Credit union senior managers present an award to Stephen Billo and Aaron Leggett for their idea to automate an internal process, which resulted in streamlining hours.
The credit union’s senior managers present an award to Diane Powers for her idea to save on document storage costs.
We recently implemented two more employee ideas through our nationally recognized Power of You Employee Engagement Program. Just as the program’s name suggests, the Power of You rewards credit union employees for positively impacting the credit union with their powerful ideas and insights.
Since the program’s inception in August 2018, credit union employees have submitted 25 Power of You ideas with four moving to implementation. “The Power of You gives staff a formal program to submit process improvement ideas that they believe will have a positive impact on the credit union, and then rewards them with a share of the credit union’s monetary benefit,” explains Vice President of Human Resources, Ashley Keegan.
“I am very proud of our Power of You program and excited to see more employee ideas,” says CEO, Jim Struble. “Who better to improve the credit union than the people that are the backbone of the organization, our employees.”
We received national recognition for our Power of You Employee Engagement Program at the 2019 CUNA HR & Organizational Development Council Awards.
