As the company continues to grow, adding new staff and positions, Roch said it’s important to maintain a positive and interactive environment that encourages transparency and honesty. “At Credit Union West, our culture focuses on ‘A Great Place to Work for Great People’,” she said. “We strive to be an employer of choice through employee engagement, integrity, and encouraging a supportive working atmosphere that sets us apart from traditional work environments.”

Credit Union West offers an array of employee benefits, including comprehensive medical and dental insurance, an employer-matched 401(k) plan, tuition reimbursement and an employee bonus program. To give back to the community, the company sponsors many local events and non-profit charities that are selected by the employees.

Every year, they hold an off-site employee appreciation event where they recognize the staff’s hard work and dedication with a day of fun and team building. “Receiving the Top Companies Award for five consecutive years is a great honor,” Roch said. “It shows that we are committed to the overall personal and professional development of our employees while providing unique benefits, educational support, and recognition for achievements.”
