If I was asked this question five years ago, I would have had a completely different answer. Previously, I would have said that I am most motivated by my career path and growth.
Since then, I’ve had the blessing of becoming a parent to a now-three-year-old daughter and am expecting another daughter in a few months. These family additions have completely shifted my perspective on what is most important and where my motivation lies. In my career, it is important for me to continually be challenged and always learning, but the most important time of my day is when I’m logged off from work and spending time with my family. At M&T, employees are encouraged to seek the balance we need to be fully productive at work and fully present at home.
Career growth does not have to come at the expense of your personal life. M&T understands that when its employees are happily engaged and find the right balance that they seek, the Bank will attract and retain the best talent and will continue to be successful.
