Winning Years: 2011

Workplace Culture/Continued Opportunities: Full-time employees working 40 hours per week are eligible for tuition reimbursement benefits and certification classes. Those working 20 or more hours per week can participate in online training and in-house classroom training.

Long-service anniversaries are celebrated with announcements, gifts and awards. Employees with 25 or more years of service are rewarded with a monetary gift.

Employees have opportunities to gain new experiences by working on temporary assignments in other departments and on team projects.

Eastern National offers employees with disabilities flexible work policies and procedures to accommodate their unique physical and scheduling needs.

Benefits/Health: Employees working 20 or more hours per week receive individual and family medical coverage, individual and family prescription drug coverage, individual and family vision and dental insurance, as well as long-term disability.

Health benefits for retirees pre-65 include individual and spouse medical and prescription drug coverage and individual and spouse dental coverage.
