Embracing Diversity

First United is strongly committed to the principles and practices of Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO). All individuals and First United associates who apply for open positions in which they meet the job qualifications are selected solely on the basis of their skills and experience.


In no capacity are any employment-related decisions based on an individual’s gender, race, national origin, religion, veteran’s status, disability, age or sexual preference.


First United Bank & Trust is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.


Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and company's achievement as well.


We embrace and encourage our employee’s differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.


First United's diversity initiatives are applicable, but not limited, to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the on-going development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees.
  • Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules that accommodate employees’ varying needs.
  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for the diversity.

All employees of First United have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times.  All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events.  All employees are also required to complete annual diversity awareness training to enhance their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility.


Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.


Employees who believe they have been subject to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or an HR Representative.


Copies of the Federal EEO regulation and the First United Bank’s Affirmative Action Policy are available by request to the Human Resources Department.
