The Best Credit Unions to Work For
These credit unions make being the best look easy.
This year 50 institutions made Credit Union Journal’s annual ranking of the Best Credit Unions to Work For, a project done in partnership with Best Companies Group. Credit unions on the list range in size from just 31 staff members and under $200 million in assets all the way up to institutions with billions in assets and thousands of employees.
But all of them go out of their way to take care of their workers. Many offer additional healthcare options, such as annual biometric screenings, access to physicians’ services over the phone and regular wellness fairs.
Other management teams focus on communication with open door policies and biweekly conference calls to keep staff informed. One credit union even hosted an event modeled after the television show “Shark Tank,” where employees could pitch ideas to the leadership team.
And some institutions focus on fun with perks such as ice cream socials, granting the holiday wishes of their coworkers and celebrating National Cookie Day with free treats.
