All-at-once EMV

first_imgFinancial and operational limits pressed most credit unions into rolling out EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) cards to their members over time.And while card processors generally recommend that approach, some credit unions have decided to adopt EMV all at once.Mass reissuance makes sense for some credit unions, says Tom Davis, CSCU’s senior vice president of finance and technology. Those that go that route do so, he says, largely for one of three reasons:They’re killing two birds with one stoneThe reissuance is being done in coordination with another project such as a brand changes from Visa to MasterCard, or significant changes to their loyalty program.They view the counterfeit fraud risk as too greatThe credit union has crunched the numbers and the cost of the reissuance is worth the cost of the potential fraud losses in their portfolio. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

A positive culture matters

first_img continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr When Sunday afternoon rolls around, are you excited, hesitant, or flat-out anxious when you think about your upcoming work week?What if you and your co-workers were all ecstatic—like, jump out of bed and shout for joy excitement—to go back to work on Monday? You can’t wait to see your teammates and greet every member with a smile and a solution. What if you and your team were truly passionate about what you do and who you serve?Creating a positive workplace culture isn’t just about potlucks and jeans on Friday. Those help, but it’s also about the staff being ready and willing to do anything needed to assist members, and their co-workers, for the betterment of the credit union. An attitude of passion and loyalty starts with a unified vision on expectations and results-oriented goals.last_img read more

Rio urges Stones to join United

first_imgRio Ferdinand has urged John Stones to think carefully about his future, suggesting he could become a linchpin in Manchester United’s backline instead of a supporting act for Chelsea. “If he goes to Man United, he plays every week so that’s the right club for him,” Ferdinand is quoted as saying in several national newspapers. “If he goes to Chelsea, he’s not playing every week. He’s at that stage of his development where he wants to play every week. If you say to any young footballer to leave a club to sit on the bench, you’ve got to be a lunatic. You have to be.” The ex-England captain can also see plenty of room for defensive improvements at Old Trafford. “I don’t think (Van Gaal) knows his best defence – that’s a problem in itself,” he said. “Part of the reason he doesn’t know it is because he hasn’t had a chance to watch them all play over a long time – consistently for 12 or 15 games. If you don’t get that familiarity between you as defenders, it’s difficult to build foundations.” Press Associationcenter_img The Everton centre back has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks after the Toffees, who insist he is going nowhere, twice rejected big money bids from Chelsea for the 21-year-old. Jose Mourinho is believed to see the former Barnsley defender as a natural successor to John Terry, but Ferdinand says if he leaves Goodison Park he could get regular football at United. last_img read more
