Added benefit follows a pattern of employee engagement and volunteerism
SALT LAKE CITY—June 30, 2016—EnerBank USA recently announced it is providing employees up to two weeks of parental and adoption leave as part of its comprehensive and competitive employee benefit package. All full-time employees qualify for the leave, a benefit expanding nationwide to further promote employee engagement and morale
In addition to the competitive benefit package, EnerBank promotes serving within the community. In 2015, employees donated more than 1,500 hours for various charities and programs, including the American Red Cross, Christmas Box House, First Step House, Junior Achievement, NeighborWorks Salt Lake, People Helping People, United Way and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). In addition, many of EnerBank’s executive team members serve on both community and banking industry boards at these and other organizations.
“Community involvement and employee engagement are very important to EnerBank,” said Charlie Knadler, EnerBank President & CEO. “When employees serve the community through organizations and causes they are passionate about, we know they will be better trained, more productive and more satisfied in both their professional and personal lives.”
One example of EnerBank’s culture of community involvement includes the recently concluded United Way campaign—99 percent of EnerBank employees participated in the campaign, which raised more than $52,000.
EnerBank matches employees’ gifts, “which is a standout attribute among corporations who host employee charitable giving campaigns,” said James Brown, community investment advisor at United Way of Salt Lake. “EnerBank’s match places the company among some of United Way of Salt Lake’s strongest corporate supporters, particularly among medium-sized businesses. We do greatly appreciate all of the employees at EnerBank who trust United Way of Salt Lake with their charitable gift to build up the community.”
In addition to parental and adoption leave and other corporate benefit packages, the Bank provides employee development programs, including a tuition-reimbursement program. In 2015, six employees received bachelor’s degrees through the program, while one received a master’s degree. The company also strives to promote employees to higher positions within the bank—promoting 48 current employees in the past year.
