As we do each year, WSECU closed for one day in October to gather our full team of employees (some 500 strong) for an all-hands meeting and recognition event in Tacoma.
It’s an amazing sight to see everyone gather in one room together to reflect on the past year and look forward to the one ahead. This helps us focus on what we want to accomplish to improve member service and our impact beyond the doors of the credit union.
I want to tell you about the highlight of the day: a friendly competition among branches and back office departments where staff was challenged to come up with ways for WSECU to become more deeply engaged in the communities in which we work and serve.
Member-owned credit unions give back and foster shared prosperity in many ways. The dollars you deposit help your neighbors borrow to meet their needs. We also believe we have a role to play in strengthening communities by investing in our own backyards through partnerships with nonprofit organizations working in the areas of education, self-sufficiency, public assets and small business ownership.
Employees were grouped in teams and each team selected an organization whose work centers around at least one of these areas. They were asked to develop a project plan that would leverage WSECU’s resources, such as financial contributions or employee volunteer time, in support of the agency’s programs. The teams presented their proposals to a panel of WSECU leaders and impartial community members. Four finalists were selected to implement their ideas. The day was full of creativity, meaningful learning about local needs and solutions and a shared understanding that we each can have an impact by giving back.
It really comes down to this: at WSECU we believe life is made better by banking together. Cooperatives embody the notion that when we join together we can do more -- for each other and our neighbors. Our employees are truly amazing. Every day I’m proud to be a part of this group of caring individuals and to see all the good they are doing in our communities.
If we can give you a hand with meeting your financial goals for 2014, please come and talk with us. We’re ready to help you take care of today and grow for tomorrow. Happy New Year!
