SunTrust: An Investment in Training
SunTrust is one of the largest commercial banking organizations in the US, operating a network of nearly 1,500 branches and more than 2,000 ATMs throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states.
As part of its philanthropic commitment, SunTrust made an investment in upgrading existing courseware used by volunteers and teachers. To help with this endeavor, SunTrust turned to GP Strategies.
The GP Strategies Solution
GP Strategies went to work and developed five courses, PowerPoint decks, teacher guides, student guides, and volunteer guides for this program. These included Smart Money Habits for Kids (K–2nd Grade); Smart Money Habits for Kids (3rd Grade); Setting Your Financial Goals (9th Grade–12th Grade); A Place of My Own – Buying (9th Grade–12th Grade); and A Place of My Own – Renting (9th Grade–12th Grade).
Aside from the success of the program, GP Strategies together with SunTrust won a Silver Brandon Hall Excellence Award in the Best Custom Content category.
