WFCU Credit Union Certified as a Great Place to Work® and Named a Best Workplace™ in Canada

Windsor, ON – Today, WFCU Credit Union (WFCU) is excited to announce that they have once again 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.

“As we all know, 2020 was a year unlike any other. This Great Place to Work® certification and Best Workplaces™ in Canada award has always been meaningful, but this year it has a greater significance,” explained Eddie Francis, President and CEO, WFCU. “Our employees went above and beyond to deliver an unwavering level of commitment and exceptional service to our members and communities we serve. I am very proud to know that the feedback our staff provided demonstrated that they felt this same level of commitment in return. The employee experience at WFCU Credit Union has always focused on ensuring that our staff feel recognized, connected with our workplace culture and values and that they know they are all an integral part of the WFCU family. As workplaces continue to see changes that we have never experienced before, this will always continue to be our focus at WFCU Credit Union.”

The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee driven, based on two criteria; two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organizations culture. This offers a comprehensive representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

“Awards like this are not just an achievement for the credit union, they are an achievement for our dedicated staff too. This prestigious designation is very well deserved,” said Marty Gillis, Chair, WFCU Credit Union Board of Directors. “Thank you to all the staff at WFCU for not just making our organization thrive, but for all that they do for our community each day, through each and every contribution.”

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 success of the company is a direct representation of their employees’ success and satisfaction.

This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees. This year, the awards were announced in a virtual format that brought companies together online to celebrate the fantastic achievements of the best workplaces across the country. This year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada List and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 16, 2021 in The Globe and Mail.
