WHILE MOUN­TAIN AMER­ICA CREDIT Union’s mis­sion is to help its mem­bers with their fi­nan­cial dreams, the CU also is ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance and ed­u­ca­tion to its val­ued em­ploy­ees. To this end, MACU part­nered with Green­path, a non-profit fi­nan­cial-well­ness group that pro­vides free and con­fi­den­tial one-on-one fi­nan­cial coun­sel­ing.

“Em­ploy­ees can take ad­van­tage of our in­ter­nal ‘Fi­nan­cial Path­ways’ ed­u­ca­tional tools and events. Our ex­perts in wealth man­age­ment are avail­able to of­fer em­ploy­ees the same valu­able re­tire­ment plan­ning ser­vices our mem­bers en­joy,” said Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of Hu­man Re­sources Pam Lewis. “We also proudly of­fer ed­u­ca­tional as­sis­tance for con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion.”

Em­ploy­ees seek­ing higher ed­u­ca­tion can tap into MACU’S in­ter­nal Ca­reer Ad­vance­ment Pro­gram and can con­sider tak­ing ca­reer ex­plo­ration pro­grams and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment cour­ses through Moun­tain Amer­ica Univer­sity.

“Most re­cently, em­ploy­ees were of­fered an on­site and on­line pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment course val­ued at over $1,500 per per­son en­roll­ment fee, for free,” said Lewis. “Our fo­cus re­volves around treat­ing and rec­og­niz­ing our em­ploy­ees the way we would want them to treat our mem­bers. We see cor­re­la­tion be­tween our em­ployee en­gage­ment and the en­gage­ment of our mem­bers.”

Founded in 1936, Moun­tain Amer­ica Credit Union sup­ports 87 branches serves more than 600,000 mem­bers.

Board mem­bers and Sandy City, UT Mayor Tom Dolan joined Moun­tain Amer­ica Credit Union CEO Ster­ling Nielsen in a ground break­ing cer­e­mony for the CU’S new cor­po­rate head­quar­ters.
