Employee Wellness


At Peoples Bank, we know a happy, healthy employee is a productive employee. That's why we established our employee wellness program - Wholepeople. This program includes a $200 Wellness Reimbursement, paid time off for community service and wellness-related activities, and other benefits designed to promote a healthy mind, body, and community.

The half marathon is something that I would have never considered registering for had it not been for the wellness bonus. For that, I am very thankful to work for a company that offers this bonus as an incentive to improve overall wellness. I am looking forward to training hard over the course of the next month and to hitting the pavement hard.

"I came in like a wrecking ball!"

"I purchased a Slackers Ninjaline kit, ladder, and wheel this weekend. Both of my boys will be using this equipment for their health and my laughter!"

"I used my Wellness money for walking shoes to keep me comfortable when I roamed around in Sweden!"

"My Wellness money was used to register for my first ever half-marathon!"

"My Wellness money was used to purchase a smart watch."

Commitment to Community Service

Our investment in people extends to our local communities through our Community Giving programs which encourages employee volunteerism by providing opportunities for civic involvement and paid time off.

"Nothing brings me greater joy or understanding of the goodness in my own life than through volunteer service and reaching out to those in my community. Last year I helped coordinate a baby-needs drive for our local food bank. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of my co-workers and our Executive Team. Nothing describes the community connection I felt delivering and stocking their shelves with diapers, wipes, formula, cereal, and Pedialyte, along with cash."
