Our Talent-Focused Culture

PNC’s approach to providing career and development opportunities is structured, transparent and consistent across the organization.

This approach helps us execute on our longer-term strategy, which is to prioritize employee growth, accelerate leadership development, make career paths clear and factor diversity into all talent decisions. Furthermore, it allows employees to take greater ownership of their careers by providing guidance as to how they may move or advance within the organization. Finally, as part of its commitment to building a talent-focused culture, PNC strongly encourages managers to provide regular feedback to their direct reports and to create an inclusive and collaborative environment.

Where We Are Headed
PNC’s talent-focused culture will manifest itself in many ways across our company. Through this culture, we expect to:

  • Leverage our new tools to increase manager effectiveness and help employees navigate potential career paths.
  • Ensure that the right people are in the most critical roles so that we can achieve better business outcomes. Businesses must be empowered to make meaningful decisions using talent-driven data.
  • Provide greater insights to businesses on how they can identify and close gaps in employee competencies and subsequently enhance their teams’ performance and efficiency.
  • Incorporate competencies into the recruiting process so that employees clearly understand the knowledge, skills and behaviors required for specific jobs.
  • Ensure that employees and managers understand how their respective competencies should align to their performance goals.
  • Enhance internal mobility so that top talent is identified, rewarded and moved into key roles across the organization.  

When our employees have rewarding careers and opportunities for growth, they are more productive.
