Our Values in Action
At UW Credit Union, we make a meaningful difference through innovative initiatives, charitable giving and sustainable practices to help strengthen and protect the incredible communities we call home.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
One of our top priorities as a financial institution and local employer is fostering a culture that's diverse, inclusive and helps everyone thrive.
We advance our commitment in a variety of ways that impact both employees and members, including talent acquisition, policy audits and accessibility standards.
We support hundreds of worthy causes each year through our charitable giving and volunteering, as well as through college scholarships, financial workshops, free financial services and much more.

UW Credit Union provides the unique employment perk of paid volunteer time. It's a great way for employees to give back while having fun!
Full-time employees receive up to 16 hours of paid time each year to volunteer for worthwhile causes and organizations, either individually or in teams with coworkers.
Our Foundation Wage
We do the right thing. It’s been UW Credit Union’s guiding philosophy for nearly a century, and it applies to how we treat our employees as well as how we serve our members. We believe that all employees deserve to earn a sustainable income, and that’s why everyone on our team earns a minimum of $17 an hour – more than double Wisconsin’s minimum wage of $7.25.
Our longstanding practice of paying above-market wages is a worthwhile investment. Not only are we an award-winning workplace with exceptionally low employee turnover, but our members benefit from outstanding customer service provided by engaged and talented employees. In fact, in Consumer Reports’ ranking of banks and credit unions [January 2016], UW Credit Union ranked first in the state in customer satisfaction and among the best in the nation.
