Westminster Savings Credit Union Recognized as one of Canada's 50 Best Employers

New Westminster, BC, October 18, 2012 – Westminster Savings Credit Union (Westminster Savings) has been named one of Canada’s Best Employers in a survey by Aon Hewitt, a global human resources consulting firm.

Aon Hewitt determines its 50 Best Employers based on employee engagement scores derived from a nationwide annual survey of employees. Westminster Savings’ employee engagement scores jumped substantially over the past year, placing it on the 50 Best Employers list for the first time as a result.

"We are proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Employers. It is a tribute to our team of more than 400 passionate and dedicated employees,” said President and CEO Barry Forbes. “At Westminster Savings, our employee recognition program, highly competitive employee benefits, emphasis on approachable leadership and commitment to helping our employees and customers achieve better balance both financially and in life are just some of the ways we strive to make Westminster Savings a great place to work."

Now in its 14th year, the Best Employers in Canada study is the only national survey in which employees themselves determine the best places to work. Aon Hewitt measures employee engagement by looking at the number of employees who are committed to remaining with their current employer; who are motivated by their organization’s culture to go above and beyond to contribute to business success; and who spoke positively about the organization to others.
