Beach vacation Making time for downtime is essential to employee wellness.

Credit unions must continually envision ways to innovate and improve member service to survive and thrive in this complex and changing talent and strategic execution environment. At stake is the ability to attract and retain members and also to attract and retain talented employees. Innovation that improves the engagement and productivity of the workforce serves both goals. The impulse to compete through encouraging longer and harder work by employees, however, can produce the opposite effect by diminishing productivity and creativity.
