Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is Australia’s fifth largest retail bank and is best known for its Community Bank model.
Bendigo Bank’s Community Bank was established in 1998 to address the economic decline and community dis-empowerment in affected communities in the 1990s. Since then, it has grown to a business of over $34 billion in loans and deposits, with over 1 million accounts and 320 local branches.
Bendigo Bank’s shared value approach is embedded in its overall strategy, focusing on the success of their customers, people, partners and communities.
Shared value at Bendigo Bank is led by the Managing Director and Group Executives who are responsible for developing and implementing strategy consistent with shared value principles.
