We are starting the new year by investing in our associates. The tax reform bill that passed at the end of 2017 will result in a significant tax savings benefit for businesses, including Heartland Bank. As a result, we are pleased to announce we are sharing this benefit with our valued associates.

Our strength is in our associates. They do a fantastic job every day serving our customers and communities, and this is one way we can continually recognize their efforts and invest in their futures.

“As you all know, a bank is only as good as its associates, and we have the best in the business. I am always proud of how our team works tirelessly to anticipate and exceed customer expectations,” said Heartland Bank President and CEO John Wilkins.

Because of this, Heartland Bank as made the following commitments to their associates:

  • $1,000 financial bonus to all full-time, non-Executive Committee, associates
  • $500 financial bonus to all part-time, non-Executive Committee, associates

Heartland Bank has associates who exemplify our values: who are caring, family-oriented, leaders, professional, have integrity and strive for excellence. Just last year, Heartland Bank received the recognition of being one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017 by American Banker. This was the first time a bank from Nebraska has been named to the list, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the team associates at Heartland Bank.

Throughout the year, Heartland Bank will continue to evaluate other opportunities to invest in our team, business and communities as a result of the tax savings.

“Heartland Bank has a long history of providing leadership to improve the lives of our customers, associates and communities. We are committed to continuing this legacy in 2018 and beyond. It’s an honor and a privilege to lead such an outstanding team,” said John Wilkins.
