Community Financial was just named one of Metro Detroit’s “101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” for the ninth year in a row! This award recognizes companies for excellence in human resources practices that create exceptional work environments. We are pleased to be recognized for our values and proud that our team members love working here.
We asked our three new team members from the Student-Run Credit Union team to tell us about what they like most about working at Community Financial. Our new Education Partnership Coordinators Erin Ilg, Christine Schilling and Angela Corbin are all starting work in their new positions with plenty of great ideas to promote the importance of financial literacy at a young age.
Brand new to the credit union, Erin feels as though she has been working with her fellow colleagues for years and says that words cannot express how welcoming it has been to work at Community Financial.
“The people at Community Financial are truly some of the kindest, easiest people to get to know and work with,” Erin said. “I have been eased into my position and I keep hearing the phrase, ‘Don’t worry, if you make a mistake, we can always fix it!’ My colleagues and managers at Community Financial continue to impress me with their kindhearted and embracing approach.”
When asked why she appreciates the work done at Community Financial, Christine said, “I believe that Community Financial has the right leaders in place, from the Executive Leadership Team down to the managers in each department. Because of that people feel listened to, and that their thoughts and concerns are considered. That’s important to me, to feel I have an impact.”
Angela loves that at Community Financial she can work as part of a team and have fun. “We have so many opportunities in Community Financial’s northern service region to really get involved and show students that learning, saving and preparing for the future is not scary but something that can put them one step ahead,” Angela said.
Erin, Christine and Angela will help run our Student-Run Credit Union program in 41 schools across southeast and northern Michigan. We are glad they are here and can’t wait to see what they accomplish in their new roles!
