OAK RIDGE, TN (April 10, 2024) — Y-12 Credit Union has announced today that it is a 2024 Top Workplaces CULTURE EXCELLENCE winner, receiving designations in all five categories. Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces, determines the awards. The Top Workplaces program has a 17-year history of surveying and celebrating people-first organizations nationally and across 60 regional markets.

Top Workplaces Culture Excellence awards recognize organizations that excel in specific areas of workplace culture:

INNOVATION celebrates organizations that have embedded innovation into their culture and create an environment where new ideas come from all employees.

WORK-LIFE FLEXIBILITY recognizes organizations that offer their employees options regarding how and where they work and have managers who care for their employees’ concerns.

COMPENSATION & BENEFITS awards organizations that provide employees with material rewards and appreciation for their work.

LEADERSHIP acknowledges organizations whose leaders inspire confidence in their employees by equipping them with knowledge and resources to meet customer/member needs.

PURPOSE & VALUE honors organizations that efficiently and consistently embed their mission and values into all aspects of workplace culture.

Y-12 Credit Union Chief People Officer Lynn Boston shared how the Credit Union’s intentional culture methodology sets their organization apart. “Our formula for success within our workplace environment stems from our leadership’s commitment to innovation, engagement, understanding, and appreciation of the unique qualities of our team members. Strong brands and healthy cultures always exist as interconnected components, requiring each other to flourish. We are tremendously proud of the culture we have built at Y-12 Credit Union, and we are grateful to be acknowledged for our diligent efforts in ensuring our employees feel valued and are empowered to provide our members with exceptional service,” said Boston.

Top Workplaces awards are based on feedback from a research-backed employee engagement survey.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
