Vision Credit Union named one of Alberta's Top 70 Employers for the second year in a row

Vision Credit Union has been named one of Alberta's Top 70 Employers for the second year in a row, by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, a joint venture publication of Postmedia Network and Mediacorp Canada.

Alberta's Top 70 Employers are those that have lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. They are evaluated based on the physical workplace, work and social atmosphere, financial and family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, training and skills development, and community involvement. They are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

The designation is one in which Vision Credit Union takes great pride, and will continue to strive to achieve.

Vision Credit Union wins Credit Union of the Year

Vision Credit Union was named Credit Union of the Year at the Alberta Central Annual General Meeting in Edmonton April 13 to 15.

The Credit Union of the Year award is presented to a credit union in Alberta for outstanding performance, community support, and system leadership and collaboration, all traits which Vision Credit Union showed in abundance in 2015. In addition to having the best loan and deposit growth of all 27 credit unions in Alberta, we had the best ROA growth and best long term performance.

The Credit Union of the Year recognition is very special considering that Vision Credit Union is still less than two years old, having been formed with the merger of Battle River Credit Union and Caisse Horizon Credit Union in May 2014.

Credit Unions win First in Overall Customer Service Excellence

For the eleventh consecutive year, Canadians ranked credit unions first in overall Customer Service Excellence, among all financial institutions, surpassing all Canadian banks in Ipsos' (formerly Synovate) annual Best Banking Awards. Credit unions also took sole honours in two other categories: Values My Business and Branch Service Excellence.

Survey results show that credit unions also tied for first in the following categories among all financial institutions: Products & Services Excellence, Financial Planning & Advice, ATM Banking Excellence, Online Banking Excellene, Automated Telephone Banking Excellence and Live Agent Telephone Banking Excellence.
