Our Guiding Principles

There are five Guiding Principles on which our Mission Statement is based:

  • We believe in long term success, operating as a safe, sound and stable institution. Long term success is dependent upon profits, but never will profit seeking compromise our mission.
  • We believe in satisfying the wants and needs of our customers. Satisfaction is dependent upon a continual improvement of our service, products, systems, and operations.
  • We believe our employees are our most valuable asset. Our employees will be provided with a work environment which is “the best in town.”
  • We believe our decisions should enhance ESSA's value. Enhanced value is achieved through quality earnings, growth, and strong management practices.
  • We believe in supporting our community through employee volunteering and charitable giving to improve the quality of life. The ESSA Bank & Trust Foundation has been established to support this principle.
