Acquiring the Best Talent

We aim to attract, recruit and retain a diverse workforce so that we can best serve our customers and communities.

Strategic Recruitment & Employee Engagement

Our diverse workforce is essential to PNC’s success. Recruiting talent from diverse market segments provides PNC with a wealth of skills and ideas, increases employee engagement and ties us closer to the communities we serve.

In 2018, we expanded our efforts and commitment to attract, recruit and retain people of color, veterans, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community and individuals with disabilities. We empower these employees to reach their potential by creating opportunities in the workplace, including mentoring programs, employee business resource groups, and training and development.

Talent Acquisition

Our strategy for recruiting diverse employees locally and nationally includes valuable collaboration with our external partners, effective outreach efforts and targeted marketing. This initiative reflects our diverse customer base and creates an effective business model where we meet customers’ financial needs, nurture and broaden key relationships, and continually reach out to potential new customers.

PNC’s full-time line of business development programs and summer internships attract highly qualified entry-level talent. We identify a wide range of diverse candidates through established and long-standing partnerships with colleges and universities across the country, external diversity organizations, our Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs), and Diversity and Inclusion Councils.

Additionally, we foster such relationships further through specifically targeted diversity summits to bring ongoing education and networking to undergraduate students. These initiatives are extremely valuable in building future PNC leaders.
