Receiving this award celebrates the credit union’s ongoing efforts to foster a healthy, vibrant and engaged workforce, according to a press release from First Credit Union (FCU).
“This award belongs to our team,” said Linda Bowyer, CEO of First Credit Union. “Being honored as BC’s Top Employer recognizes the great benefits and support offered by First Credit Union, but it’s our employees who make this company an amazing place to work, with their commitment to our members, communities we serve and each other. Our employees take great pride in working here, knowing that the work they do every day contributes to the well-being of our communities.
