Description: The article is about regions bank login. The passage talks about the achievements the Regions Bank has made during the 2017 and their new business goal for the future. Regions Bank highly values their customers their shareholders and sticks to improve itself in the future.
Today I won’t 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 our banks 160 years history. Our total shareholder return was 23% for the year which outpaces both the average for our regional bank peers and the S&P is 500.
Our goal is to increase long-term shared value and we’re on track to deliver against that objective,our five-year total return of 167% places us near the top among our regional banking peer group. For the year,our net income totaled 1.2 billion dollars,this was an increase of 9% from the prior year,our earnings per share grew to $1,this was 15 percent higher than 2016.
But behind those numbers is something even more important,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 building teams for meeting 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 and our shareholders well. We ended the year with good momentum and I am looking forward to capitalizing on that momentum as we face even more opportunities in 2018.
