Kalsee Employee Empowerment Program

Kalsee's Employee Empowerment Program (KEEP)


Let us help you KEEP your employees.

As a business, your #1 strength is your people. And financially stable employees become a dependable workforce. We believe in building relationships and cultivating financial wellness. And we’ll work with your team members as their financial partner and coach via on site or online group presentations and one-on-one coaching, helping solve problems and create solutions so that they can focus on what matters, at no cost to your company or employees. Our KEEP program started in 2019, and we now work with 30 employers in the area to make their work place a platform for financial wellness through our KEEP program.

  • Financial wellness group presentations on topics like budgeting, credit scores, loan basics, and more.
    • Lunch and learns
    • New hire orientations
    • Online sessions
  • Individual financial coaching
    • On site or online
  • Account opening and loan applications
  • Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

For people struggling with bad credit, payday lending, consistently overdrawn accounts, delinquent loans, wage garnishments, and more, our Aspire Financial Counseling helps your team member gain control of their finances through budgeting, automated saving, and credit education. Learn more about Aspire.

Life is unpredictable. And when it hits hard, we’re here. Our affordable, simple #LifeHappens loans help your team members and their families face challenges head-on:

  • Medical / Dental & Braces / Vision
  • Pet Health
  • Home Energy / Improvement / Emergency
  • Auto Repair
  • Funeral

For team members facing a hardship who may not qualify for other borrowing options, an Employer Resource Network (ERN) loan with success coaching may help. Learn more about the ERN.

Do you offer a high deductible health plan? Empower your team to save for health care expenses with tax benefits and the ease of a debit card and online bill pay.
