Diverse and Inclusive Workforce

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)

GreenState supports past, present, and future members of the military through its partnership with ESGR. In that spirit, GreenState has signed a statement of support, which denotes the following:

  • We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
  • Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
  • We will continually recognize and support our country's service members and their families in peace, in crises, and in war.

About ESGR

ESGR was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Guard and Reserve component members and their civilian employers. Civilian employers play a critical role in the defense of the nation by complying with existing employment laws protecting the rights of workers who serve in the Reserve component.

Pay for Performance Philosophy

Key principles of the GreenState’s compensation plans

  1. To clearly identify performance objectives and the keys to success
  2. To link compensation to performance in areas that the staff member can influence; and
  3. To reward the staff member for performance that supports the business objectives of GreenState Credit Union.

The credit union adopted a “pay for performance” philosophy in 1999. Pay for performance is a system in which employees attain increased levels of compensation if their team, department, or company reaches specified targets. It has been implemented as a motivational tactic and with an eye to persuade employees to work harder and benefit the cooperative while at the same time providing an added benefit for themselves.
