MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 2, 2015– U.S. Bank has formed its 2015 “Dynamic Dozen,” a group of millennials chosen by the company’s senior leaders to provide their perspectives on how to make U.S. Bank a bank of choice for customers and employees in this age group.
Since 2009, each member of U.S. Bancorp’s managing committee has selected millennials to represent their respective business line in a year-long program that includes panels for input on company products and initiatives, professional development activities and a collective capstone project.
“We place tremendous value on the potential of the millennial generation and this group is instrumental in making U.S. Bank relevant to current and future millennial customers and employees,” said Kent Stone, vice chairman of consumer banking for U.S. Bancorp, and one of the program’s executive sponsors. “We congratulate this year’s Dynamic Dozen and look forward to seeing their ideas in action.”
The Dynamic Dozen has influenced a variety of initiatives at U.S. Bank, including the bank’s mobile banking road map and various career development programs. Members of the Dynamic Dozen have also participated in focus groups to help the bank better understand its benefits enrollment process and how to better engage the millennial generation as both employees and customers. The group has also provided feedback on intranet prototypes; shared insights on campus card opportunities; generated ideas to help college graduates with financial best practices; and much more.
“As sponsors, we oversee the program and provide some structure, but we take our hands off the wheel and let the group develop its year-long project – something they believe will change the way we do business tomorrow. This process has yielded results ranging from our mobile app design to how we provide banking to college students,” said Stone.
