Meriwest, Selected as Best Place to Work in 2020

SAN JOSE, Calif. – – Meriwest Credit Union, one of the largest credit unions serving Silicon Valley, is excited to announce they are being recognized by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal as a Best Place to Work company in 2020! Select employees from the Bay Area were named winners on April 24, 2020.  These winning organizations were honored for having created exceptional workplaces that their employees value highly.  

Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across 5 categories according to the number of Bay Area employees.  The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices.  The rankings were unveiled on April 24, 2020 in the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journals.
Out of the thousands of companies in the Bay Area, this annual ranking shines the spotlight on 125 local companies whose employees rate them as exceptional.  What makes the Best Places to Work award so distinguished is that each company’s employees exclusively determined the winners. Thousands of Bay Area workers were asked to complete an assessment that measures their company on such values as trust in fun, solid compensation and benefits offerings, leadership, collaborative culture, personal engagement and satisfaction in management practices. 

CEO, Julie Kirsch congratulated employees. “The biggest factor in making Meriwest a Best Place to Work isn’t necessarily a specific program or process. It is YOU!  It is in the culture, philosophy, and attitude within our organization that is driven by our core values.  When those factors play a part in daily decisions, the end result is a culture that deeply respects and cares for each other. Thank you for all the things you do, big or small, to help us achieve this distinguished honor.”
