Employee Care

Our employees are at the heart of everything we do at North Brookfield Savings Bank and their health and well-being remains to be a major priority. To do our part with practicing social distancing and to proactively limit their exposure to COVID-19, we have implemented some changes to our normal routines to help protect them even further. We will also continue to offer our employees support in various ways below.

  • We recently made the choice to close our lobbies of all locations and to serve our customers through drive-up only. Although we love interacting with our customers, this will limit close, face-to-face interaction experienced by our employees.
  • Employees will work on a two week rotating schedule, with some employees working from home when possible during their scheduled home week. This will limit exposure between our employees, reducing social interaction.
  • We have instructed employees to wear gloves and face masks while performing transactions.
  • We will continue to support all employees with continued pay and benefits during this time. This will remove any chance of financial hardship on our amazing employees.
  • We are connecting daily with our employees to ensure their health, both physical and mental, is remaining strong and healthy.

We have a resilient and dedicated employees at North Brookfield Savings Bank and we thank them for their unwavering commitment to ensuring our customers continue to receive the best absolute service.
