National honor underscores the credit union’s commitment to its people-before-profit philosophy
(SAN JOSE, Calif. and HILLSBORO, Ore.) – February 1, 2022 – First Tech Federal Credit Union, the nation’s eighth largest credit union, has been awarded a Top Workplaces USA national honor by Top Workplaces. The list of workplaces is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading employee engagement technology company. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture that are critical to the success of every organization, including alignment, execution, and employee connection.
In September last year, First Tech was named as a Top Workplace in Oregon and Southwest Washington by The Oregonian for 2021.
“We work hard to foster a collaborative work environment and create a culture of belonging where every employee feels included and appreciated,” said First Tech Federal Credit Union President and CEO Greg Mitchell. “During a year of unprecedented challenges, our continued focus on fostering an inclusive culture and prioritizing the growth and happiness of our employees has been of top priority. This national award is a testament to our resilience and core values as an organization. We are truly honored to be recognized as an employer of choice and thank our employees for all they do to shape the future of our company.”

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
