Does this sound familiar?
Wake up, stumble through the motions to start the day, grab something to eat (and of course a cup of coffee), out the door, into work and now we are ready to face the day and tackle whatever comes our way. Right??
In the Human Resources profession, we know that each day holds a new challenge for you. Your employees bring their personal issues to work with them in one way or another. It may be the news of a new baby, or child who has aged out of health care coverage. You might also see it show up in their attitudes or their use of PTO or maybe in their payroll deposit choices or as a distraction that keeps them from working safely. At CPM, we want to be a resource for you when employees bring financial challenges to work with them. Here a few ways that we can carry some of your load.
Free financial seminars - Includes a wide range of current topics like budgeting, financial freedom, credit reports, and many more. These seminars make a great addition to wellness initiatives.
Everyone gets a checking account - We created a custom account option called Essentials Checking for folks who cannot obtain a checking account at a bank. This account gives them all the basics, without a lot of fuss. It’s a great alternative.
Emergency savings with a match - CPM will match a $25 deposit into this savings account. Our MyWay account encourages savings for emergencies or the future by helping employees get started.
Expatriate services - CPM has created a lending policy that allows expats to get a jumpstart with credit cards, auto loans and possibly a mortgage. It can be quite difficult for expats to find these services with no US credit. Bottom line - expats are impotant to your business, so they are important to us.
Great rates, lower fees - At CPM there are no stockholders or board members to pay. That’s how we can offer lower loan rates and higher dividends. We work for our members to help them achieve their financial goals and dreams.
Locally Grown since 1955! Like all credit unions, CPM Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit cooperative that's owned and controlled by the people it serves. That means earnings stay right here in South Carolina and go right back to our members with better rates, lower fees, and better products and service. CPM Federal Credit Union strives to be a resource to help HR Professionals handle whatever life and your employees throw your way. Membership in CPM Federal Credit Union is an important employee benefit - and it doesn't cost your business a dime!
