Our Commitment

We are dedicated to executing a corporate strategy that supports the long-term viability of our business model. We trust that by emphasizing the positive impact on our employees, customers, shareholders, the environment, and the communities we serve, we can foster a culture of corporate responsibility and a commitment to the community.

We have identified the following three priorities as part of our comprehensive corporate responsibility initiative:

Environmental Consciousness

At our company, we strive to adopt sustainable business practices that reduce our ecological footprint.
Our ‘Sustainable Habits’ initiative coincides with environmental days in April each year where we encourage our team members and communities to reduce paper usage, embrace reusable cups, and recycle paper, plastics, and electronics as available.

Additionally, we are very proud to conduct an annual tree planting campaign. The campaign recognizes each of the bank’s employees by planting a tree in their honor. The trees are planted as part of the reforestation work of both the Santa Ana and Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Texas.

“We are proud to have planted over one acre of new trees across Texas forests since we launched our Arbor Day Tree Planting Campaign in 2022. As a company with deep Texas roots, Third Coast recognizes the important role trees play in the community and local ecology. It is truly humbling to see that Third Coast is helping to ensure Texas remains a beautiful and sustainable place to live and enjoy for years to come,” said Bart Caraway, Third Coast's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Human Capital Management

We invest in our workforce by offering competitive wages and benefits, continually working to create a strong company culture, and nurturing our talent through training and retention programs. Our goal is to reduce turnover and increase employee satisfaction.

Third Coast Bank implemented an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides resources, training, and online tools to assist employees with mindfulness, stress release and gratitude exercises.

We value the opinions of our employees and recently surveyed our employees for their feedback on diversity, equity and inclusion specific topics. Their voices matter.

Third Coast Bank recognizes the many benefits of having a diverse workforce. Diversity impacts all stages of employment, from making it easier to attract and retain top talent, to better performance among diverse teams, to the greater innovation and creativity that comes from a workforce comprised of different backgrounds and experiences. We believe a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization workforce is critical to our success, and we work hard to create an environment where our employees feel inspired to do their best work. Our goal is to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) organization where everyone feels valued and respected for their unique capabilities and where everyone is engaged in our strategic vision of continued strong growth. We are proud that a diverse group of people from all backgrounds, religions, nationalities, gender identity, sexual orientations and races make up our team. In fact, over 47% of our workforce is comprised of ethnic minorities. Additionally, while 67% of our overall workforce is female, women represent 29% of our C-level executives. Third Coast provides employee resources such as handbooks, procedures, and training in more than one language and continually looks for ways to be more inclusive and tap into the talent of our diverse workforce.
