CFCU Named One of Metro Detroit’s "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For"

We are excited to announce that for the 11th year in a row, Community Financial Credit Union has been named one of Metro Detroit’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies To Work For™! This award recognizes companies for excellence in human resources practices that create exceptional work environments.

So how does a company receive this honor? Awards are based on detailed questionnaires completed by nominated companies and their employees. Companies provide information about things like: work place communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, employee recognition, and retention. The employees then fill out an extensive survey, and winners are selected based on independent research on key measures in those various categories.

“This award depends in large part on data collected from Community Financial team members and we appreciate their recognition of Community Financial as a great place to work. We participate in this program as a way to help attract and retain the best team members to fulfill Community Financial’s purpose of enhancing the financial well-being of every member,” said Kathleen Hinchcliff, Manager/Education and Development.

So what makes CFCU stand out among our peers? We try to create a culture of team work and fun! Here are a few of the perks our team members receive:
  • Massage days
  • Volunteer days off with pay
  • Longevity program with rewards
  • Community involvement opportunities
  • Employee referral reward program
  • College scholarships for team members and their children 
  • Tuition reimbursement 
  • Generous vacation time and 401(k) match 
  • Paid day off during birthday month 
  • Car detailing service days 
  • Fun activities/competitions throughout the year 
“I was able to use my Volunteer Day Off with Pay in August and volunteer with an organization called Life Remodeled to help clean up neighborhoods in Detroit. It is so important to me to be able to give back to the community by volunteering with local non-profit organizations,” said Jean Sterioff, Marketing Rep. at CFCU. “Community Financial is a credit union that supports employees who want to make a difference in their communities.”

The credit union also conducts ongoing training and leadership development programs to maintain a talented and dedicated team. Team members and their families are provided with the resources they need to protect and enhance their financial security and to balance the priorities of work and personal life.

The 2016 award competition included 1,000 nominations and more than 400 applications. At Community Financial we recognize our employees as our greatest assets, and we are proud that they have chosen us once again as the “Best and Brightest.”
