Penn State Mont Alto and F&M Trust launch annual training partnership
Penn State Mont Alto Continuing Education and F&M Trust have partnered to deliver a customized professional development and supervisory skills training program for the bank’s supervisors. Sixteen new and future supervisors for the bank completed the first 16-hour program provided by Penn State in March 2011; the program will be offered on an annual basis.
After the final session, F&M Trust President and CEO William E. Snell, Jr., reminded his employees that despite the use of new technologies in the banking industry, they are “still in a people business where personal attention and relationships are key.” The program had focused on listening, coaching, understanding, providing feedback, and performance management. Karen Carmack, senior vice president and human resources manager at F&M, said the program “was a productive training. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Penn State.”
