Partner Colorado Credit Union Fosters a Culture of Caring Through Leave Sharing Program

Arvada, CO, May 02, 2019 --( Partner Colorado Credit Union now allows employees to donate their paid time off (PTO) to fellow co-workers experiencing a crisis who do not have enough leave time of their own.

Also known as leave-sharing, this employer-sponsored program enables a Partner Colorado employee with accrued time off to donate their time to a co-worker with a severe health crisis, pregnancy, or other qualifying circumstances. The credit union determines in advance what situations qualify for the program. Once approved, the employee who has run out of paid leave time, but needs time off, can use a co-worker’s PTO to manage their absence.

“We think donating PTO time among employees underscores the values of our credit union and fosters a real culture of caring,” said Dana Zamora, Partner Coloado Vice President of HR and Training. “Recently, one of our employees was hospitalized for pneumonia, and another needed time off for cancer treatments. Although both had exhausted their own PTO, they could focus on getting well, because paid time off was there for them to use, due to the support and generosity of their co-workers.”
