The Houston Chronicle names PrimeWay Federal Credit Union a winner of the Houston Top Workplaces 2020 Award

HOUSTON, TX (November 17, 2020) — PrimeWay Federal Credit Union was just awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Houston Chronicle. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization.”

Something quite profound occurred during the pandemic at PrimeWay. For two months running, every single employee was recognized as the PrimeWay MVP of the month. The PrimeWay “L.O.V.E. letter,” as it’s called, read in bold lettering on the company intranet homepage: “everyone.” And there it remained completely untouched. That’s PrimeWay in a nutshell. Caring for the team and the members PrimeWay serves is put on full display, everywhere. Did you forget about your two-year anniversary with PrimeWay during the pandemic? PrimeWay didn’t, and they sent you a gift to your front door to remind you. Did you work late for the day and think nobody noticed? Not at PrimeWay – a congratulatory message with Kazoo credits (a currency traded for comradery and appreciation at PrimeWay) was waiting for you the very next day. That’s the difference. A caring, thoughtful atmosphere is evident in theeveryday moments you experience, not just the policies. And as PrimeWay Federal Credit Union CEO, Annette Zimmerman says, that does not just help the bottom line, it is the bottom line: “We believe our culture is what drives the success of our business and our members.”
