An Innovative Environment

The St. Louis Fed aspires to be a place where innovation and creativity are second nature to employees. The resiliency of the Bank depends, in part, on the ability of employees to showcase these traits. The Bank encourages the generation of new ideas to improve its products and services and to find more creative ways of doing business.

The Bank fosters this innovative culture through regular employee forums to discuss topics in innovation, as well as in-house expos that showcase ongoing innovative projects. Innovation is also formally recognized at the annual town hall meetings, which feature President’s Award nominations for ideas and products that demonstrate the innovative spirit.
