Employee Engagement

Our employees work hard to ensure PNC’s success. Acknowledging those contributions in meaningful ways is critical to creating a workplace where employees are engaged, productive and happy.

2018 Employee Recognition Highlights:

  • Honoring eight employees during our 26th Annual Performance Awards ceremony, a live-streamed event that recognizes a group of peer-nominated employees selected through a months-long evaluation and scoring process.
  • Inducting more than 400 employees into our Quarter Century Club, which recognizes those who have 25 years of service with the company. In 2018, one of our largest inductee classes in recent history joined more than 4,200 others who are already part of the Quarter Century Club.
  • Distributing millions of recognition messages and award points through Spotlight, our employee recognition program. The Thanksgiving-themed #ThankfulThursdays increased the number of recognition messages by 40% over the previous November.

Matching Gifts

We support employees' philanthropy by matching their charitable contributions dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500 per year. All active full-time employees are eligible, and contributions can be matched to educational institutions, cultural organizations and human services organizations, as defined and approved by the PNC Foundation Matching Gift Program.

Employee Volunteerism

We encourage employees to become involved in the Grow Up Great program by offering 40 hours of paid time off per year in support of early childhood education. In addition, the Grants for Great Hours program allows a PNC employee who volunteers at least 40 hours over a 12-month period at a qualified, early education nonprofit to donate a $1,000 grant to that nonprofit. Groups of employees may volunteer as a team and apply for a grant of up to $3,000. From the program’s inception, 67,991 employees have volunteered more than 850,000 hours, earning more than $6.6 million in grants and donating more than 1.3 million items, including books, school supplies and other needed items.

Employees and managers who recognize one another for doing great work earn points toward the purchase of iPads for Grow Up Great organizations. Since the inception of #GreatKids in 2015, more than 1,000 iPads have been earned and donated. Employees participate in the delivery of the iPads and often lend their technology expertise as well.

Our employees also serve on community boards and committees to share their skills in areas ranging from data analysis to strategic planning. According to community partners, our employees provide highly valued support to those who need it most.

Measuring Engagement

Employees who are highly engaged in their role and with their company are more likely to advocate for the company’s brands and products and, in turn, drive greater customer loyalty. In 2018, we moved to a twice-yearly employee engagement survey that goes to all employees at the same time. While the metric for employee engagement is the Net Promoter Score (NPS), we gain even greater insight from the voluntary comments included in the survey. These comments are used in team discussions to identify both successes and opportunities for improvement.

Strengthening Connections. Fostering Success.
