AmeriCU named one of best companies to work for by business group


AmeriCU Credit Union has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in New York State for 2016 by a partnership of the New York State Society for Human Resource Management, The Business Council of New York, Best Companies Group, and Journal Multimedia Corp.

Created in 2007, these annual awards are a program that evaluates and ranks the best places of employment based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies.

To be considered for participation, all companies entered into a two-part survey which evaluated employer benefits and policies and employee engagement and satisfaction. 

AmeriCU will be honored at an awards dinner at the Albany Marriott Tuesday, May 3.

During the event, AmeriCU will learn its rank among 35 companies in the category for large-sized employers with 250 or more U.S. employees.

In addition, a special publication profiling all 80 winning organizations and their unique employment perks will be produced for distribution to event attendees, higher education institutions, as well as thousands of human resources professionals and organizations across New York State.

AmeriCU President and CEO Mark Pfisterer said, “As a member-owned organization, AmeriCU Credit Union believes that it takes committed, engaged employees to provide the consistent, exemplary service our members expect. Therefore, employee satisfaction and development are high priorities for us.”

“We are deeply honored to be among the Best Companies to Work for in New York State. On behalf of the Credit Union, I thank each of our employees for being an important part of the AmeriCU family and for doing a superb job each and every day,” the company president said.

AmeriCU Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative serving eight counties in Central and Northern New York. AmeriCU Credit Union is located in central New York and is among New York State’s largest financial cooperatives, according to Pfisterer, who adds that the organization has built relationships with members since 1950 and serves more than 100,000 members world-wide through its remote contact center and its 18 financial center locations.
