Granite State Credit Union continues to experience the same staffing challenges as most businesses around the state. Despite our enhanced recruiting efforts and conducting surveys to ensure we offer competitive wages and benefits, one of our top challenges continues to be recruiting enough staff to support our current branch lobby hours. Following extensive analysis of branch transactions, we have made the decision to adjust our branch lobby hours as follows:
2022 was a year that brought many challenges: a continuing pandemic, a rapidly rising rate environment and staffing shortages resulting from a tight labor
market. GSCU met these challenges head on, taking strategic actions to continue full service operations throughout our branch network and pivot services to meet members needs in this changing environment.
We recognize the recent news of bank failures may prompt questions about the fiscal health of Granite State Credit Union.
Granite State Credit Union remains safe and sound with sufficient liquidity to fund member loan and withdrawal needs.
It’s that time a year again when we often set goals, or resolutions, as we plan ahead for what’s to come! While historically many of our resolutions may fall to the wayside, I want to remind each of you that GSCU is here to help you meet your financial goals throughout your lives. Why not make 2023 the year that GSCU helps those financial resolutions stick all year!
It’s been a busy year in an economy that has presented challenges for the credit union and its members alike. From gas prices rising, housing inventory hitting new lows, and rates increasing dramatically, it’s been a whirlwind of economic ups and downs and we anticipate more to come as we approach 2023.
Sunshine, warmth, summer vacations, ice cream, and all the little things that make this time of year so amazing are finally here! While summer is our busiest time at the credit union, it is also one of the most wonderful times because we get to do so many fun things for our members, communities, and in our own lives as well!
In 2021, GSCU continued to navigate challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic and its impact upon business operations across all industries. With a comprehensive business contingency plan in place, GSCU ensured that branch drive-ups remained open to serve our members’ needs. And GSCU also realized tremendous growth, new opportunities and positive trends this past year!
We’re heading into our busy season at the credit union and I am excited that we are doing so with open lobbies, some great new staff, and awesome opportunities for our members!
While drive-up only service allowed us to remain open throughout the last few months, even with staffing difficulties, we are happy to have so many new team members joining the credit union and helping us welcome you back at each of our locations. Thank you to our members for your patience as we navigated these challenging times. Please stop by to say hello to our staff, hear about new opportunities, and complete your banking needs in-branch once again.
2021 was a challenging yet exciting year. We appreciate your membership and support as we continue to look ahead to 2022 and beyond.
I want to thank you for your patience and kindness towards our staff during 2021 as we managed some challenges caused by COVID-19.
I love Fall. I have to be stopped from decorating for Halloween at the end of August. I really enjoy the crisp mornings, pumpkins, autumn décor, and coziness of the season. The changing of seasons isn’t the only reason I love this time of year. It’s also my favorite time at the credit union.
