co-workers, I consider them my friends."

- Janelle Carter, First Vice President, Treasury Management Officer
