New vacation PTO policy; work anniversaries and more

In our continual effort to offer a robust, comprehensive offering of benefits to our employees, Elm has revamped its vacation policy. We’re excited to introduce increased PTO based on tenure as well as the options to rollover & cash out unused PTO. Please click HERE to read more.

This new policy goes into effect for 2024 & new vacation accruals can be found in your Checkwriters account.

Congratulations to the following employees celebrating a work anniversary in January:

Please give a warm welcome to the following new hires at Elm!

Elm Gives Back Collection Boxes

We have placed donation boxes at each of our locations & will promote a monthly Elm Gives Back opportunity for employees to bring items in for. Employee Steve Plasse suggested this way of giving back saying, “Charity is an all-year need, and this makes it convenient for everyone to give.”

This month’s donation collection is for Quinsigamond Community College in Marlborough, MA. Housing- and food-insecure students are in need of pancake mix, syrup, cereal, cake mix, & personal hygiene items (deodorant, soap, shampoo, razors, etc.) for men & women. They will also gladly accept nonperishables such as shelf-stable milk, soups, pasta, sauce, mac & cheese.

Bring your donation into an Elm branch & then click HERE to give us your name & be entered into a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
