Our stakeholders include our clients, our employees, the communities we serve, and our shareholders — the owners whose capital has been entrusted to us. Our community banking model is focused on local leadership and customer relationships, and we take pride in knowing our clients and their businesses, which is reflected in our award recognition described above.Our employees are given multiple channels to communicate directly with our executive management team, including our CEO and president. These include our quarterly all-employee calls with open question-and-answer sections, town hall meetings, and listening sessions across our footprint. Our president frequently offers his phone number and invites calls and emails, as well as the opportunity to submit questions and suggestions at any time through links on all of our Zions Bancorporation intranet sites. We also conduct a biannual all-employee survey for employees to rate their satisfaction across a number of categories. Sample questions include how well groups work together effectively throughout the enterprise and availability of fair and equitable development and promotional activities for all employees. In addition to the numerical rankings, the 2021 survey responses included over 5,000 individual open comments. In addition to supporting our clients, our bankers are active in our communities, serving on hundreds of nonprofit and municipal boards and participating in many other activities as described under Volunteerism. Throughout the year, we meet regularly with investors and actively seek their feedback on a wide variety of topics related to the conduct of our business. We strive to be transparent and responsive to the varied interests of the investor community. Our quarterly investor calls and virtual annual shareholder meetings give all shareholders a convenient forum for submitting questions to management.
