U.S. Bank's Proud to Serve Group Recognized for Its Contributions and Achievements

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 14, 2015-- U.S. Bank is being recognized for the contributions and achievements of its Proud to Serve Business Resource Group. Proud to Serve has been named one of the Top 25 U.S. Employee Resource Groups for 2015 by the Association of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) & Councils.

U.S. Bank will be recognized during the Seventh Annual Honors Award Dinner on Oct. 14 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center Hotel in Virginia. U.S. Bank was one of 538 resource groups and diversity councils that applied.

U.S. Bank honors and supports the men and women of the U.S. military through its Proud to Serve group. This group, established in 2008, focuses on hiring and supporting veterans and members of military families throughout their U.S. Bank careers. Proud to Serve has a far-reaching positive impact that also touches its 68,000 employees and the veterans and military families in the communities the bank serves. Proud to Serve is open to all employees at U.S. Bank.

“It is a great honor to be recognized for our efforts to help make U.S. Bank a welcoming place for veterans to work,” said Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bank. “Our Proud to Serve group provides a variety of effective resources for veterans in the areas of recruiting, employee engagement, professional and business development, and community involvement. It’s rewarding to provide these resources to people who have served our country and helped protect our freedom.”

"The fact that U.S. Bank placed among the top 25 recipients in the first application attempt speaks to the impact that Proud to Serve is having," said Linda Stokes, president and chief executive officer of PRISM International, Inc., and the Association of ERGs & Councils.
