ATB 101 students tackle business challenge

At ATB, we love celebrating almost as much as we love listening. And after a great summer with the ATB 101 program, we have a whole lot to celebrate as our organization leaned in and listened to the innovative insights that were generated by our students this summer.

A mere four months ago, 63 of the top post-secondary students in the country joined Team ATB and began their journey to reimagine banking and bring happiness to Albertans. And boy did they deliver a WOW!

Through the ATB 101 program these students dared to go beyond their daily roles, and took on a Capstone challenge that pushed them out of their comfort zones and challenged them to tackle relevant business problems at ATB. Over the summer, they gained an understanding of ATB’s business strategy, connected with leaders and provided a rejuvenated perspective on ATB’s operations.

Having presented their solutions in front of their leaders, peers, and an esteemed panel of judges, two winning student teams were selected for their unique and actionable solutions that aligned with ATB’s corporate strategy.

Calgary Winners: Mental Health

This group of students tackled the question of how can ATB further develop its existing wellness initiatives to improve dialogue and reduce stigma around mental health through all stages of the employee life cycle.

Their solution: ATB Speaks. ATB Speaks focuses on the creation of a peer-to-peer mental health network modelled and grown from the Wellness Champion network.

There would be authentic content and resources for team members to access through a consolidated mental health digital platform. Through this platform, accessibility and consistency of mental wellness resources can be provided for all ATBers in removing stigma and stimulating valuable conversations around the ever-growing importance of mental health.

Edmonton Winners: FinTech

This group of students tackled the innovative issue of identifying key FinTechs that will further assist in ATB’s digital strategy moving forward to reimagine banking and make banking work for people.

Their solution: Access ATB. Access ATB is an innovative and strategic recommendation to utilize leading FinTech platforms that will assist in improving lending and payment experiences for our customers. Through these platforms, more meaningful data can be collected to ensure customers can access banking services that meet their unique and evolving needs on a global scale.
