Popular with employees: Ice breakers during meetings include employees submitting something about themselves in advance, like a favorite song or movie, and then guessing whose is whose.
Career development/training: Prime Meridian started a mentoring program called "Building Bankers" last year, where senior employees meet monthly with younger ones to offer advice. There is no set time limit for the program; rather, the mentors and mentees end their relationship when they are ready.
Bonus/incentive program: The Tami Award, named after an employee who personified the bank's culture and core values, is given out each year. The recipient gets $500 and a crystal trophy.
