Benefits

Benefits that Count

We offer the benefits that large banks just can’t: flexibility, competitive salaries and bonus structure, and limitless opportunities to grow your job into a career in a vibrant and
dynamic community like Bonnyville or Cold Lake.

Fixed compensation:

Nobody works in a vacuum. There are many different factors that determine a salary, and they can change on a dime. Our highly competitive salary structure is reviewed every year to make sure that your salary makes sense at home and across Alberta.

Variable compensation:

Together, we do better. It’s as simple as that. With our Variable Bonus Program, we consider our corporate and your personal goals to help our organization grow. This year, our bonus target is 10%, but together we can hit as high as 15%!

Lakeland Credit Union Retirement savings plan:

Your golden years will live up to their name when you join Lakeland Credit Union. We can help you plan for the retirement of your dreams with an employee RRSP (starting at 3%) and employer matching Deferred Profit Sharing Program.

RRSP deposits/term deposits:

We can offer you a bonus rate on RRSP or Term Investments over $500 that are invested for at least one year.

Personal bank accounts:

Get the right start. LCU employees are entitled one free personal chequing and savings account.

Mastercard®:

At Lakeland Credit Union, we encourage the wise use of credit, and so Lakeland staff may apply for a Mastercard® at a preferred interest rate.

Staff loans, terms, and rates:

Every little bit helps. We get that, and under specified guidelines, you are entitled to a preferred borrowing interest rate for certain lending products including your mortgage or vehicle – interests savings that really add up fast!

Health and wellness policy:

You can’t take care of members unless you take care of yourself! That’s why LCU supplements the cost of activities, fitness classes and more to help you live a healthy, active, and productive lifestyle.

 


Group benefits:

Life happens. When you join the team here and trouble comes your way, we’ve got you covered. You won’t have to worry about: Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, Life Insurance, Extended Health and Dental are the standard benefits for our staff.

Employee assistant program:

We do better when each one of our members feels great about themselves. If you need some help to get yourself back on track, this confidential service provides support from personal wellness to relationships to nutrition and everything in between.

Volunteer program:

Giving back to our community is a core value of our business, and we couldn’t be prouder of our Community Investment Program where we support a variety of community organizations.  We’ve supported the community with over $120,000 in 2016 alone. Additionally, we provide grants to the charitable organizations supported by our very own staff, who in fiscal 2016, volunteered a total of 4,055 hours.

Care Wear:

Nearly $80,000. That’s how much we’ve donated  across the Lakeland with our Care Wear initiative. Our staff members pay $2 per week to wear jeans and a Care Wear shirt on Fridays, and every 6 months we vote on where that money goes. Numerous local organizations have benefited from this unique program since the inception in 2006.

Transforming Your Job into a Career

Training and education:

LCU offers training in the financial industry to encourage the growth and professional development of all staff.

Staff team atmosphere:

Our benefits mean nothing if you don’t like where you work. That’s why we nurture a positive and thriving atmosphere with staff social events all year long. Our staff members also have the privilege of attending LCU sponsored community events. When was the last time your boss gave you free passes to golf tournaments, or even tickets to premier community fundraising events?
