The Detroit Free Press names Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union a five-time winner of the Michigan 2017 Top Workplaces Award
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI (November 7, 2017) — Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Detroit Free Press, now for the fifth year in a row. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“We are both proud of and humbled by earning this designation now for five consecutive years,” says Pete Gates, CEO of Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union. “For our team members, this is recognition of our focus on working together toward achieving strategic targets. More importantly, for members, that means we are able to help more members realize more of their own goals and maintain financial well-being,” Gates adds.
“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
MSGCU plans to celebrate five times with its team members, in gratitude for their dedication and hard work over the past five winning years, 2013-2017. MSGCU has 325 team members, 14 branches, more than 117,000 members and growing daily.
