Windsor, ON – Today, WFCU Credit Union is excited to announce that they have been named to the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ in Financial Services and Insurance. Great Place to Work® announced in April 2020, that WFCU Credit Union had been certified as a Great Place to Work® and named 24th on the year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada list for businesses with 100-999 employees; and announced in August 2020 that WFCU Credit Union had been named to the 2020 list of Best Workplaces for Giving back. This most recent designation comes as an extension to these achievements.

“In order to have been considered for this recent designation within our sector, we must have first been successful in achieving the Great Place to Work® certification,” explains Eddie Francis, President and CEO, WFCU Credit Union. “Our staff provided their feedback and opinions on our company and our culture and because of them we achieved these distinct designations. Knowing that our staff feel appreciated, enjoy coming to work every day, and consider WFCU Credit Union a great place to work is extremely important to myself, the executive and management teams and the Board of Directors.”

WFCU Credit Union received this recent honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. This list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.

To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year and work primarily in the Financial Services and Insurance sector. Great Place to Work® determined the BEST based on employee responses to their Trust Index Survey.

“Continuing to receive designations which highlight WFCU Credit Union as a great place to work is evidence to the fact that we take our philosophy of hiring the best, treating them well and seeing them stay, very seriously,” said Marty Gillis, Chair, WFCU Credit Union.
