Bethpage FCU ranked as the Top Long Island Workplace for 2018 in a recent Newsday poll, and was also given the “Clued in Senior Management Award,” recognizing how senior managers understand the happenings at the credit union.
Newsday, Long Island’s top daily newspaper, had Energage, a consulting and research firm, anonymously poll more than 24,000 employees at 116 Long Island employers. They questioned employees on their salary, benefits, company leadership and overall workplace culture.
Results of the poll indicated that Bethpage FCU ranks extremely high in workplace engagement.
Bethpage encourages their employees to join various clubs and noted the credit union’s culture of fostering a strong work-life balance, including the ability to work from home as needed.
“My biggest takeaway has been the sense of pride winning the award gives to all of our employees,” said Linda Armyn, SVP of corporate affairs at Bethpage FCU. “We have a highly collaborative workforce because, in the same way that we care about our members, we equally care about our employees.”
Bethpage conducts two employee opinion surveys annually to ensure all staff are satisfied, and adds or alters employee programs to better meet evolving needs.
“Our employees are our most important resource, and we are delighted to hear their positive feedback in this survey,” said Melissa Freeney, VP of HR/learning at Bethpage FCU. “We’re focused on providing the best service possible to our members, and that would not be possible without the dedication and support of our 688 employees,” said Freeney.
