Giving back to team members builds good morale and trust. The more Synovus gives back to their team members the more their employees want to remain working here. Giving back to the community has always been important to Synovus, during my internship we volunteered at three different local communities. It’s great to help those in need and giving back to the community. This also helps Synovus with gaining visibility in the community. The more people in the Columbus Georgia communities see Synovus whether it’s at a fundraising event or when Synovus is sponsoring something it represents Synovus in a positive light. Customers will prefer to bank with a place that they know of.
