Achieve More
A phenomenal culture takes time and hard work, and we put in both because our success is based upon the success of our people. With a shared passion for authenticity and dedication, we are able to demonstrate our integrity with each other and the communities we serve. A collaborative environment is paramount because teams that are valued, supported and determined to evolve are able to achieve more.

Core Values at Columbia Bank

We thrive on the strength of our relationships. By empowering individuals and teams to make the best decisions, every employee drives the success of our company forward. Our core values reflect this and we actively support our team as they create the future of finance one relationship at a time.

Our business is based on authentic, long-term relationships and this requires that we conduct ourselves in a consistent, honest and compassionate manner at all times.

We are organized and operate in a strong team environment. Our attitude is that we win together, and we encourage individuality in order to advance and enrich the work of our team.

We bring a creative, problem-solving mentality to every situation. We see alternatives, take initiative and maintain accountability every day.

We are distinct because we expect every employee to impact the way we operate. We are all active players who participate, shape and contribute toward our mutual success.

We are committed to gaining knowledge, skills and experience on an ongoing basis in order to innovate, drive customer satisfaction and improve ourselves.

We firmly believe that we’re only as strong as the communities we serve. Our involvement with our community is an important part of who we are.

We are always willing to go the extra mile for our customers and do what it takes to get the job done. This means we make every decision with the customer in mind and stand behind every decision we make.

Keeping one another informed and up-to-date is essential, and includes actively listening to and learning from each other.

Find a Better Balance

We encourage everyone to find the right balance between professional and personal time because we know the reward for balance is unparalleled. Unlike some 24/7 industries, our employees appreciate having a schedule that allows them to be home so they can cherish the people and moments that matter most. Our team members also enjoy a range of company-sponsored events and family-friendly activities throughout the year and across the picturesque Northwest.


Our employees are passionate about doing the right thing for their community and we’re honored to have these efforts recognized by our peers from local, regional and national organizations.
