A standard PPO plan is also available as an alternative to a high deductible plan. Vision coverage is offered through Cigna. Dental coverage is offered through Delta Dental of Washington. Coverage for dependents is also offered with a portion of the cost covered by the Credit Union.

All full-time employees receive at least 15 vacation days and 12 paid sick days each year. Vacation amounts increase with tenure. We also offer paid holidays in accordance with the Federal Reserve calendar and after 90 days of employment, all employees receive one (1) additional floating holiday each year.

Salal provides a 401(k) plan for employees that allows pre-tax and post-tax (Roth) contributions. After six months of employment, Salal will match 50% of contributions, up to 4% of pay.

Our brand values embody the things we care about most as an organization. They provide the driving force behind our brand, our business, our behaviors, and our decisions.  We are bold.

We are measured, making sound decisions rooted in judgment. We are tenacious and have the grit and ingenuity to accomplish a goal. We are advocates. We practice empathy, celebrate diversity, and value our partnerships. These values guide our work culture, which sees diversity, inclusion, employee wellness, and career growth opportunities as keys to our success.
