At The Golden 1 Credit Union, a major emphasis is placed on providing exceptional service to its members. Creating a strong workplace is an important piece in supporting this goal. Golden 1 was honored for its efforts in this area by being named the winner of the Large, Not-for-Profit category at the Sacramento Workplace Excellence Leader (SWEL) awards in 2009. This marks the second time the credit union has taken home this award, having previously won in 2005.
More than 100 companies were nominated for excellence in nine categories. Golden 1 earned praise from judges for the introduction of its new Golden 1 University program. Through this training, staff members can take courses designed to help them grow professionally. Golden 1 employees learn information relevant to professional development in voluntary courses taught by skilled instructors.
Golden 1 President and CEO, Teresa A. Halleck, accepted the award on the credit union’s behalf. "A positive work environment has a trickle-down effect throughout an entire
organization," she said. "It creates an atmosphere where happy employees go above and beyond to do whatever it takes to provide Golden 1 members with exceptional service."
