Welcome to Your Business Blog!

Welcome to Your Business Blog!

We are celebrating our 150th Anniversary this year and we want to share that with you. We’ve acquired a lot of knowledge over the years and one of the things that has made Union Savings Bank so successful and stable is our ability to have all the products and services that the big banks offer, coupled with local business expertise and knowledge of our area’s unique attributes. We’ve leveraged that knowledge and local expertise over the years so that today, we’re currently helping over 10,000 businesses just like yours be successful.

So as we celebrate 150 years of being a strong local community bank and partner for local businesses, we want to share that knowledge!

Welcome to our new Business Blog, which we’ve launched with a focus on key areas of interest to you as a business owner. Our goal is to be a trusted business partner – not just a financial one – who can provide resources to help you make sound business, decisions to help you and your business grow and succeed. Some of the topics we plan to cover include:
•Acquiring and managing capital – loans, lines of credit, treasury management
•Hiring and retaining good talent
•Hiring an accountant vs. online bookkeeping software
•Improving time management by focusing on what matters most
•Measuring and improving customer experience and retention
•Using the right mix of marketing, advertising, and social media
•Defining the unique needs of business owners when saving for retirement
•Managing employee 401(k) and pension plans
•Reducing security risks – identity theft, fraud and scams

But this isn’t just our blog. It’s your blog, too. If there’s something that you would like us to cover, send us a note and let us know what other topics interest you. It doesn’t have to pertain to banking and finance; it could be any issue you’re wrestling with as a business owner. Our intent is to build a wealth of information and to create a unique resource for you and the western Connecticut business community. Because we all succeed when you succeed.

We’d love to hear from you and hope you enjoy the blog!

Kind Regards,

Cindy Merkle
President and CEO
