Beyond benefits: Banks that invest in their employees’ well-being
Even in a corporate environment that is on a never-ending mission to cut expenses and increase profitability, some banks still refuse to let their employees suffer as a consequence.
While a comfortable salary and competitive benefits package are always nice perks, a few key institutions have gone the extra mile to better their employees’ lives in unique ways:
• Centier Bank opened an on-site health clinic for their employees to use, regardless of their insurance provider.
• Bell State Bank & Trust started the “Pay It Forward” program in 2007, which provides full and part-time employees with an annual allowance of $1,000 and $500 respectively to be given to a person, family or organization in need.
• Old Point National Bank give their tellers the money – and time – to shop for work attire twice each year.
• City Bank not only allows, but encourages, their employees to exercise for 30 minutes on the clock every day at work.
• Independence Bank pays for their employees’ entry fees into fitness events and competitions, if they wear apparel with the bank’s logo during the event.
