WASHINGTON, DC (September 1, 2021) — PAHO/WHO Federal Credit Union (PAHO/WHO FCU) has been named one of the American Banker’s Best Credit Unions to Work For®. American Banker has recognized credit unions that not only demonstrate their commitment to the communities they serve, but also credit unions that excel in providing a quality workplace for employees.
PAHO/WHO FCU’s commitment to support professional development of its employees, its practice of closing quarterly on Wednesday afternoons to allow for fun, team building activities and that the Credit Union provides paid time off for staff to volunteer in the community and offer support to non-profit organizations were a few of the reasons for the recognition.
“We are honored by the recognition and are grateful for the support of our Board of Directors and the commitment of our employees.” said Miguel Boluda, Jr., CEO of PAHO/WHO FCU. “It’s our mission to help members of the global health community live better, healthier financial lives and our Board and employees exemplify that in everything we do.”
In total, 55 credit unions were named as Best Credit Unions to Work For. PAHO/WHO FCU was ranked 31st overall and 11th in their asset category. The full Best Credit Unions to Work For list is available online.
The award process began with Best Companies Group reviewing employers’ benefits and workplace policies and practices, followed by extensive employee surveys. In addition to work environment, benefits and employee perks, many of this year’s winners have been recognized for how they’ve supported employees throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
