CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Third Federal Savings and Loan is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year in grand style. Recently, the company hosted associates and their guests to special celebrations in both Ohio and Florida. In addition to a night of food and entertainment, associates were rewarded with surprise financial gifts at each event.
At the Florida event in May, Third Federal awarded an after-tax bonus of $1,080 to all associates. The bonus was announced at the conclusion of the company’s anniversary event in Naples, Fl.
At its Cleveland-area 80th anniversary celebration last night, Marc A. Stefanski, chairman and CEO, hosted associates and their guests for an evening of food and fun. The event, which featured dinner at the Cleveland Museum of Art and entertainment at Severance Hall, culminated with all Third Federal associates receiving a $1,000 increase to their salary. The 2018 increase in their salary will be paid in full this week so the associates can immediately enjoy the benefits.
“Rewarding our associates and investing in their financial well-being is one of the many reasons why we enjoy a 3% annual associate turnover rate, one of the lowest in the industry,” Stefanski said. “Providing these benefits is a special way to celebrate our 80th anniversary. We’re happy to recognize our associates’ hard work and dedication by passing on the savings from the recent corporate tax reform.”
In addition to these special anniversary year bonuses, Third Federal associates enjoy a variety of financial benefits, including semi-annual bonuses, financial rewards for participating in the company commit to fit program, a 401k plan with company matching funds, and a generous annual associate stock ownership plan contribution.
