What are some of this branch’s favorite ways to save money?
One way we try to save money is using printouts we no longer need as scrap paper instead of ordering scratch pads.
Do you have any specific stories about how branch employees have helped customers borrow smart or save smarter?
It is really hard to pinpoint just one situation. We do this every day by refinancing loans from other institutions, transferring balances from higher interest cards and talking in-depth to members about their financial needs.
Any other funny or meaningful stories you’d like to share with everyone?
We had a team-building exercise where we each had to tie a balloon around our ankle and we ran around the branch trying to pop other employee’s balloons by stepping on them. The person left with a balloon still intact was the winner.
During the Wellness step challenge, we had a couple of mornings where we line danced as a team to get our steps in on our Fit Bit.
