BHFCU recognized as top workplace with two award wins

RAPID CITY, SD (July 27, 2023) — Black Hills Federal Credit Union (BHFCU) recently received two awards from the national employer recognition program Top Workplaces. BHFCU was recognized with a Culture of Excellence award in the category of Compensation & Benefits and an industry award in the Financial Services category for 2023.

“As a Human Resource professional, people are my passion. Working for an organization like BHFCU that shares that passion and takes it to the next level is rare and impactful,” said August Hicks, Human Resources Manager. “We were excited to learn of our Top Workplaces awards, and hear this same sentiment echoed through the words of our staff. Knowing the culture award is based solely on staff feedback makes it even more meaningful.”

Survey results also highlighted that BHFCU employees feel genuinely appreciated, see strong values at work, and believe their managers care about their concerns.
