SESLOC federal credit union recognized for workplace excellence
SESLOC Federal Credit Union has been given an “Award for Workplace Excellence” by Peter Barron Stark Companies based on the results of their 2016 employee opinion survey. The survey, originally conducted in 2015, measured employee engagement and job satisfaction. SESLOC’s 2016 survey had an overall satisfaction score of 89.7-percent, a significant increase of 8.1 percentage points from the 2015 survey which was also above benchmark levels. Organizations must achieve an overall favorable response exceeding 80-percent to achieve this award.
SESLOC results were compared to those of over 300 well-known businesses throughout the United States (including financial institutions) and the responses of more than 100,000 employees. SESLOC had a 97-percent response rate from its 139 employees who answered 100 survey questions that covered topics such as work environment, clarity of purpose and goals, communication, ability to take action, commitment to quality and service, motivation, training and compensation.
“Our corporate values align with employees’ personal values—integrity, respect, and making a positive impact in peoples’ lives on a daily basis. It makes it fun to come to work each day knowing you are part of a team all sharing the same values and working towards the same vision,” said Geri LaChance, SESLOC’s president and CEO.
When employees’ ambitions and values are in alignment with the organization’s goals and values, organizations typically see the higher levels of engagement and satisfaction, SESLOC has experienced. “Our employees enjoy SESLOC because we treat each other with the same respect that we do our members and our community,” said LaChance.
“SESLOC Federal Credit Union has once again proven their commitment to workplace excellence, as evidenced by their fantastic Employee Opinion Survey results,” said Peter Stark, President of Peter Barron Stark Companies. “We are thrilled to award and recognize the full leadership team in growing an organization that values and appreciates its employee resources.”
