People’s Trust FCU Relaunches Employee Credit Program

Peoples Trust program

People’s Trust, a Financial Cooperative, has revamped their Employee Credit Program for 2017. Back and better than ever, the program is offering a fresh new take on their original program mission, including a new name: the People’s Trust Promise.

People’s Trust unveiled the People’s Trust Promise to their members during their Annual Meeting of Membership event on April 29. “Its purpose is to reengage employees, fulfill our Happy Un-Banking mission, engage our members, and increase awareness of People’s Trust within the communities we serve,” said VP of Marketing and Education Jessica Smith.

People’s Trust employees are promising to take 2,500 actions in 2017 by boosting their involvement in the established initiatives of advocacy, community, wellness, and education. Employees’ collaborative promise consists of strengthening their Happy Un-Banking mission by making a bigger impact on the future of credit unions, dedicating more time to community outreach and support, increasing their health and well-being, and continuing their education to better serve their members.

Members also have an opportunity to contribute to the movement. People’s Trust already involves the community in their mission by conducting free financial literacy workshops and seminars, shred days, and the Member Activation Program. People’s Trust will build on member involvement by inviting members to volunteer, host wellness seminars, and take on several other “promising” actions. With the help of their members, People’s Trust is vowing to increase their Promise from 2,500 to 3,000 credits before year’s end.

People’s Trust employees have activated their promises by participating in their first group volunteer event of the year. On March 25, People’s Trust employees earned Promise credits by volunteering at the Houston ToolBank, a community-based organization. Volunteer activities included painting tools, labeling supplies, and filling disaster-relief bags.
