Truliant Named #1 Best Place to Work By Triad Business Journal
Release date: 6/30/2017
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (June 30, 2017) -- Truliant Federal Credit Union, one of the top 100 credit unions in the U.S. by membership size, was named the first-place winner in Triad Business Journal’s 2017 Best Places to Work in the publication’s Extra-Large Employers category.
The publication sought nominations in print, online, and social media for the award. Quantum Workplace, an Omaha, Neb.-based research firm, surveyed employees at nominated companies. Employees evaluated their employer on points designed to measure ten key engagement categories including team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits.
Truliant was named as number one in the Extra-Large Employers category of companies with more than 300 employees. The credit union has 527 employees in the Piedmont Triad and more than 650 throughout its footprint in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The Credit Union has pioneered a mission-driven, member-focused, dynamic, engaging, collaborative workplace that operates on a belief of putting members first. As part of that commitment, Truliant has pioneered many areas to help improve its members’ lives, including the No-Cost Credit Review and TruFinancial Checkup — tools that help members gauge where they are in relation to their goals.
“Truliant’s success is driven by the amazing people who’ve aligned themselves with our mission-driven culture, including our employees, members, advisors, Board, and sponsor companies,” said Marc Schaefer, president and CEO of Truliant. “We’re pleased to share this award with everyone who makes Truliant a remarkable company.”
Truliant supports and engages its employees through several employee focused functions, including its annual TruFest celebration, bringing together its entire workforce for a day of fun, entertainment and special games; onsite gym at its headquarters and subsidized Fitbits for staff; and its first Family Fun Day at Bailey Park this spring, an event filled with giveaways and entertainment.
Additionally, employees participate in activities and fundraisers organized by fellow co-workers to give back their communities, and take advantage of opportunities to showcase their talent and commitment for causes supported by Truliant.
“A diverse and inclusive culture is a major factor in what defines this Credit Union and our performance. Truliant is an attractive workplace because we offer a full-range of employee benefits, but also because our people embrace helping members achieve their goals, keeping their best interest before profits, and truly making a difference in their lives,” said Charles Goransson, chief human resources and development officer.
