HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE OUR HIGHEST PRIORITIES
Health And Safety Statement
Supporting the health, wellness, and safety of our employees is a top priority for Banc of California. While maintaining a safe and healthy work environment is a coordinated effort across the organization, the Human Resources (HR) department is primarily responsible for ensuring compliance with this statement.
Our employee benefits embrace work-life balance to provide for more than the standard base salary and bonus opportunities. Our work-life balance initiatives include providing a hybrid work environment, flex-time work hours, tuition reimbursement benefits, a mentorship program as well as a 401(k) plan, and Flexible and Dependent care accounts. We encourage a healthy work-life balance and afford employees opportunities to take time off, free from job responsibilities, to rest and recharge. In addition to vacation days or flex-time days off, we provide 11 paid holidays and one paid cultural day every year. We also offer up to eight hours of paid volunteer time annually to all employees. We have an HR system of record that helps us monitor compliance with applicable overtime, meal and rest-break requirements for our full-time, part-time, and temporary employees.
Our health and wellness offerings go beyond traditional health and fitness and include mental and psychological health, nutrition, movement, ergonomics, and financial wellness. We also provide a comprehensive employee assistance program that includes consultative services for personal, family and work issues.
Banc of California recruits, hires, and retains employees on the basis of their qualifications for performance of a specific job, without regard to disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation or other classifications protected by federal, state, or local laws. Banc of California does not discriminate on the basis of physical, mental, or other disability conditions and support the needs for reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
