As our days get busier and busier, one thing remains constant, our family. MSB encourages employees to have a healthy work/life balance and Family Flex Time is just one way we are making that happen!
Meet Laura King. In the past, Laura has worked for companies who would not dream of letting an employee take additional paid time off, so when she learned that she had an extra 16 paid hours to spend with family, she knew that celebrating the upcoming holidays just got a little easier!
When Laura learned that her husband Jake, who is a merchant marine, would be working both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, she knew that their typical holiday traveling was off the schedule! Using her Family Flex Time, Laura, Jake and their three children will be celebrating the holiday festivities, although earlier, together.
"I am very proud of my husband for the sacrifices he makes for our family. He took the job in order to provide the best life he could for us. And now, I work for a company who rewards families to spend time together. It's a win-win situation!" Laura's story is just one example of how Machias Savings Bank shows that our employees are the heart of who we are and their happiness is a top priority!
