Our employees are one of our greatest assets so we provide a comprehensive and competitive benefits package.   Our philosophy of taking care of the customer extends to taking care of our employees so that they, in turn, can take good care of themselves and their families.  Join us and let us surprise you with even more perks!


We offer employees and their family members a choice of medical plans that include prescription drug coverage, as well as dental, vision, and flexible spending accounts.

Work/Life Balance

When our employees are healthy and having fun, we believe our overall workplace environment is improved and we all become more effective.  We invest in employees' health by providing top-tier benefits that support their total wellness.  Our Employee Assistance Program provides free and confidential assistance to employees and family members for a broad range of problems.

Paid Time Off

In support of our commitment to work/life balance of our employees, we provide a variety of paid time off programs.  Our employees earn Paid Time Off (PTO) hours to use for vacation, sick, and wellness time, enjoy paid holidays, and receive paid time off for matrimonial leave and bereavement leave.


We sponsor several benefit plans committed to providing the best possible means to our employees for planning and building for their financial futures.

  • Profit Sharing and Employee Stock Ownership (ESOP)

Funded entirely by the Bank, employees may receive a contribution of up to 9% of their annual salary at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

  • 401(k)

Employees can contribute on a pre-tax or Roth after-tax basis up to the annual IRS limit. The bank matches $.25 for every dollar contributed up to a maximum match of 1%.

  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP)

Employees may purchase shares of Hills Bancorporation common stock through payroll deduction.

Peace and Protection

Our Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability, and Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance provide our employees freedom from worry about life’s unexpected occurrences.  Supplemental life insurance is also available to employees and their family members.
