A Supportive Workplace

Bob Darrow, a data analyst at KeyBank in Brooklyn, Ohio, was hired with the help of The Precisionists—a venture aimed at recruiting people with disabilities and matching them with jobs at companies including Pfizer, UBS, Exelon Energy and Vanderbilt University. KeyBank’s partnership with The Precisionists allowed them to bring Darrow onto the team, as well as seven other new bank employees—all of whom have autism or another developmental disability.

When Gary moved back to Ohio from Florida, he didn’t have anywhere to live—except his truck. An outreach team from the VA connected Gary to the HUD-VASH program, which provides rental assistance for homeless veterans. Gary soon secured an apartment where he began to rebuild his life. He went on to secure a VA home loan from Huntington Bank in Youngstown, OH, and his dream of owning a home became a reality.

Putting Customers First

When it comes to serving customers, Jackie O’s pub and brewery in Athens, OH, shares the same values as the bank they depend on to do so, Hocking Valley in Athens. When the brewery began its expansion, owner Art Oestrike knew Hocking Valley would provide the service the business needed to realize its goals. “In our values and mission statement, we want to work locally,” says Oestrike. “If we have a sudden problem that needs dealt with, I have someone on site that I can talk to.”
