Arizona State Credit Union Four-Time Recipient of Workplace Excellence Award
Credit Union recognized for employee satisfaction
PHOENIX, Ariz. - For the fourth time, Arizona State Credit Union has received the Peter Barron Stark (PBS) Companies Award for Workplace Excellence. The award is especially significant this year as Arizona State Credit Union received an overall favorable response rating from its associates despite the difficult times facing the financial services industry and the down economy. The Credit Union maintained current associate programs and added several more allowing its already positive corporate culture to improve, a requirement for winning the Workplace Excellence Award.
"It is with pride that we award Arizona State Credit Union with the 2010 Peter Barron Stark Companies' Award for Workplace Excellence," said Peter Stark, President of Peter Barron Stark Companies. "When compared to over 250 other organizations in our benchmarks, Arizona State Credit Union demonstrates their strong leadership and commitment to employee engagement and satisfaction. Many organizations talk about their desire to be a great employer. Arizona State Credit Union has put vision into action and their 2010 survey results are the proof."
With a competitive benefits package and wellness initiative, there is a constant effort to increase associate satisfaction. Associates positively recognize such efforts; survey results indicate an overwhelming majority feel their job responsibilities contribute to the Credit Union's success. Arizona State Credit Union has received the Workplace Excellence Award every year it has completed the associate opinion survey with Peter Barron Stark Companies.
"It is truly an honor to receive this award as it speaks to our associate-focused culture," said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. "We strive for on-the-job satisfaction and understand the importance of showing associates they are a significant part of the Credit Union's success. Such an environment, in turn, allows associates to offer members the exemplary customer service that builds long-lasting relationships."
