We've been Named a 2022 Top Place to Work!
By: Laura Mugge
The Post-Dispatch has awarded Electro Savings Credit Union a Top Workplaces 2022 honor. As one of Missouri’s fastest-growing credit unions, Electro prioritizes the health and success of its employees as part of its overall corporate culture and work environment.
“It is such an honor to be recognized. A Top Workplace title is one of our ongoing goals,” said Jim Struble, President & CEO of Electro. “However, I promise we are just getting started. Our ambition is not only to be the best place to work in St. Louis but also in our industry. We firmly believe that our journey to accomplish this will make us the best place to do banking in our communities. As we take care of our employees, our employees will take care of our members.”
In recent years, Electro has implemented several new programs and policy improvements for employees that focus on their health, wellness, and professional development, such as:
- The Power of You – a bonus program for employees to submit process improvement ideas
- Evening/weekend email ban
- Meeting-free Fridays
- Expanded employee discounts on credit union products and services
- Volunteer Time Off (VTO) – 8 hours of paid time off per year to volunteer in the community
- Student loan pay down
- Interest-free technology loans
- and so much more
Top Workplace designations are based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.
"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that positively impact their people and their business."
