EV­ERY JUNE, GRAN­ITE CREDIT UNION CALLS A staff meet­ing and gives each em­ployee $500 to “say thank you for the ex­cep­tional ef­forts,” ex­plained Vice Pres­i­dent of Hu­man Re­sources Mark Young. In April 2017, the credit union set a new loans record.

“Es­sen­tially, the $500 per em­ployee rep­re­sented the amount in in­come over bud­get for one month due to the enor­mous amount of loans in April,” said Young. “Our goal is to share our suc­cess and for em­ploy­ees to know ex­actly how they con­trib­ute to that suc­cess.”

Gran­ite Credit Union re­cently added a well­ness pro­gram to ad­dress ar­eas of po­ten­tial stress in em­ploy­ees’ lives. Pro­grams are geared to­ward phys­i­cal, men­tal, com­mu­nity, fi­nan­cial and ca­reer well­ness, ex­plained Young.

“We in­tro­duced a pro­gram to match em­ployee’s phys­i­cal well­ness costs up to $100 a year. We match com­mu­nity dona­tions to char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions of the em­ployee’s choice up to $250 a year,” said Young. “We also in­tro­duced fi­nan­cial on­line tools through Dave Ram­sey’s Smart dol­lar pro­gram at no cost to our em­ploy­ees. Em­ployee re­sponse to th­ese pro­grams has been fan­tas­tic.”

Em­ploy­ees also have the op­por­tu­nity to visit “Lynn’s Lunch & Round­table.” Around noon on select days, five or six em­ploy­ees break bread with their CEO.

“Em­ploy­ees have an op­por­tu­nity to ask any ques­tion and pro­vide feed­back to the CEO, Lynn Kuehne,” said Young. “Lynn has taken em­ployee ques­tions and feed­back se­ri­ously im­ple­ment­ing changes or ed­u­ca­tion as needed,” said Young.

Founded in 1935, Gran­ite Credit Union sup­ports eight branches and serves more than 31,000 mem­bers.
