Mennonite Savings and Credit Union (MSCU) has been named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada for the second consecutive year, moving to 19th from our debut at 47th last year. The 2011 list will be published in the Nov. 8, 2010 issue of Maclean’s magazine, available on newsstands Oct. 28th.
“MSCU’s significantly improved ranking speaks volumes about our staff’s growing commitment to serve our members well and to live out our core values: integrity, compassion and responsible stewardship”, says Brent Zorgdrager, chief executive officer. “Our highly engaged staff clearly expressed their belief in our mission, their dedication to the organization and their willingness to go the extra mile every day to provide exceptional member service.” Zorgdrager adds that, “I’m thrilled to be leading an organization where this is the heartfelt sentiment of staff.”
Becoming a Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers is an involved process. The study is open to organizations that have operated in Canada for at least three years and have between 50 and 399 Canadian-based permanent employees. One of the highlights of this study is that employees decide which organizations make the list. The study measures employee engagement, and as such organizations that are among the Top 50 enjoy the key benefits of high engagement: lower turnover, less absenteeism, greater employee productivity, and higher customer satisfaction.
