Prospera Credit Union Certified as a Great Workplace

Abbotsford, BC, February 22, 2018: Prospera Credit Union is proud to announce that for the second year in a row we have been certified as a Great Place to Work®. This certification is issued by Great Place to Work® Canada, an independent organization that conducts a yearly analysis of Canadian workplaces. The information used is gathered directly from employees, who participate in an anonymous survey once a year about their experience working with Prospera.

Prospera is a values-based organization with a clear purpose to make a meaningful difference in the financial well-being of our members. We strive to cultivate a culture of positivity, inclusiveness and learning that empowers our employees to develop strong relationships with peers and members, as we believe building relationships and understanding members’ needs to be central to how we operate. As a member-owned financial institution, we treat our members as if they were invited guests to our own home – and our staff are no different. Prospera is committed to a workplace culture that reflects these values and demonstrates to our employees how much we value them, and their contributions.

“Being certified as a Great Place to Work® is a true source of pride for all of us at Prospera,” says Shawn Good, President & CEO. “Trust is the foundation for strong relationships, high performance teams, and an exceptional culture. At Prospera we believe everyone is a leader, and leaders set the tone and ensure we authentically live our values every day through the service we provide to our members and to one another.”
