Latino Credit Union is proud to announce that it has been named one of the 2016 Best Credit Unions to Work For. Credit Union Journal has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.

The survey and awards program were designed to identify, recognize and honor the best credit unions. The final list of winners is made up of 45 credit unions and will be featured in the September issue of Credit Union Journal and is also now available online at CUJournal.com.

To be considered for participation, credit unions had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 25 employees working in the U.S.
  • Be in business a minimum of one year
  • Be in one of the following categories based upon asset size: Over $1 billion, $500M-$1B, $200M-$500M or Under $200M

Selecting the final winners involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating credit union’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the best credit unions and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.

“We are proud and glad to be part of such an exceptional group. At Latino Credit Union we understand that our organizational culture is vital when attracting and retaining talent, that is why we strive to create a place where continuous education and opportunities for growth are constant. In addition, our excellent benefits package allows our employees to plan for the future while not having to worry about the present,” said Rebekah Cid del Prado, Vice President, Human Resource Development.
