WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (August 22, 2019) – Truliant Federal Credit Union has been named a top employer in North Carolina by one of the nation’s most acclaimed business publications.
Forbes Magazine partnered with market-research company Statista to pinpoint the organizations liked best by employees in the publication’s first-ever ranking of America’s best employers by state. Unlike Forbes’ annual list of the best employers, this list features a breakdown of all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Truliant, headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C. ranked at number 17 on the list edging out some of the state's largest employers. According to Forbes, it worked with Statista to come up with the rankings by launching an anonymous survey consisting of 50,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees.
The credit union has more than 500 employees in the Piedmont Triad and more than 700 throughout its footprint in the Carolinas and Virginia. Truliant has pioneered a mission-driven, member-focused, dynamic, engaging, collaborative workplace that operates on a belief of putting members first.
“Truliant is a vibrant and rewarding place to work with a compelling mission, great benefits and outstanding workforce,” said Sherri Thomas, chief human resources and organizational development officer. “We place a major emphasis on job satisfaction. Truliant works hard to engage employees by offering career opportunities, great benefits and fun workplace activities. Being recognized as a well-liked employer reflects our commitment."
The credit union supports its employees through several employee focused functions, including its annual TruFest celebration, bringing together its entire workforce for a day to celebrate Truliant’s mission-driven culture and recognize employee contributions to it; onsite gym at its headquarters and tuition reimbursement; and its Family Fun Day at Dan Nicholas Park in Salisbury, an event filled with giveaways and entertainment.
Truliant offers a rich benefits package, including medical, dental, vision and short-and long-term disability. Employees are also provided a pension plan, 401(K) with matching employer contributions and life insurance benefits. Most recently, Truliant raised its minimum wage to $15 per hour and increased the number of paid volunteer hours offered to full and part-time employees.
