Our #TeamAmex colleagues are constantly redefining what’s possible – and because of them, we ranked #8 on the 2022 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For by Great Place to Work US and Fortune Magazine. We’re proud to have their backs and continue to make investments in the colleague experience – fostering an inclusive environment where colleagues can grow and develop in ways that are unique and meaningful to them and have the support and flexibility they need to be and deliver their best, both professionally and personally. “Our colleagues put their heart into backing our customers and the communities where we live and work,” said Monique Herena, our Chief Colleague Experience Officer. “As a company, we put the same heart into backing our colleagues—placing them at the center of everything we do, focusing on the whole person, their well-being, and fostering a strong sense of belonging. From hiring and onboarding to growing their careers and everything in between, we are committed to making the moments that matter great for them.”
#TeamAmex colleagues came together at our New York headquarters and other offices this month as part of our new way-of-working model, Amex Flex. Offering flexibility has always been part of our culture, and since we announced Amex Flex, the majority of our colleagues in the U.S. have chosen a hybrid schedule that combines both an in-person and virtual presence, while more than 40% have opted to be fully virtual. Thank you to our colleagues for their enthusiasm, camaraderie, and collaboration this week!

We’re celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at American Express by honoring the history and culture of the Hispanic and Latinx community and appreciating and acknowledging the impact our colleagues make on our organization.

We will hear perspectives from external speakers and our #TeamAmex colleagues on how to support each other and will use this month as a call to action for all of us to continue empowering each other.

This International Women’s Day we celebrated & honored the contributions of women and their allies. In the face of challenges stemming from the pandemic, 66% of women surveyed* agree that their priorities have dramatically changed. Even with these changes and taking on significant responsibilities during, more than half (56%) of women surveyed are still ambitious and 43% believe working virtually has enabled them to be ambitious in parts of their lives outside of work. This International Women’s Day we connected with #TeamAmex women through events focused on having real and open conversations about family, caregiving, mental health and career. Throughout the year we will continue to support our women with mentoring programs, leadership development trainings and tools, and resources and benefits that support holistic wellbeing. These efforts build on our long history of proudly backing women’s ambition. We are proudly continuing to back women’s ambition through #TheAmbitionProject.
