OceanFirst has been headquartered in NJ since 1902, and we are really proud of that fact. Our founders were establishing our roots in this great state the same year Theodore Roosevelt became the first American President to ride in an automobile and the first college football bowl game, the Rose Bowl was held. Initially, our focus was helping our neighbors realize the dream of owning a home. Now, more than a century stronger, we’re still here, helping fulfill those dreams and helping families with all their financial needs during every stage of life.
Whether it’s home ownership, building a business, teaching children the value of saving, financing higher education, or planning for the future, our goal is to help all of our neighbors reach their financial goals. OceanFirst builds value for its shareholders as a growth oriented, community-focused financial services organization. By providing innovative products backed by outstanding service, we will achieve our vision of enhancing our commitment and responsiveness to the markets, customers and team members we serve.
OceanFirst Bank espouses an atmosphere of respect, integrity, and collaboration where team members are encouraged to contribute to the success of the Company as unique individuals who are part of a diverse employee population. We are collectively stronger as a team when we reflect and understand the differences of the organizations and communities we serve. Embracing the distinctions and differences, and welcoming staff to be authentic builds a culture of trust, employee engagement, and success. There is no tolerance for discrimination of any kind. We promote diversity through our human capital and business efforts, and we are all responsible to recognize and respect the uniqueness of individuals in the relationships we cultivate. OceanFirst Bank is committed to having a workforce that reflects the communities in which we serve. Diversity helps create a positive work environment where all employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential and maximize their contributions to OceanFirst Bank’s vision and mission. Everyone at OceanFirst Bank has a role to play in supporting our commitment to a culture where individuals are respected; and each of us is responsible for treating all others in a fair, respectful, and non-discriminatory manner. Our professional relationships are the foundation of an inclusive culture.
