Collins Community Credit Union, headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
"We are honored and humbled to receive this award. It's a testament to the Collins Community Credit Union team and all their great work," said Stefanie Rupert, CEO of Collins Community Credit Union. "Effective workplaces recognize that employees are an organization's greatest resource and make a critical difference in its ability to not only survive, but to thrive. Here at Collins Community Credit Union, there's a sensational feeling of everyone being 'in this together,' and fairness and respect are always highly valued across the organization."
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits." says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day--the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.
