Each year, The Oregonian newspaper in Portland, OR conducts employee surveys for local businesses to identify the region’s Top 100 Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through third-party surveys administered by their research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. Energage has surveyed more than 47,000 organizations representing well over 16 million employees in the United States. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. The results of their 2018 survey place Columbia Credit Union among their Top Workplaces in the Portland metro area.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

“We are extremely proud of this new Top Workplace honor from The Oregonian,” said Columbia Credit Union’s President and CEO, Steve Kenny. “We’ve won many awards over the years, but it’s every bit as important to us to rank as highly with our employees as we do with our members and the communities we serve. We couldn’t have gotten these awards without our employees and their ongoing commitment to expecting the best.”

Columbia CU’s Senior Vice President Chief Human Resource Officer/Legal, Carol McCaulley added this, “Being included in this elite group of local employers is a real honor and it’s in line with the “Best of the Best – Award for Workplace Excellence” we’ve received consistently from Peter Barron Stark since 1998. We’ve worked to make Columbia Credit Union a great place to work, but the survey responses from our employees validate our efforts and demonstrate that we really do expect the best and it shows.”
