COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT ISN’T JUST SOMETHING WE SAY, IT’S SOMETHING WE DO!
There’s a term out there that people like to use called “Corporate Social Responsibility.” It’s a fancy way to say something so simple: We want to make the St. Cloud area a better place to live and work. Employees are encouraged to volunteer on their own time, but we also give each employee (full-time or part-time) 8 paid hours a year to give back to our communities!
It’s all a part of our Mission: Building lifelong relationships by providing valuable financial services that members recommend, benefits the community, and employees are proud of.
So far in 2018, we’ve volunteered over 172 company paid hours and 281 additional hours that our staff has done on their own time. That’s a total of over 500 hours given back to our communities! That’s the equivalent to driving from Seattle, Washington to Miami, Florida 10 times. Not too shabby for a small company of only about 60 employees in less than one year!
We even have a Community Involvement Committee!
This small committee meets once a month to find new opportunities to offer to our employees. Have a volunteer opportunity that we could possibly help you with? Get in touch with us! Email the chair of our Community Involvement committee, Ashley at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ripple Effect Employee Award
Each quarter an employee is nominated as the Ripple Effect Winner! The Ripple Effect is given to the employee who is truly passionate about giving back and encompasses “No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone”.
This quarters winner is Karla R. from our St. Cloud branch for her commitment to our community through various projects, meat raffles, and as a survivor herself, truly passionate about helping those battling Breast Cancer. She has a huge heart and is very deserving of this award.
