Bank of Hawaii
A company is only as strong as its people—and Bank of Hawaii works hard to attract, develop and retain the most talented and caring in the financial industry for its Bankoh ‘ohana.
Peter Ho, Bank of Hawaii chairman, president and CEO, said, “The performance and dedication of our people make a real difference for our customers and for our community. I couldn’t be more proud of them. We remain committed to providing resources to recognize their accomplishments, and to enhance their personal and professional development and well-being throughout their careers.”
In addition to competitive salaries, the bank offers unique and popular benefits, many of them geared toward helping employees improve their health and maintain a good balance between work and their personal lives. Free classes range from business and leadership training to health education classes and team activities. Discounted gym classes are augmented with free access to its three Oahu fitness centers. In addition, Bank of Hawaii provides other generous benefits, including company matches to the employee retirement plan, paid time-off, and discounts on banking services and products, public transportation, and dining at the bank’s two cafeterias in Honolulu and Kapolei. Some of the bank’s recently added benefit offerings include pet insurance, accident insurance, critical illness coverage and legal services.
Being part of Bank of Hawaii means working together to create changes that benefit our community. In 2014, employees contributed nearly 7,000 hours to 109 community service projects that included pulling weeds in the wetlands lo‘i (taro fields) of Kako‘o ‘Oiwi, sanding wooden beams of the Hokule‘a and Hikianalia before they set sail around the world, and reaching thousands of youngsters with age-appropriate financial lessons as part of the Bank of Hawaii Live Kokua Volunteer Program. In 2014, employees raised more than $740,000, for the Live Kokua Giving Campaign and the Live Kokua Community Walk.
Bank of Hawaii will continue to do what’s best for its employees, by investing in each individual’s professional and personal success, and enabling them to pursue and grow their career aspirations. There are many benefits to working at Bank of Hawaii, and being part of the Bankoh ‘ohana is perhaps the best one of all.
