Making money work harder with whg and Walsave
Published by kerri smith for whg in Housing and also in Communities
whg colleagues were given the opportunity to save for a rainy day with Walsave Credit Union and dozens signed up on the spot.
Expert advisers invited whg colleagues to have a confidential and free discussion about savings accounts and other services available. Many opened a savings account for themselves or their children and grandchildren and others took information and advice away to consider.
The not-for-profit financial co-operative visited whg’s Walsall office at 100 Hatherton Street on Tuesday 15th and Thursday 17th May.
The roadshows were organised for colleagues to support one of whg’s five corporate aims, ‘Become a stronger, more efficient business that is a great place to work’.
whg’s other aims in its Altogether Better corporate plan include delivering services that delight customers; creating great homes and neighbourhoods; strengthening local communities through partnership working and growing through ambition, innovation and collaboration.
Jane Preece, whg Director of Organisational Development, said: “This was a great opportunity for colleagues to find out about high quality, low cost financial services on their doorstep through Walsave and whg, both not-for-profit organisations.
“I’m pleased so many made the most of it and that we were able to support our local credit union by increasing the number of savers. A growing membership helps Walsave continue its worthy cause of helping those in need through the offer of affordable loans too.”
140 whg colleagues are now members of Walsave, which has branches in High Street, Bloxwich, and at Walsall Council House. It offers a range of savings accounts - including for children - budgeting advice, insurance and loans from £50 to £10,000.
