Measuring employee engagement is an bi-annual practice at UW Credit Union. Employee feedback is turned into action plans that have helped sustain high levels of employee engagement. We believe that the ongoing feedback, coupled with our investment in employee development, has resulted in our low employee turnover rate.
In 2011, 98% of our employees completed the engagement survey. This participation rate is a clear indicator of how actively engaged our employees are. Our overall engagement score of 4.19 out of 5 is exceptional, and each year, we see continuous improvement regardless of our already high scores. We credit this to the employees of this organization and their commitment to making UW Credit Union one of the best places to work.
Also in 2011, we were named a recipient of the CUNA Human Resource Training and Development Council (CUNA HR/TD) Excellence Award for Employee Engagement. This award recognizes and honors credit unions that exemplify excellence in the human resources and training disciplines, and we were selected for our initiatives that create a culture of high engagement with our employees.
