The Oregonian Names First Tech Federal Credit Union a Winner of the Oregon and Southwestern Washington Top Workplaces 2021 Award

(SAN JOSE, Calif. and HILLSBORO, Ore.) – September 30, 2021 – First Tech Federal Credit Union, the nation’s eighth largest credit union, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by The Oregonian Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“We strive to create a work environment where employees are heard and appreciated by leadership, given opportunities to learn and grow, and feel included and valued throughout all aspects of the company culture,” said First Tech Federal Credit Union President and CEO Greg Mitchell. “The pandemic re-emphasized how important our workplace culture is and this recognition is a testament to our relentless efforts and people-before-profits philosophy at First Tech. We are proud to be a workplace with such talented, driven, and genuinely wonderful employees.”
