Fox Cities Chamber program recognizes employers who demonstrate a significant commitment to promoting work/life integration for their employees
Capital Credit Union has been certified as a Gold-Status Employee Friendly Workplace by the Fox Cities Chamber. The Employee Friendly Workplace certification status is determined by the Fox Cities Chamber based on an organization’s ratings in four categories: paid leave and flexible work schedules, health & wellness support, financial support, and perks. Gold-certified employers go above and beyond, offering benefits and policies that promote work/life integration and strive to meet diverse needs of employees.
Laurie Butz, President and CEO of Capital Credit Union, expresses the importance behind the certification. “At Capital Credit Union, we truly value our employees, and we want them to be able to see and feel that every day. We know that the service we provide to our members and community is at its best when we put our employees at the forefront, and this certification is a great reflection of the positive workplace we’ve been working hard to create and maintain.”
Some of the initiatives that contribute to Capital Credit Union’s certification include the option for remote work, paid time off for both full-time and part-time employees, health and wellness incentives, tuition and training advance reimbursement, and incentivized volunteer time. Along with others, these benefits led Capital Credit Union to be recognized as a Gold-Status Employee Friendly Workplace.
“Creating a workplace where employees feel cared about, listened to, rewarded, and appreciated is critical to who we are as an organization,” says Butz. “In order to live our mission of ‘doing the right thing,’ we need to start by doing what’s right for our employees – which is doing what we can to make sure they look forward to coming to work, find meaning in their careers, and take pride in what they’re doing for our community and members each and every day.”
The mission of the Fox Cities Employee Friendly Workplace Initiative is to encourage the adoption of more employee friendly workplace practices and policies in order to enhance work/life balance and successfully attract and retain the best employees to the region.
To date the Chamber has certified 18 other Fox Cities companies as being employee friendly. Certification is open to all employers with operations located in the Fox Cites (Calumet, Outagamie and northern Winnebago Counties). The comprehensive benefit criteria incorporated into the application is intended to be attainable as well as aspirational for employers of any size across all industry sectors.
