Put people first through your work and make a difference to the causes you care about.
Have the confidence you’ll be encouraged to do the right thing, no matter what.
We’re all about helping you reach your goals and tailoring your career to fit your aspirations.
It’s one of the most frequent questions asked in job interviews: “Tell me about the culture here.” UMB’s culture is co-created every day by our associates.
There’s something special about working with others who are true experts in their field and who genuinely want to see you succeed. Have a new idea? Let’s explore it. Struggling with a project? Your team has your back. We’re focused on creating experiences for our customers they can’t find elsewhere. This vision requires us to do things differently than how they’ve always been done. From working on new ways to serve our customers, exploring multiple career paths and giving back to our communities, you’ll never be bored.
How we approach doing business with integrity is simple. We tell UMBers to do the right thing, no matter what. Even if the right path is a harder one, we’ll support you.
We’ve been around for a while—but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck in the past. Ultimately, we want our company to be as diverse as the world we live in, meaning comprised of people of all races, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, ages, backgrounds and more. However, we know a diverse workforce means nothing without inclusion. Having a seat at the table is not the same as having a voice and feeling like you belong. That’s why we value and prioritize our 3,000+ associate voices.
UMB’s Business Resource Groups (BRGs) give associates the opportunity to find commonalities with others, learn more about one another and to be an available source of diverse customer perspectives.
“At UMB we don’t see diversity and inclusion as the right thing to do, we see it as a way to energize our culture and ignite innovation... Diversity brings unique ways of thinking and problem solving — approaching things from different perspectives always results in better solutions. Better solutions are what we strive for every day for our customers. Diversity and Inclusion differentiate UMB, and we are very proud of that.”
We pledge to support an inclusive workplace.
There’s no magic way to ensure an inclusive environment; it’s something we work towards, learn from and redefine every day. We have taken many steps to maintain an open dialogue about inclusion at UMB, challenging each other to truly get to know the people we work with on a deeper level. One way we do this is through what we call “UMB Together,” or ongoing conversations and events that build understanding and address biases.
UMB's Supplier Diversity Program is committed to building strong and sustainable relationships with viable and diverse businesses. The program encourages small and minority-owned businesses to provide competitive bids for materials and services we need. In addition, UMB provides financial solutions and education for these business partners.
“Everyone is excited to help grow the business. We don’t feel like we’re just getting assignments; we all feel like part of the growth.”
– Amy Small
“If we have a problem come up, people don’t hesitate to jump in and start working on it together. No one will ever say ‘I’m too busy to help you.’ You don’t see this kind of collaboration at other companies.”
“Not once have I felt like an outsider or like I didn’t belong. Everyone has a community here.”
– Trina Gutierrez
