Description: The article is about regions bank login. The author tells us the history of the Regions Bank including the goal and the contributions of the company. The goal of the company is creating shared value between company and the customer.
Today I want to spend a few minutes talking about our 2017 successes and our strategies for the future. Our commitment to continuous improvement contributed to a year of strong performance. In fact 2017 was one of the most successful in 160 years history in our banks.
Total shareholder return was 23% for the year outpacing both the average for our regional bank peers and the S&P is 500. Our goal is to increase long-term value and we’re on track to deliver against that objective. Our five-year total return of one hundred and sixty seven percent places us near the top among our regional banking peer group.
For the year net income totaled 1.2 billion dollars which appears an increase of 9% from the prior year. Earnings per share grew to $1 which makes 15 percent higher than 2016. But behind those numbers is something even more important that is our customers.
We spend a lot of time thinking about what customers need from us today and what they will expect from us in the future. After all our continued success rests on properly aligning,our capabilities,our solutions,processes products and teams with the needs of our customers. We know expectations constantly change. They evolve rapidly and so must we.
While our customers’needs are changing,our commitment to shared values not. In fact our emphasis on creating shared value is not ancillary to our strategic objectives. It continues to be at the heart of who we are and what we believe is a company.
In 2017 we devoted nearly 1 million hours to associate training, supporting employees professional growth and advancement. In addition to our normal merit increases in 2018,we will materially increase the hourly wages of our workforce. Our associates provided over 60,000 volunteer hours to nonprofit causes of their choice. In addition in January,2018 we announced an additional 40 million dollar contribution to the companies Charitable Foundation in order to support financial education,job training economic development and affordable housing.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation and my personal gratitude to our team of associates for their hard work and dedication this past year. I’m proud of our accomplishments and our results as we serve our customers,our communities,our shareholders well. We ended the year with good momentum and I look forward to capitalizing on that momentum as we face even more opportunities in 2018.
