Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) has earned a national wellness award for the fourth consecutive year.
The National Best and Brightest in Wellness award honors organizations that make their workplaces, employees and communities a healthier place to work and live. The award recognizes and celebrates quality and excellence in health awareness through highlighting companies, schools, faith groups and others that promote a culture of wellness.
“Our employees’ well-being is a top priority for MSU Federal Credit Union,” said Silvia Dimma, MSUFCU’s chief human resources officer. “Empowering our employees to improve their health and overall well-being is a goal that the credit union’s CU Healthy Committee is fully committed to.”
Any company, no matter the type, can earn the National Best and Brightest in Wellness award by planning, implementing, and evaluating efforts in employee wellness, which ultimately creates a more vibrant community.
MSUFCU has reputation for excellence, having received multiple industry and workplace awards. In fact, for the sixth consecutive year, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press. This year, it was again recognized as one of CU Journal’s Best Credit Unions to Work For, a Michigan Best and Brightest in Wellness award winner, National Best and Brightest in Wellness award winner and is certified as a Great Place to Work. The credit union has also been nationally recognized for its financial education initiatives.
“Receiving national recognition for this work is a great honor,” said Dimma. “As an organization, we encourage our employees to improve their health and well-being through a variety of activities and events. Many of the activities involve team-building practices, which lead to a more positive work culture for our employees. As an example, employees can choose to participate in voluntary fitness challenges, financial wellness education classes or the many 5K runs/walks the credit union sponsors to support local charities.”
