The following is sent on behalf of Bill Gettman, CEO:
Everyone reading this is a part of our success at Northern Rivers. In these challenging times, you have worked harder, thought creatively and banded together to help our organization thrive. You are appreciated, and we want you to know it.
Today we are happy to announce what some of you have already heard at our listening tour events—with the approval of our Board of Directors, full- and part-time members of our workforce have received a two-percent salary increase, which will be reflected in your paycheck on Friday, October 13. To be eligible, you must have been employed on September 25, 2017 and must have received a paycheck in 2017. Any questions on eligibility can be directed to your supervisor or leader.
We would not have been able to shoulder this additional $750,000 annual cost without a concerted effort to be more efficient throughout the organization, and we again salute your work in making it possible. On behalf of the Board and the Executive Leadership Team, we thank you for all you do.
