Arizona State Credit Union Five-Time Recipient of Workplace Excellence Award

Credit Union recognized for employee satisfaction

PHOENIX, Ariz. - For the fifth time, Arizona State Credit Union received the Peter Barron Stark (PBS) Companies' Award for Workplace Excellence.

"Not only have they won this award, they have also made it into the top ten companies in our Best-of-the-Best Benchmark," said Peter Barron Stark, president of Peter Barron Stark Companies. W"hile many organizations talk about their desire to be a great employer, Arizona State Credit Union has put their values into action through their commitment to associates and members by fostering a great internal culture. Their 2012 survey results are proof."

The award directly speaks to the organization's efforts to maintain a positive corporate culture and keep associates satisfied in the workplace. This is pertinent to the Credit Union's commitment to meeting the needs to those in the local Arizona communities the financial cooperative serves.

"Arizona State Credit Union strives for on-the-job satisfaction and understanding the importance of showing associates they are a significant part of the Credit Union's success," said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. "Without meeting the needs of our associates, we could not offer members the exemplary customer service that builds long-lasting relationships."

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.

This award follows on the heels of being named the 2012 Healthiest Employer in the Valley and the number one credit union in Arizona by Ranking Arizona: The Best of Arizona Business.
