INDIANAPOLIS (5/6/14)--Four Indiana credit unions were listed in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce's 100 Best Places to Work, and the CEO of award-winning Purdue FCU said the honor is meaningful to the credit union and to potential employees.
In a Sunday interview on "Inside INdiana Business," Bob Falk, CEO of the $793 million-asset credit union, said he asks new employees how they heard about the credit union and if they knew it was on the list.
"Almost every single one of them says, 'Yeah, I checked the list,'" Falk said. "I say good for you for going to a company that really has these kinds of standards."
Purdue FCU, West Lafayette, earned the No. 1 ranking in the medium-company category for 75-249 employees. Eli Lilly FCU, Indianapolis, with $1.03 billion in assets came in at No. 2, and Financial Center FCU, Indianapolis, with $496 million in assets, was No. 9. Earlier this year, Financial Center FCU was ranked No. 3 in Workplace-Dynamics' Top Workplaces in Central Indiana for the third timeIndianapolis Star April 14).
In Best Places' large-company category--250-999 employees--$931 million-asset FORUM CU, Fishers, ranked No. 3.
The Best Places organizations were determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys.
"This is a tremendous honor for these credit unions, for their employees and for the 294,000 members they serve collectively," said Indiana Credit Union League President John McKenzie. "Their commitment to providing a positive environment and career opportunities for their staff members is impressive."
Falk said, "What I tell my employees about this every year is we do this because they want us to do this. Why not be the best employer? Why not strive to be the best there is?
"It means everything to us," he added.
