Recognition for serving our customers

Earning and keeping the trust of our customers is at the heart of all we do. This philosophy has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, which named us one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies® for seven consecutive years.  

That foundation of trust and ethics is core to how we serve customers, whether through our digital tools, in person at our branches or a hybrid of both. This versatility has led to recognition like The Harris Poll ranking us as the most essential bank amid the COVID-19 pandemic and Newsweek naming us the best big bank in 16 states. 

Our continual investments in digital tools also are paying off, as most consumer transactions now take place digitally. We strive to create seamless experiences, an approach that was noticed by Business Insider Intelligence, which ranked our U.S. Bank Mobile App first in the industry for customer service; by Cornerstone Advisors, which called our mobile check deposit feature the best in class, and more.

Recognition for serving our employees

Our employees are U.S. Bank, so we strive to be a great place to work – for them and our future employees. This means intentional action to be diverse, equitable and inclusive. These efforts have been noticed by organizations like DiversityInc listing us among the top 50 companies for diversity; Working Mother rating us among the top 100 companies; Military Times naming us the third-best employer for veterans in the United States; the Human Rights Campaign awarding us a perfect 100 score and naming us a best place to work for LGBTQ equality; and more.

Recognition for serving our communities

We take our responsibility to the communities we live, work and play in seriously, which comes across in how we conduct business in and give back to our communities. This collective approach is evidenced in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency awarding us the top “outstanding” rating on our most recent Community Reinvestment Act evaluation.  

As a Fortune 500 company with nearly 70,000 employees, we also know that we have the scale to help make a difference on major societal issues. This includes CDP highlighting our climate action leadership on its “A List” and the Minneapolis Star Tribune editorial board saying that our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy “sets an example.” 

Recognition for serving our shareholders

Throughout our history, our diversified business model and prudent risk management approach helped us navigate uncertain times – from the Great Depression to the COVID-19 pandemic. This resiliency has been recognized by Fortune naming us among the most admired companies in the world for management quality, Moody’s, S&P and Fitch rating our creditworthiness among the highest in the world, and American Banker recognizing our executives for digital leadership, inclusive and diverse leadership, and more.
