Hey! We did it again! For the second year in a row we get to send out a press release like this:
"September 23rd, 2019 Marshfield, Wisconsin – For the second consecutive year, Simplicity CU has been named one of the Best Credit Unions to Work For in the United States by Credit Union Journal.
'It’s gratifying to be recognized among our peer group for the second year in a row.', says Katy Zaleski, VP of Human Resources, 'We’ve always believed in treating people well and helping them grow and that’s a key reason we’re able to recruit and maintain such a remarkable team.'
As of September 2019, there are more than 6000 Credit Unions in the United States. In partnership with Best Companies Group, Credit Union Journal ranks the top 50 in areas like Workplace Culture and Employee Retention. This year, Simplicity CU ranked 7th in their asset size and 25th nationwide in the annual Credit Union Journal survey.
It’s no surprise to the Simplicity CU Team that employee benefits, equitable policies, and solid HR practices make for a healthy work environment, but that’s not the whole story. In fact, those things only make up 25% of the possible score. The other 75% of a Credit Union’s score came from a confidential employee survey that weighed employee’s feelings about topics like recognition and employee appreciation, unique perks of the job, fun in the workplace, and why they love to work for their employer.
Simplicity CU team members have a number of reasons to enjoy their jobs including monthly after-business-hours employee networking ‘yappy hour’ events, yearly ‘Stay View’ employee interviews focused on employee retention, and themed dress-up days."
Sure, you might be saying, it’s nice to know that Simplicity CU is a great place to work, but what’s in it for us, your members and fans?
Fair question, friend, and we have an answer! People that feel challenged, rewarded, and valued at work are happy people. Yes, we have tough days now and then, but because we believe in what we do and we know that Simplicity CU believes in us, we’re not just happy, we’re committed to being great. And when we’re working our hardest to be better every day, you get the best service, the most innovative ideas, and, in general, a whole lot more awesome from your credit union.
And you know what? That’s exactly what you deserve
