Pawtucket Credit Union was recently awarded first place, for the second consecutive year, in the Providence Business News’ Best Places to Work in Rhode Island survey. The selection process includes rating organizations on benefit programs, work arrangements, opportunities for advancement and personal development, and more.
“This program is the gold standard for recognizing businesses that value their employees,” said Karl Kozak, president and CEO. “In our 85-year history, there's never been a layoff. We continue to expand and that has a lot to do with our employees. Our employees are our most valuable asset.”
Promoting from within is something the Credit Union whole-heartedly supports. Staff members receive first consideration when a position needs to be filled. In addition to a very competitive compensation and benefits package, PCU offers employees home buying assistance and scholarship opportunities for their children. The Credit Union also enables employees to volunteer time to local non-profit and civic organizations during work hours.
