Great Place To Work: Westminster Savings now on list of Best Workplaces in British Columbia

Good things come in threes for Westminster Savings

Surrey, BC – BC’s sixth-largest credit union, with over 400 staff and 13 branches, has been named to the 2019 list of Best Workplaces in British Columbia. The credit union also made the list of Best Workplaces in the Financial Services and Insurance industry just two months ago and received official Great Place to Work certification just a month before that, so this marks the third form of recognition as a top employer for Westminster Savings in 2019.

Being named to the Best Workplaces list is validation of the overall employee experience. It is also a valuable tool for attracting new talent and an important ingredient for customers.

“We are tremendously proud to be recognized and we know it is important to stand out in today’s competitive labour market,” says TJ Schmaltz, Chief Human Resources Officer at Westminster Savings. “Our employees have worked incredibly hard this year as we prepare for a possible merger. The fact that our employees continue to help build a tremendous culture and show up with enthusiasm and engagement, speaks volumes to the quality of people we have working here. For customers, we know that they want to do their banking at a place where the staff are treated well and enjoy being at work every day.”

Great Place to Work® determined their BEST list based on the overall Trust Index score from the employees. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, be headquartered in British Columbia and have at least 15 employees working in the province that participated in our Trust Index employee survey.
