CUNA has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The Wisconsin State Journal. This is the third time CUNA has received this honor.
The list is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, an employee engagement and workplace improvement research firm.
“At CUNA, we strive to create an inclusive work culture that supports our people and reflects our organizational values and the ‘people helping people’ philosophy of the credit union movement,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “What makes this recognition rewarding is that it’s our own employees telling us they see that effort, and it’s making a difference.”
About 1,500 Madison-area companies were nominated by their employees, and CUNA is listed among the top 5% of employers. Organizations of all sizes participated in the survey, which measured key drivers of engaged cultures such as leadership, strong values, clear direction, and motivated workers.
“How we work and collaborate has changed so rapidly in the last few years that it’s required all of us to pay even more attention to employee well-being and ensure we don’t leave anyone behind,” said CUNA EVP/Chief Operating Officer Jill Tomalin. “We have a mission-driven work culture to help credit unions advance financial well-being for all, and we’ve always believed that mission is only successful if it starts at home with our own employees. For these reasons, this recognition feels especially validating for CUNA.”
Nussle spoke to the Wisconsin State Journal on CUNA's culture in 2021.
