VANCOUVER ISLAND – Coastal Community Credit Union’s focus on building an engaging, healthy and inclusive workplace continues to earn national recognition.
The largest Island-based credit union has once again been recognized for its workplace culture. Coastal Community Credit Union’s latest distinction is making the Forbes Canada Best Employers 2022 list. This award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“We’re thrilled to have our company culture recognized,” said Bruno Dragani, Chief People and Administration Officer at CCCU. “This achievement belongs to our entire team. We’re a people-centered organization, and our employees are what set us apart. As an organization, we’re committed to delivering a healthy, connected and inclusive work environment so every employee can reach their fullest potential. That focus has allowed our talented experts to bring our core vision of improving people’s financial health to life through thick and thin for over 75 years.”
Forbes and Statista selected the Canada’s Best Employers 2022 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of more than 10,000 Canadian employees working for companies with more than 500 employees in Canada. The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
It’s not first time Coastal Community’s workplace culture has been recognized. The business leader is currently certified as a Great Place to Work™, and in past years has been recognized for its engaged culture and emphasis on corporate social responsibility.
“The last couple of years have underlined how important it is to empower your employees by growing leadership skills and deepening skillsets,” said Dragani. “I’m very grateful to be part of a team that can pivot to embrace both opportunities and challenges, all while supporting our members, clients, communities and each other.”
