    Hi,

    As the Business Development Officer for Commsave, one of my main roles is to help promote our organisation and make potential members aware of the services we have on offer to them. I believe one of the best ways to communicate this information is with the help of Managers, Team Leaders and Personnel responsible for employees and their welfare.

    When staff are pre-occupied with financial worries, work may become inefficient, causing your company’s performance to suffer. Even workers in relatively well-paid industries, often have low levels of savings and lack financial resilience. Savings schemes increase the number of workers who can benefit and maximise the number of households able to build financial resilience by saving through their payroll.

    Commsave exists to provide excellent services for our members, with products tailor made for their needs. The primary objectives of a credit union are to promote sound financial management and encourage people to save and avoid high cost debt. When they borrow, they can pay the loan off from their payroll deductions and continue to save at the same time, giving them more options in the future when faced with unexpected expenses.

    As you may be aware, Royal Mail employees are currently our biggest membership, however it has come to my attention that there are still a number of employees that do not know of Commsave Credit Union and are unsure of what we offer. We would like to help Managers and Team leaders find a solution to encourage financial mindfulness of their employees by helping them to learn healthy financial behaviours and to build financial resilience.

    We would love the opportunity to come and speak to your group.

    Kind Regards
    Caterina Angieri
