WFCU Credit Union Named to the 2021 List of Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance!

Windsor, ON – WFCU Credit Union is excited to announce that they have been named to the 2021 list of Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance. Great Place to Work® announced in April 2021, that WFCU Credit Union had been certified as a Great Place to Work and named 37th on this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada list for businesses with 100-999 employees. This most recent designation comes as an extension to this achievement.

“Being acknowledged as a leader within our industry is recognition that we take great pride in receiving,” explains Eddie Francis, President and CEO, WFCU Credit Union. “This designation is a result of feedback from our staff, which speaks volumes of each and every employee who plays a role in making our corporate culture one of the best in our sector. Being a great place to work provides an environment for staff to excel and to provide exemplary service for our members and our communities; this is an extremely important part of our differentiation. It is something that myself, the executive and management teams, and the Board of Directors value deeply. This designation is a celebration of our hard-working employees.”

WFCU Credit Union received this recent honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work. The 2021 list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work through their Trust Index Survey. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error. Organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year and work primarily in the Financial Services and Insurance sector.

“Part of our mission statement speaks to our commitment to make our community the best place to live and work. It’s apparent to see that these are not just words but a true philosophy that is carried out each day. This designation is not only a success for our organization, but also for our community,” said Marty Gillis, Chair, WFCU Credit Union.

Through WFCU Credit Union’s leading compensation and benefits package, extensive training and development opportunities, and top-rated wellness program they continue to put their staff at the forefront of their business model; understanding that the company’s success is a direct representation of their employees’ personal growth, accomplishments and satisfaction.
