Credit Union West named a ‘Top Company to Work for in Arizona’ for tenth year in a row
GLENDALE, AZ (August 3, 2022) — Once again, Credit Union West has been recognized as a ‘Top Company to Work for in Arizona’ by Arizona Capitol Times and BestCompaniesAZ. This marks the tenth straight year the credit union has received the prestigious award based on employee survey results. ‘Top Companies’ has recognized the state’s best employers since it was first announced in 2013.
“We’re so proud to be celebrating our tenth year as a ‘Top Company to Work for in Arizona,’” said Karen Roch, President and CEO of Credit Union West. “We believe Credit Union West’s workplace culture begins with how we support our employees so that they can give superior service to our members. We value the important employee feedback that this survey provides and continue to adapt our employee benefits to enhance their quality of life.”
Employee role satisfaction was ranked highly favorable with respondents in this year’s survey results. The credit union, however, is always looking for ways to improve. As a response to last year’s survey, Credit Union West instated an extra paid day off for all employees for their work anniversaries. The credit union also raised their minimum starting pay to help offset the rising cost of living to $20 per hour, nearly 25% higher than the national average. In 2022, the organization added the Volunteer Time Off Program. VTO offers full and part-time employees paid time off for volunteering to support a local non-profit of their choosing.
“Our employees view Credit Union West as a collaborative place to work that values their feedback,” said Roch. “Our commitment to being one of the best places to work allows us to attract and retain top talent to support our hire-to-retire philosophy.”
Credit Union West is currently hiring for multiple positions at their corporate office and branch locations. For more information and to apply, go to cuwest.org/careers.
