Glasgow Credit Union have announced a new addition to their Employer Partner scheme – one of Scotland’s largest media companies, STV Glasgow.
STV Glasgow staff can now access Glasgow Credit Union’s innovative loan and savings products via salary deduction. Staff contribute to their savings account direct from their salary, and can access exclusive member only loans and mortgage products.
Lorna Kelly, Compensation and Benefits Manager at STV said, “We are continually looking at ways to enhance our employee benefits offering to ensure that we continue to attract and retain staff and talent of the highest calibre. We were impressed by the full suite of financial products available from Glasgow Credit Union and are pleased to provide our staff with the opportunity to save directly from their salary.”
June Walker, Glasgow Credit Union Chief Executive said, “Our employer partner scheme has been helping local people manage their finances and minimising financial stress in the workforce for over 26 years. With over 90 employer partners across the G postcode we have over 52,000 employees that can benefit from access to our low cost loans, mortgages and savings products, and just last year we also delivered 115 financial workshops to workers in the area. We welcome all businesses within the city to take advantage of our free service.”
And there has never been a better time to think about offering credit union services to the workforce. A recent report from YouGov highlights that 32% of workers think about their finances at work, admitting they find it difficult to concentrate on the job in hand when facing financial stress, and 22% state that their productivity has been affected. A further 23% admit their financial outlook has interfered with their work.

Profits are shared annually between members. All companies operating from within a G postcode can become an employer partner.
