We recognize our associates’ hard work and dedication – which is why we strive to reward them with competitive compensation plans and an excellent benefits package that includes the following:
Group Health Benefits
True success comes from within, and a healthy mind and body are essential to one’s efficiency and general well being. We provide a generous health benefit package as well as a variety of voluntary medical benefits.
We offer a plan through UnitedHealthcare. Coverage in the network is paid at 80%. Out of network coverage is paid at 60%.
We also offer a 4-tier formulary prescription drug plan. Associates who also take advantage of the mail-order option can obtain maintenance medication at a special discount.
Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Eastern Savings Bank offers medical care and dependent care (child or elderly) Flexible Spending Accounts. The FSA plan is a tax-advantaged way to pay for certain medical and/or dependent care expenses.
Bank Paid Life Insurance
All regular full-time associates are eligible for Bank-paid life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance coverage at an amount equal to their salary up to a maximum of $100,000.
In addition to our medical benefits, Eastern Savings Bank offers a great selection of voluntary benefits. Associates may choose to participate in our dental, vision, supplemental life insurance, and legal benefits plans.
Eastern Savings Bank is pleased to offer a pre – and – post tax 401(k) savings plan to all regular full or part-time associates who meet the eligibility requirements. Associates may contribute any percentage of their total compensation to the plan up to the annual deferral amount limit as set forth by federal regulations. In addition, the Bank matches one half of the first 5% of our Associates’ contributions.
Discretionary Time Off Benefits
Eastern Savings Bank recognizes the importance of vacation time as providing an opportunity for rest, relaxation, and recreation. Associates with less than five years of service may earn 80 hours of vacation. Associates with five to ten years of employment may earn 120 hours of vacation, and will continue to accrue additional vacation time every five years after that! Part-time associates are eligible for vacation leave after one year of employment. Vacation hours accrue proportionate to the number of regular hours actually worked.
Full-time associates accrue up to five sick days per year (or 1.54 hours per biweekly pay based on an 80-hour pay period). Accrual begins on the first day of employment; however, associates are not permitted to use accrued sick leave until they have completed 90 days of employment beginning on the hire date.
Part-time associates are eligible for sick leave after one year of employment. Sick hours accrue proportionate to the number of hours worked at the rate of 1.54 hours per biweekly pay. Accrual begins on the associate’s first anniversary date.
The Bank provides paid time off for personal reasons, such as scheduling medical and/or other appointments, observing religious/ethnic holidays, arriving to work late or not at all due to inclement weather, or for other personal business.
Eastern Savings Bank takes pride in promoting the importance of living a healthy lifestyle! We offer a Wellness program through our medical plan, an annual Health Fair that includes a flu vaccination clinic, an Employee Assistance Program (6 free sessions), a “wellness room” at our corporate headquarters and a host of other health-related perks and programs.
Career Development/Training/Unlimited Opportunity
We foster the growth and development of our associates, and we take pride in offering continuing career development and training within each department as well as giving associates the opportunity to attend external seminars and training classes.
In recognition of the long-range contribution that additional job-related education can make to the Bank, and as a means of assisting associates develop their skills and improve their performance, the Bank has established a tuition reimbursement program. Reimbursement is subject to management approval and based on the grade received for each course taken.
