Here’s to Our Essential Workers

During this difficult time, Tompkins Trust Company has remained focused on serving customers. Our team members who best exemplify that commitment are our community banking staff. Like everyone else during the pandemic, they have experienced uncertainty about the future, in some cases family loss and concern for those around them. But they have shown up for work every day to make sure they support our customers and equally as important each other.

Most importantly, they’re happy to do it. Individuals who become bankers are proud to be stewards of other people’s assets and they take that job very seriously. You don’t always think of a teller or universal banker or branch management when you think of an essential worker but they are the front line to the customer. Many of our branch staff have told me how pleased they were at the beginning of the crisis when customers said (through the drive-up speakers), “Thank goodness you are open!”

Making customer accommodations is something we are very familiar with, even before COVID. Today with many business customers and individuals still working remotely, we have taken a lot of time to educate customers on the benefits of our online capabilities and even in some cases, teaching customers how to use the drive up tube as they had always come into the branch in the past. Flexibility and a level head in a branch is key during a pandemic or any crisis situation especially with fraud being at an all-time high. Our staff is not afraid to ask important questions and to get a full understanding of the transactions the customers are requesting. The trust between our customer and branch staff is really what makes our community bank the best in the region. That’s not bragging, just fact!

Fraud Protection For Your Business

As a community bank, we’re dedicated to supporting businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to providing loan programs, we can help businesses hold on to the resources they have through services that help prevent fraud.  This is especially important now, when companies are operating with reduced staff, many of whom are working remotely. It’s a time when businesses are especially vulnerable to fraud. In fact, industry experts predict there will be an “explosion” of business and consumer fraud in the coming years.
