You’ve probably heard people say that it pays to do the right thing. At First United Bank, they had the same idea.
That’s why the company offers employees paid time off to spend the day volunteering in community events such as March of Dimes, Relay for Life or the Meals on Wheels program. Through a volunteer committee and newsletter, everyone knows when their next chance to do a good deed will come up.
First United supports a family-friendly, flexible work schedule for its employees. It is as committed to them as it is to the community, which shows in the 10% annual bonus all full-time employees receive, and the 5% bonus for part-time employees.
Employees with fitness in mind find another way to save money at the fitness center First United offers, which comes with a wide range of strength-training, cardiovascular and other equipment free to use for employees and their spouses. While volunteering proves this bank has a good heart, there’s not much better than a run or pumping some iron to show it’s strong, too.
The goal of is simple, and has remained consistent over the years: Put customers first.
“Our calling is to do what we can to help our customers grow and succeed,” says a company spokesperson.
