Best Places to Work: First Community Bank

1 min read

Locally owned and managed, First Community Bank operates 29 full-service branches in Arkansas and Missouri.

Upon its founding in 1997, First Community Bank made a pledge to put community first in every decision it made. Its slogan “Where Community Comes First” is its commitment to be good local partners.

The family of bankers believes in the value of giving time, talent and financial support to worthy causes on the philosophy that, where strong community banks are found, so are strong and vibrant communities.

The culture surrounding First Community Bank is built on the importance of relationships — both within its local neighborhoods and within the bank’s walls.

Four values make up the foundation of the First Community Bank culture. 

Employees and leadership reflect respect for one another and in each of the branch communities. They strive for excellence daily. The bank provides education for employees to achieve their career goals.

Finally, as a family of bankers, the First Community team members show compassion for each other and their customers.
